Not writing. A good thing?


After completing the awesome NaNoWriMo last month I’ve decided to take a break from novel writing for a week or two. This is to recharge the batteries a bit and help my back and, for some reason, left bum cheek get back to normal. I’m informed this is what can happen from not having a comfortable seat to sit on or from sitting for too long. Never mind.

It’s been good so far not writing. I didn’t think I’d like it but I know when I start to write again and finish the novel NaNoWriMo helped me start I’ll get right back into it. This break has been a welcome surprise so far. It has allowed me to mull over some ideas for the novel I’m writing and others that I’ve got to finish. Leaves me lots to do when I start to novel write again.

I also received an email stating I’ll be able to get NaNoWriMo winners only offers from tomorrow onwards. I wonder what they’ll have in store. And I now have something else to mull over.




It’s come to an end.


So for the last thirty days(ish) I’ve been taking part in the glorious NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) challenge. It was hard in some parts but I managed to come up with a system. That system was to write 500 words at a time and take twenty minute breaks in between. It makes writing 2000 words a day seem a lot easier. The results of using said system were……

I completed 50,000 words in one month and bought a t-shirt to celebrate!

Now, I got a bit giddy upon seeing the ‘Winner’ title above my name and that’s why I bought the t-shirt but I don’t think it’s too geeky. Well, if it is I’m not bothered anyway. I’m proud of what I’ve done but I just hope an American size medium t-shirt fits me.

The novel is still a few chapters of the end and I’ll be posting some of it at some point. If you’ve ever wanted to write a novel, I suggest you sign up for NaNoWriMo 2013. We won’t regret it.
