Please turn over your papers, pick up your pens (or fire up your computers) and begin!
NaNoWriMo 2016 has officially begun... in Australia it began a few hours ago... and in the USA it starts in a few hours.
But here in the UK it starts NOW! (Of course if you are reading this in a couple of months time, well it's all over and done with - 1st drafts are sat fermenting all over the world!)
I am not taking part this year as I'm still working on ideas and outlines at the moment - I'm not quite sure where the end of the story is going to be. And I've learnt from past experience that if I don't know where I'm heading with a story, I easily get lost or bogged down.
But good luck to all of you NaNoWriMoers out there who are taking part.
May the muses and the plot bunnies be with you. And may your pen never run out of ink or your computer out of power! :)
