the story so far…

Yes, it’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo for short, or even better – Nano!) I participated last year and enjoyed it so much that I am back for more gruelling word counting. Besides, having completed my 50,000 words last year, I found I had only written half my novel, so I am back to do the other half this year. The coffee is weighimg the cupboard down, the pencils are sharpened (so to speak, but I use the computer most of the time) and I am raring to go. It all kicks off on November 1st and finishes at midnight on November 30th, so wish me luck and good luck to everyone who participates.

Those who are interested will be able to keep track of my progress via the widgets in the sidebar.

One of my Swap-bot groups held a Nano Mascot swap. This was my effort. My swap-partner loves owls so I made my first piece of amigurumi, added a relevant quote, and my mascot turned out like this!

My swap partner has just receieved him and says she loves him, so I hope she finds him inspiring. I have not received my swap yet.

    Good luck with NaNoWriMo! I’m doing NaNo, too, and so far, so good. : )

    I *love* the owl you made, it’s absolutely adorable, and I *love* the accompanying quote! What a nice idea.
