Well I have been very quiet of late I'm afraid, usual life things invading my writing time - building works, husbands 40ths (yes, he had 2 like the queen), kids etc etc but now I am really throwing myself into it. I have registered for Nanowrimo

I know!!!

I have never really looked into this properly but it kind of struck me as the literary equivalent of 60 minute makeover. Still, the combination of a) building work on the house starting this week and being VERY noisy (who knew) and b) a friends chance status on facebook deliberating entering have resulted in me deciding to knock out a novel in a month. I figure if I'm taking refuge from the noise and dust in coffee shops and libraries around town then I might as well put the free wifi to good use?

To put this into some perspective, I have been planning a food blog for some months (I felt like I wanted to split the writing/health & fitness aspects of this blog) and have been contemplating a name for over 2 months now.

I couldn't write 3 words in 2 months, and now I am planning over 2000 a day. The mind boggles. Well, enough talking about it - I need to get cracking on the novel. Did I mention that I don't have a plan or idea yet??

Good luck to any others entering the madness this month - I will keep you posted - if my fingers don't fall off first.


  1. ahem...i didn't even know that you had a blog! now i do, i'll be able to enjoy even more of your natural hilarity. :)
    so pleased you're doing 'wrimo! can't wait to hear your thoughts (in december) about the whole thing. x

  2. Ah thanks Kat, I can't quite believe I have signed up. Anyone who regularly reads this blog (I think there are 2 of them ;-)) will know how absolutely rubbish I am at sticking to anything. This is supposed to be my yar of writing and I have managed 2 competitions and 1.5 assignments. Still, a novel should totally make up for that, right?!?!

    It is completely and utterly thanks to you that I am in this position and I will be sure to let you know in December how that has worked out!! Glad we can be buddies on the way buddy - good luck xx
