Today is All Saints Day. It’s the first day of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). And it’s also the day I am drawing the winners for my giveaway.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everyone who stopped to comment, and anyone who shared this post with friends. It was good to chat with a few people in the comments section.
I make a list of all the entrants. I write all their names on pieces of paper which I fold in half. Gemma-Rose finds a hat. In go the names. We stir and stir. Gemma-Rose closes her eyes and draws a name. We stir some more. Another name. More stirring. A third name.
The winners are…
The winners are…
Gina, Lisa and Natalie.
I am sure you will all enjoy Kari Burke’s novel, The Life I Dreamed. Please let me know the email address you would like your Kindle book addressed to. If you send me a comment with your details, I won’t publish it. Or you could email me. Thank you!
If anyone would like to buy a copy of The Life I Dreamed, it’s available as a paperback or Kindle ebook from Amazon.
Kari blogs at Overflow if you’d like to stop by and say hello.
As I said, it’s the first day of NaNoWriMo. I am attempting to write another novel of at least 50 000 words during November. I’ve been looking forward to this day for a long time. I have my novel all planned out. I thought I’d get up this morning and start writing straight-away. Instead I found myself putting off the moment I typed in the first word. I found a dozen other very important things that just had to be done first… like redesigning my blog.
“Hey, girls! Do you like my new blog header?” I asked.
“Mum! You’re supposed to be writing your novel,” they admonished me.
Why is it so hard to begin a new writing project? Anyway, after the girls told me I couldn’t have lunch until I’d written a reasonable amount of words, I plunged in and began. It’s like jumping into a swimming pool. Now the shock is over, I am enjoying myself. I am now caught up in my fictional family’s adventures. It’s hard to think of anything else.
“Mum, are you listening?”
No, I’m not. I’m in Abbey Creek, the home of my characters, and I guess I‘ll be there until the end of November. I hope to write some blog posts too. But if you pop in and find my blog deserted, you know where I am: at my computer writing a novel.
I hope all my fellow NaNoWriMo writers get off to a good start. And I hope everyone has a wonderful All Saints Day.
And now it's back to work... 2 317 words written. Only 47 683 words to go...
