NaNoWriMo - Days 1/2

What am I doing blogging when I should be nano-ing? Good question. I have absolutely no excuse today. Yesterday was different - DH seeking assistance with outdoor project that has waited weeks and is suddenly urgent. (Translation - I have weekend day free from motor racing commitments and know I'm in trouble if this is not finished by Christmas as promised.) And he's right! LOL

On the writing front. My Nano book is different from anything I've ever written before. The germ of an idea popped into my head while watching something completely unrelated on TV. It's a time shift between present day Melbourne and WWII London. I'm excited about the idea and I'm hoping I can make it work.

First, of course, I have to write it. Only 49,000 words to go!

Hey Fran,

By blogging about it, you're making yourself publicly accountable - that's what you're doing.

And blogging can be a warm-up exercise to the actual writing. So all is acceptable.

Your time shift idea sounds cool. Good luck with it!

Your story sounds great Tannia, and you've made a great start. And Diane's right, you're making yourself publicly accountable. And it's great to get others cheering you on. Go Tannia Go!!!

Just remember it's no longer 50,000!!
Good luck making the new idea work. I love it when you get a new idea and it just flows. Even if it scares you to death. LOL
