NaNoWriMo is here again! Those of you who were reading around this time last year probably remember this annual period of self-inflicted crazy, and I know some of you are also taking part yourselves.
<<< watch my wordcount creep up!
I beat my target word count on Monday, which is always a good start, but I have a hectic week so I'm not quite sure how it's going to go from here... wish me luck!
This year I'm using my NaNo time to add 50,000 words (or more) to the first draft of Revolution, the second novel in my fantasy series Chronicles of Charanthe. That means I have a civil war to start before the end of the month... so I hope you'll excuse me if I seem even busier than usual! But there will be blog posts that aren't about writing - including that stew recipe I promised you, and even a short holiday to France later in the month.
I have a growing stack of books on topics I think I'm going to need to research, but personal experience is better, so if anyone wants to tell me stories about pregnancy or giving birth without drugs then please drop me a line or leave a comment and I'll be in touch...
