I signed up for NaNoWriMo but it’s already obvious I won’t be getting far with it. It was a tad overoptimistic on my side since I knew I had a couple of non-fiction projects to finish and which took priority. And various rooms in the house have reached critical mess and urgently need dealing with. So NaNoWriMo has become NaHoTiMo for me – National House Tidying Month. I shall defer my novel in a month endeavour until January, my NaJaWriMo. The immediate advantage there is that January has 31 days in it – 1 more than November – and also only one national holiday in it here in France, as opposed to two. Also the weather will be a darn sight worse and it will be much easier to be indoors writing.
I’ll still do some fiction writing though – plenty of ideas bubbling around in my head.
OK, sales update time. I’ve fed the new figures into the bar chart on the right. Here’s a summary:
