Yep! It’s Friday. There’s nothing exciting about writing and it being Friday. I write during the day, the evening and the night, but not continuously you understand. I write when the brain tells me to. The characters in my novel are keeping me up at night, again, that’s part of being a writer. You can’t just switch off once you close the computer down.

I had an enjoyable time at Southwold Library on Wednesday, facilitating the NaNoWriMo writing group there.

It’s been a busy few days, not only writing my novel for NaNoWriMo but also finishing writing some workbooks and okaying their covers. An exciting time but it has used a lot of my time.

My lovely cat has been keeping my company.

I can’t stay long as here as I have been writing most of the day and need to give the ole eyes a rest.

I need food, energetic food not this…

Three days of #NaNoWriMo


Writing the first 300 or so words was relatively easy, but keeping going wasn’t. I was distracted a few times and also got a little tired staring at the screen.

It looked lovely outside and I decided to cut the lawn. Fresh air and a bit of exercise was good. It gave me time to switch off, albeit for a short while.

In between writing and eating I wrote 1, 840 words. I stopped at a very exciting point in the novel as I knew this would encourage me back to it.


A lovely cycle ride and lunch with friends.

Then back to writing… really looked forward to getting back to it and carrying on with the story. Armed with snacks and treats I booted up the laptop and continued typing.

I stopped when my eyes began to sting.


Woke up early to get some words written. Been focused and not allowed myself Facebook and Twitter until I had finished writing.  I’ve now written 6,105 words and am pleased with my progress.

Today is the 1st November 2014 and for writers all across the world, it is #NanoWrimo time. This is a great annual novel writing project that brings together professional and amateur writers from all over the world. For more information log in to: http://nanowrimo.org/

This is my first time of supporting and also writing #NanoWrimo.

I am delighted to be supporting #NanoWrimo writers at Southwold Library in Suffolk  each Wednesday during this month.



I have started writing my 50 thousand word novel today. 50 thousand words sounds a lot and could cause me some stress [I don’t do stress]. So, I’m not going to refer to that amount until the 30th Nov when I announce I have written that amount. However, I will try and update my blog daily or every few days to let you know how I am getting on.

I have other writing projects on the go and I will try and be disciplined and give time to each one.

Yesterday I was editing one of my writing projects at this lovely Art Gallery called The Coconut Loft.

Back to today…

This is my memory stick that will house my NaNoWriMo writing. My other writing projects will stay on my other memory stick [and both will be backed up regularly onto the computer].

A big shout-out to all fellow #NaNoWriMo writers both locally and across the world.

That’s all from me for now, catch you later. Suzan
