NaNoWriMo Update: 11th-23rd November

Howdy folks! How is your November treating you? The UK ha suddenly turned super icky, it’s cold, it’s wet, it’s windy, the leaves are all down, and blankets and jumpers are a must at all times. It’s not pleasant. November has been a bit of a weird one for me. On one hand it’s been great, I’ve celebrated my birthday and Thanksgiving, I visited Disney in. Florida for the first 8 days and London for a couple too, and I’m doing NaNo, but on the other hand I have no money, my back is really playing up again and causing me a lot of pain, and I am in a reading and blogging rut/slump.

So, this year, I have decided to think about 2 wildly different concepts in the hope of making decisions, plotting, knowing my characters, and ultimately learning to write, and I am tracking my progress through the NaNoWriMo website and a twitter thread.

NaNoWriMo 2018

Hello ladies and gentleman. You’ll never guess where I am writing this post! No, it’s not my living room, or my bedroom, or even on my lunch break, I’m on a plane, how cool is that huh? I am super excited that my holiday has finally arrived and that I am heading to Orlando for 2 weeks of sun, fun, and all things Disney. First things first though, I have a small announcement to make. I’m not really sure it’s very secret considering it’s in the title of the post, but if you missed it: I’m doing NaNoWriMo 2018! Continue reading “NaNoWriMo 2018”
