October has been an amazing month of birthdays, scary films, seeing friends and walking on the beach. This has been possible because it has also been a month of reading, researching and planning the new novel. But now the hard work is about to start. November is NaNoWriMo. It is a great opportunity to create a significant amount of raw material (50-60 thousand words) to get the novel off the ground. I am keen to start now. I feel like I have been standing on the edge of the swimming pool for a while now and it’s time to jump on in. So for the next few weeks, there will not be much time for anything apart from writing – and the day job of course. So I will be hibernating at my desk as much as possible. Gideon Osborne will be hibernating with me. Good luck to all the other Wrimos out there.
We will see you on the other side.
