As you all know (well if you’ve been keeping up with my posts that is) I threw in the towel during Nano and 50K words didn’t happen. But what did happen was a small selection of short stories and my return to the love of writing, so not a total loss.
Nano 2016 – Day 19
Well what can I say I’m currently near 18K words behind, so unless I’m allowed to skip work for the next 12 days it’s a safe bet that yet again I’m not going to complete Nanowrimo this year. Continue reading →
Nano 2016 – Day 7
So we are on Day 7 of the joy that is Nanowrimo and I am a tad behind. My total word count is 7543 which is below where I should be at this point. But you know what I don’t care. You want to know why? I’ve just completed my first short story. Black Gold.
Nano 2016 – Day 4
So what can I say. Its day 4 & if I continue as I’m going the estimate is I’ll finish mid January LOL got a fair bit of catching up to do. Now you may be wondering how come I’m so far behind, so close to the start – if thats the case the keep on reading.
Nano 2016 – Day 1
So its the big day where all across the world writers and frantically typing away at the beginnings of their novel. 50K in 30 days, easy peasy. Ok I jest, so not easy let alone peasy.
NaNoWriMo – I may have a plan
OK so Its a few days before NaNoWriMo starts. I’m not organised, don’t have plan and thats ok as, this close to the start of November I never feel ready. One thing I do know however is I plan on being a Nano Rebel and writing several short stories to reach the magic 50K number of words instead of a complete novel. This means I need some ideas for stories, at least 5 x 10K horror stories.
NanoWrimo – Getting Started
Back in 2012 I was a novice writer and had discovered a great bunch of other aspiring writers who shared my passion for the written word. Though not all of them were horror fans, in fact I found myself in the minority. It didn’t stop me or them from connecting and introducing me to the wonderful world of shared writing.
