This kinda happened, although it was not the JuNoWriMo binge that I had hoped for.
This was partly because I spent ages prepping for the Birmingham Writers' Group summer competition, which I was judging this year. I may have gotten a little preoccupied designing funky infographics.
But fear not.
I managed to write 9,700 words of Nephos Part Three, which takes care of the prologue, and an additional 3,500 words of notes. The manuscript currently features Sheriff Zu confronting three masked robbers and it introduces a mome rath for the first time in the series. There is a long way to go but it is happening.
These last few days offered me another distraction. My author friends Heide Goody and Iain Grant are putting together a Christmas anthology. The submission deadline is today and I had just a couple of days to produce something...
At the time of writing, my Christmas story is 60% complete. It is about a young boy, Nicholas Partridge, who refuses to climb down from the Christmas Tree in Victoria Square until his Dad comes to get him. I have called it A Partridge in a Tree. I need to get it done very soon but it is hard writing about Christmas in the warm muggy summertime.
In other news, Heide and Iain have got a new book coming out, Oddjobs, although I am resisting that until Nephos Part Three is finished. That should keep me motivated.
Anyway, back to my Moleskine and Word.
