What is NaNoWriMo?
It’s actually an international event now, and has been for some years, but the name hasn’t changed.
The official website is here.
Done NaNoWriMo before?
I’ve done NaNoWriMo three times now. 2015 was my fourth attempt.
My first completed effort was just over 50,000 words. It was a fantasy fiction for young adults, titled EarthWitch.
My second effort in 2011 was a fantasy fiction for young adults, entitled Vortex.
My third novel in 2013 was a very novel. No, I won’t be uploading it here! It made the word count, so I technically “won” the NaNo that year, but it was quite disgusting and won’t ever see the light of day I hope!
In 2015, I returned to fiction for young adults, with “Brigandeers” – a novel about superheroes. Follow the links to read the novel. I’ve retained the last chapter as usual. The full version will be available on Amazon shortly.
What is posted on this blog?
What you see here are draft version of the final books. Final versions are available for purchase through Amazon.
Sit back and enjoy the ride. Not much will happen at this site apart from each November in years I choose to attempt NaNo. In Novembers when I’m running NaNo, you’ll see chapters appearing daily.
Feeback is extremely welcome, and as the novel will be written as you read it, your feedback can affect the plot and development of characters as a whole. The more you say, the more input you have.
