Novel Inspirations: Global Warming

Global Warming is one of the inspirations for my novel, although I had a little trouble deciding on the specifics. For the purposes of the story, I needed the Earth to be in dire straits with no chance of recovery thus forcing the population to look elsewhere for a...

Knuckle down time

As the title says, the time has come to stop making excuses not to edit my novel and knuckle down and get it done. My main problems are time, or a lack thereof, and perfectionism. The first I'm trying to get a grip of, as I have reduced the number of book edits I take...

So I did camp(nano)

I have very little time for writing, owing to the fact that most of my time is spent editing others works, but having promised a few writer friends that I would try to sort my manuscript out for publication, I have been making an effort to do just that. I signed up to...

Final Nanowrimo (2015) count

Although I completed my NaNoWriMo challenge on day fourteen with 51,056 words, I found I couldn't just stop writing, even though I had other things to be getting on with. So I didn't stop. I kept writing, deciding that while I was in the mood it would be a good idea...

Nanowrimo 2015 has arrived

So... Nanowrimo has arrived, and as per usual, it has taken me a couple of days to get into it. Not helped by the fact I was down London for a friend's 40th birthday party and didn't get home until the 2nd, but hey-ho, I'm on the case now. Having lost the majority of...

The first post is always the worst post

In November 2009 I discovered Nanowrimo - a worldwide writing challenge with one goal - write a complete novel with a minimum of 50,000 words, and so I did. I signed up, I wrote solidly for thirty days, and I completed my novel. I even did a little editing before...
