Shhh... I'm Writing!

So Halloween is over, my giveaway is done and dusted, and the prizes are going in the post today. I have gone quiet on my blog, you may be wondering... well there is a reason! Mainly because of last month being so busy I really didn't get much WitchLove writing done so this month I have decided to join NaNoWriMo... Crazy I know! 50,000 words in a month... balmy!
 Participant 180x180 (2)
So those of you who haven't heard of NaNoWriMo basically it means loads of writers join up and pledge to try and write a 50k word novel in a month. My Novels are about 70k, but as I already had 25k done I had about 50000 left to write which is perfect! There are forums and regional coffee meet-ups to keep you motivated. I haven't been to a meet/ write-up because I'm not sure how much writing I'd get done! But so far it is working. I worked out that I needed to write 2000 words a day, every day for the month (with weekends off to be with family). It doesn't sound too bad but with other commitments and insomnia raging 2000 words today is proving tricky! So far I've done 1000 and I am helping in school this afternoon!

The good news is that with some luck WitchLove will be completed (in first draft stage) by the end of the month. Which means I can do a read through before Christmas and get it to my proof readers and Beta readers in January.

I know some of you want it sooner... so maybe as a treat I'll blog a chapter excerpt soon. So tell me would you like to read about Jess in Manchester after the explosion or would you like to read about Jess in America meeting her family coven??? And if you want to keep an eye on the novel's progress check out the word count widget on the main page!

Keep tuned!
