Oops, I did it again

Once again, I’m going to go public with this. That way, I leave myself no way out, no way to wriggle away from doing what I have set out to do, no way of avoiding the challenge, the self-doubt and any other negative emotions that are sure to beset me.

Here goes.

For the fifth consecutive year, I shall write the first draft of a novel this November during NaNoWriMo.

There. I’ve said it. Now I have to do it. Thirty days, fifty thousand words.

Will this interfere with other stuff? Of course it will. But you can’t make an omelette without breaking a few eggs!

This year’s effort is the concluding (I think) part of the Hannice Knight trilogy. Part one, Knight & Deigh (which I wrote for NaNoWriMo 2014), has already been serialised on this site and part two, A Bump in the Knight (NaNoWriMo 2016) is the current Sunday serialisation. Stand by for part three, Knight after Knight

Don’t ask me what’s going to happen, though – I shan’t have any idea until I start writing it! And I’m expecting some surprises as it develops during the month.

      Thanks, John. The first two parts were written for NaNoWriMo, and although I had the start of the first part (a retelling of some excerpts of The Orphans), the second started on 1 November as a Scrivener file containing nothing more than character sketches of the leading players. This one will be no different and thus no less challenging.
