National Novel Writing Month is with us again. November – the month to write 50,000 words of brand spanking new NOVEL in a month. No break in flow, don’t worry about over-thinking, over-editing and over-tiredness. I know of a crime fiction writer who got her first book deal from a book she wrote in this scheme last november. Well done you girl. I think it’s a real adventure! Will I try it? YES. I think I’ll make my own rules though… check for more info. As William Faulkner said – ‘Don’t be a writer, be writing’. See you in December….

      All I can say if no best seller emerges (!?!) it may be good therapy. Keep that pen moving!

      Thanks Elizabeth, I’ve always found it easier to write to a deadline set by someone else. I hope to train myself out of that need, but until then I have to hunt down offers of deadlines!
