November Novel



Yes, I know it's not even October, but I've decided to give myself the proverbial kick up the backside and enter NaNoWriMo, write a novel in a month. Easy, if I didn't need to work, eat or sleep.

So why do it? Well, I finished Girl In The Box and sent it off to suggested agents, only two were kind but not interested, one was very enthusiastic and interested, but couldn't represent me due to a conflict of interest (maybe that is agent speak for 'I'm not interested'?) and one is pending.
That's life after a writing MA - Pending.
You have to move on, hence the short story workshops, the social media connections with other writers and the idea to write a novel in a month. I've got the setting, I've got the main character, now I need to do some hasty research and just write. Anyone out there care to join me?

I'll let you know how I get on!
