Dreaded Lurgies! Lynn Huggins-Cooper
This will be a short blog post, as I have been ambushed by The Dreaded Lurgies. Full-on flu. It's filling my head with fluff, so my writing has ground to a halt. I have snuggled down by the fire, lit for the first time this year, today.
I have to get myself in gear though. I have a Halloween birthday and wedding anniversary to hopefully still enjoy - and then on 1st November, I have committed to NanoWrimo. I have been taking part for ten years now. In case you haven't heard of it, NanoWrimo is a special challenge, where participants undertake to write a novel in a month. 50,000 words. It sounds like a lot, but only breaks down into 1,677 words a day. That can be done in one chunk (I do this - getting up early and writing 'til it's done) but can also be shoe-horned into a day's activities - lunch and coffee breaks; in the evening - you get to choose.
Just think - by the time you read my next blog, we could both have a new novel in first draft. Are you with me? See you on the other side!
