Getting There

Hey folks, it’s time for that Friday NaNoWriMo report. Things have been going really good so I took the day off to go to the city for some shopping. Silly me, I wasn’t aware that the madness that grips Americans on what they call Black Friday had infected my fellow Canadians. Dear gods, I haven’t seen traffic like that since I was last in downtown Vancouver on a Friday afternoon before Christmas. It’s enough to give a gopher the heartburn.

What? Huh? Oh yeah, the NaNo progress report. Well, after many days of this:

I have now crossed the 48000 word mark for November. I should finish Assassin 
with time to spare. Read this much of it for free here.
Folks, thanks for keeping tabs on me and for cheering me on, it truly is appreciated. For all of you who are doing the NaNo too, I hope you’re way ahead of me and smoking.

Playing Catch-up

A personal NaNoWriMo update.

I can’t help it; I love a challenge, perhaps too much. I was ill for weeks in October, and just starting to feel better when I got the brilliant idea to sign on for NaNoWriMo.  Okay, easy enough, just click a few buttons, blab to your friends, and away you go. There was just one problem. I had no idea what to write about, then a friend told me it is okay to start in the middle, just write 50K words or more. Bingo.

Last year in NaNo I wrote the novel Novan Witch. It has since been published. Find it here:



I got a lot of feedback that it would make a great series and I did start the sequel, but put it aside for another project. So, for Nano this year I have pulled out the sequel with plans to finish the first draft. I start NaNo at 32K and will shoot for 85K to call it a win. Here’s the working cover, but it may not be the final version.
You can follow the link to download the work in progress from Smashwords. It’s free. It’s listed as Assassin’s Revenge on Smashwords, but again it will not be the final title.
So, let me know what you think and how you’re doing on NaNo or if you’re just cheering the rest of us silly fools on.
