I decided to go on a virtual writer’s retreat, committing myself to writing 50,000 words in April. It’s part of the national Novel Writing Month challenge which takes place in November, but they run Camp NaNo in April, to keep people motivated. I didn’t realise but I could have challenged myself to write only 30,000 words in the thirty days of April… I guess as usual I didn’t read the small print!
April has been a lovely month as it has been Easer when we have our annual family holiday – it was a wonderful holiday, I love being with my cousins and their children and grandchildren and we were in beautiful Norfolk… but I didn’t manage to do much writing! So I had a huge catch-up when I got home.
I have I used Camp NaNo to get my teeth into my new story, Magick, a sequel to Radwinter… I’ve never written a sequel before so it has been a new challenge. All is going well but it’s going to be up to the wire! The last day of April and I still have a couple of thousand words to go… I’m sure I can do it.. I’m sure I can!
