INKSPILL: On NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month)

Standard

I am still undecided on whether I am attempting NaNoWriMo 2014 or not yet, if I do it will be to work on short stories, several of them.

In 2013, when I started writing again, I discovered NaNo in early Spring and was gutted I had to wait until Autumn. I took part in both the Camp NaNoWriMo Spring and Summer – produced 50K on a non-fiction book which is writing in progress and currently somewhere beyond 90K words, I worked on a series of short stories for the summer camp, by the real event in November I was primed and ready and created half a novel that I haven’t touched it since.

What I did do successfully, was blog. Just in case you know nothing of this month of madness have a look HERE

Here are links to archive posts for any of you considering locking yourself in for November and writing until your head hurts!
