Done!

Hands Typing Typewriter Ancient Retro Classic Keyboard I have just validated my novel. Yes 50,000 words written in a month. This is only the beginning of course and many cuts will have to be made – and maybe the story isn’t even any good.

Nevertheless a story exists now that did not before and now all that remains is to finish it… more words and edit; edit; edit.

After all as someone wise once said: ‘You can’t edit a blank page!’

Woo hoo!

I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.

Nanowrimo 2017 – Half Way

pexels-photo-261510 It has been more than a fortnight since I last posted. That is because I have been working on Nanowrimo.

Juggling my writing, work, housework, and food is not easy. This is part of the reason the washing up has rather piled up in the last few days, why my flat is even more of a mess, and why I had a wired meal just now of: steak, a bell pepper, and Doritos. I have to leave for work in about an hour so I really should snap to it – by it I mean washing up – met writing target for today.

The novel is going well. One of the chapters is at nearly 15,000 words. For the finished piece I’ll have to edit it to at least seven chapters. The point is it is going well. That is due, in a large part, to drawing inspiration from my own life. Write what you know. Am I write?

I have a week off next week so the target will be reached. Here’s to the final push!
