So I've decided that I need to focus and get my half-finished novel done and dusted...
It always seems such a shame to have so many words just sitting on the page doing nothing and it's been really bothering me lately. I actually started writing my novel ~ Forgiving Summer ~ back in 2010 (can it possibly have been that long?) with Nanowrimo and I made a really good start. Since then I've had random blasts of working on it, but then there . is . always . something . else . taking . my . time . in . life... but anyway, so far I have managed to get about 35,000 words down and I am so desperate to get it finished. Often I will read through all I have written so far to re-acquaint myself with the characters and place, but by the time I actually get to working on it, I have to re-read it again... and so the cycle goes.
Anyway, after by chance seeing a tweet from a fellow writer about Nanowrimo2017 I knew the time had come - enough is enough! so for the rest of November I'm going to be doing my very best to write - write - write ... my approach will be to bash anything out so that I have something to really work with by the end of the month. I'm excited to see what - if anything - happens...
