Having spent the whole month of November ensconced with my laptop writing the draft of my novel A Shape on the Air, I managed to win the NaNoWriMo challenge on the final day. Phew. What a great motivator NaNo is every year. It helps me to get ahead before the Christmas season when all goes haywire. I wrote my 50,000 words and will now edit and revise until it’s a book ready to go to my publishers. It’s a time-slip present day to early medieval times (Dark Ages) romance and I’m having great fun writing it.
Somehow I’ve also managed to have a few days in London at the RNA winter party and the Society of Authors AGM, panel discussion and party. I got to the golf club dinner dance and the Warwickshire county golf annual dinner, two RNA chapter lunches, had weekend visitors, supervised two doctoral vivas and a mini-viva, and helped my daughter with her Masters dissertation which is about to be submitted! Phew times 100.
So November has probably been the busiest month of 2015. Now to prepare for Christmas and all the pre-season busy-ness! I wonder what you are all doing! Happy December! x
