It’s been a little while since I’ve updated the blog. The good news is it’s because I’ve had my head down writing. Twenty-twenty-one has presented a number of new opportunities that will influencing my writing for the rest of the year.
A little over a year ago I decided to focus on getting my stories into print. I started by submitting a couple of drabbles to an open call anthology called Forgotten Ones from Eerie River Publishing. A year later I’ve been lucky enough to have dozens of stories accepted for publication and I’ve written up a summary of my year writing.
Back in November as part of NaNoWriMo I embarked on writing my first novel. A sci-fi epic about a veterinarian, working title All creatures, Space and All. In response to James Pyles call out on Facebook for writers to share their WIP during these interesting times I thought I’d provide a bit of insight into where I’m at and a bit of a sneak preview.
A big thanks to Peter Wyn Mosey for nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. If you haven’t checked out Peter’s site you really should he’s a hugely talented writer. While you’re at it be sure to check out The Finest Example creative collaboration project he’s just launched. It’s already got some brilliant eclectic contributions.
The last day of November and of NaNoWriMo and I’m amazed to say I managed to get it across the line with 50,545 words with hours to spare.
Three-quarters of the way through NaNoWriMo and dare I say it’s going well. I’ve Hit the 36k target and this week has been a little easier than the first fortnight.
Half-way through NaNoWriMo and by hook or by crook, I’ve hit the 25k target. Let’s just say it’s a been a week of ups and downs as shown by the daily word count.
One week into NaNoWriMo and dare I suggest it’s going okay. I spent most of October doing everything and anything to avoid planning.
I’ve decided to dive into the deep end and have a crack at this year’s National Novel Writing Month. If you haven’t come across it NaNoWriMo is a yearly community event to write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November.
