Victory over the forces of darkness (NanoWrimo success, that is). . .
I’m delighted that I took part in NaNoWriMo this year, what a fabulous concept! It was well organised and the communications were inspiring and witty, with just the right balance of encouragement and humour. I’d recommend that you give it a go next year. And if you did give it a go this year, I’d encourage you to donate to the good folk at NaNo (if you haven’t already). I’ve been blown away by how much such a small group of people can achieve, and they need our support to keep it going.
I hit the 50,000 target and then some, but it really was the taking part that was the important bit (to roll out the cliche). Also, it fast tracked my next novel, the sequel to The Truth about Sharks and Pigeons. I now hope to have this out in the first half of 2013 (working title ‘The Punchline’).
