Nanowrimo !

How are other people who are participating in this?  I am using the Chris Baty book ‘No Plot No Problem’ which is pretty helpful. Anyone know of any other useful text to inspire you on this quest? I have written something and largely kept to my word count with endless cups of tea and biscuits. This is definitely a 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration task ! Anyone have any other texts or inspirational ideas for this?


Just reading ‘No Plot No Problem’ by Chris Baty for inspiration to start the above. I like the no nonsense style and the can do attitude.  Apparently, planning your story is usually an excuse for not getting on with it!  “If you spend enough time with your characters, plot simply happens.”

Any thoughts on this? I am not a great planner but just running with it seems a bit too free and left field…? I will let you know how I get on!

Nanowrimo starts today!

Anyone ever written a book using the inspiration of the National Novel Writing Month programme? I am signed up and ready to go. The book ‘No plot, no problem’ is full of inspirational ideas . Just wondering if anyone has tried it as it seems a bit of a tall order to complete a book within a month but I am going to give it a go. Any inspiration would be gladly received!

My new book on kindle. This is a romance/chiclit book about a city girl, Lucy going to rural Scotland to work after a failed romance. There she is employed to promote tourism. However,she does not get off to a good start with her boss the irascible Rory MacDonald. She does start to enjoy life though and meets up with the site manager, the personable Jed MacInnes. Then the past catches up with her and she finds she has to make a stark choice.
