Back on again with the novel!

After a bit of a drought, I am back on again with my novel all thanks to Camp NaNoWriMo! I have written over 1,000 words in the last 2 days and I feel confident that I can keep going. I have written over 73,000 words of my novel in total and was dreading writing the ending which is definitely in sight. I am just going to keep writing my 500 or so words a day until the end of term (I am a teacher) and then work really hard in the summer holidays to try and finish my first draft. I hope fellow campers/first novel writers are doing well and feel as inspired as I do.

It’s not been a very good writing week

It’s not been a very good writing week this week. I have become mired in internet sites advising me about all the things I need to beware of with self-publishing and as a result, have had no time left to write. I’ve realised that I’m getting ahead of myself and need to concentrate on my story now and spend less time worrying about what I’ll do when I’ve finished it. It is hard to keep focussed though, especially when I’m nearing the end of my story but getting comments on the beginning 😦 Anyway, hey ho, maybe I’ll get some writing done today.
