Some of you may be aware that I’ve recently (last Thursday, the 13th) undergone a hernia operation and as a result will be off work for around a month or more. Now I could just sit at home and watch crappy daytime TV but I’ve decided to make more productive use of the time.
In 2012 I took part in the NaNoWriMo event – the National Novel Writing Month – where the aim is to write a minimum of 50,000 words in thirty days. That’s an average of just over 1,600 words a day, every day. I managed to complete it but it was a huge task and I chose not to take part in the 2013 challenge.
So, as I have to be home and fairly inactive I’ve decided to use the next thirty days as my own personal NaNoWriMo and get a minimum of 50,000 words down for the third and final part of The Emperor Initiative series – Tiberius Crowned. I’ve blocked out most of the story and will be starting the task tomorrow morning; the 17th.
I’ll let you know how I’m getting on.
