Well, as of today, my Camp NaNoWrimo word count is 4,625 and my goal is 10,000 by the end of July. Apparently, I have to write 448 words a day to meet this goal and whilst I may not make this daily goal (term doesn’t end till Wednesday and so my real life begins again on Thursday!), I am absolutely determined to meet my 10,000 words by 31 July.
I am finding that food and wine are helping me, along with lots of lovely music. At the moment, I am listening to Kirsty MacColl. When I listen to her music, I feel both amazed at her beautiful voice and yet so sad because her life was cut so tragically short. I even managed to fit Soho Square into my novel which I hope is a fitting tribute to a wonderful singer and an even lovelier person and mother.
I may have had too much wine tonight 🙂 I have also listened to and been inspired by, Roberta Flack singing ‘Killing me softly with his song’ today. I have listened to this song at least a million times in my life but it inspires me every time 🙂
And finally, I watched a TV documentary we had recorded about Wings and their Wings Across America tour. I loved The Beatles and I loved Wings too and just listening to that talent has inspired me to write more. I had a listen to John Lennon singing ‘Woman’ too, just for good measure. If only we could turn back time…
