Well first the bad news. I always suspected that trying to do NaNoWriMo at the same time as another novel was a bridge too far and I was right. It wasn’t that I couldn’t do the word count, it was the simple fact that my plot for Dark Nights, Dirty City unravelled as I was typing it and I just got stuck. There was nowhere for the characters to go. So I gave up on that one. The good news is that I have nearly finished the first draft of Emily Swann and have just started writing the grand finale! Estimate that I am about 90% there with that one. At this rate I’ll be finished by the end of November which be be about four weeks ahead of schedule.
Have been completely forgetting to read a poem every day as well so need to get back to doing that. Because I’m not doing the NaNoWriMo thing anymore I will have time to do the blogging thing I’ve been meaning to do instead. Can’t say too much about that at the moment but all will be revealed in due course.
