CampNaNo 2020 week 1 update

Thursday, July 9th, 2020

The story I am working on is several ideas I’ve been having for years all kind of merged together, it is primarily being written for my youngest with their input so I suppose it is actually a combined effort. I have so far managed the prologue and first chapter with most of the second chapters […]

Camp NaNo 2020 – eep and ARG!!!!

Thursday, July 2nd, 2020

I started June thinking I would plan my Camp NaNo – I was after all feeling a lot better and had even been out gardening but then on May the 16th I started to get little heart twinges and then my reactive arthritis came back – I have not suffered with it in yrs. On […]

Stay At Home NaNo

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

Back blogged from my diary NaNoWriMo are kind of doing an extended writing challenge for the duration of lockdown. I am unable to really take part in this but am having the most amazing dreams – starting with the fever dreams and then swooshing into the nasty pain killer variety. There are a tangle of […]

A NaNo New Start

Thursday, April 2nd, 2020

(from my diary – back blogged) Last year was my tenth yr of NaNoWriMo and I thought that I would be launching the Punk’s Universe properly – I was working hard on the website and so on but then Covid hit and well… to be honest it is just all a little too close to […]

July Camp Nano – 2019

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

Many things have happened over the last few months including my dad dying in March – I made a vague attempt at Camp Nano in April resulting in about 30, 000 words being written – mainly due to the fact I wasn’t sleeping. I haven’t written anything that wasn’t basically some sort of press release […]

NaNo Begins! 2016

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Last night I was running around scare acting, I did not get in until late, it’s a seasonal job, it is fab and great… I got to think on plots and character building during the down times – standing in misty fields watching sickle moons rising in bloody orange hues. So first thing I needed […]

Camp Nano Survival

Friday, July 18th, 2014

We are just over half way through this months writing challenge and I am not doing as well as I would like. I have written 8000 words so far, scattered across two novels and a flash fiction. I am hoping to break the 10 K barrier today though obviously I have side tracked myself into […]

20 hours to go….

Monday, June 30th, 2014

And July is almost here and I am EXCITED! I thought I’d work out exactly what I will be working on fro Camp Nanowrimo. As I have a tight schedule for the comic book I might have to give that priority – it is all already written so that is all drawing and digitazing and […]

Camp Nanowrimo

Sunday, June 29th, 2014

As July is almost here I thought I would announce that I’ll be taking part in Camp Nanowrimo – it is a more laid back version of National Novel Writing Month that occurs in November. I have signed up and been allocated a cabin with writers I know from Bristol – the cabin structure of […]
