Have registered for this year's NaNoWriMo so I can get ahead with the second novel in my middle grade/ya trilogy. I've made plenty of notes and aim to get the majority of the first draft complete by the end of the month.
To start getting the word about my novel 'out there' I've entered The Caledonia Novel Award. The closing date was midnight on 2nd November and, typically, was working on the synopsis late that night. My computer went on a go slow just as my entry was loading onto the email and I managed to get it emailed over with less than ten minutes to spare .. phew
