Where would writers be without chocolate and coffee?
This month is Nano November -- write 50,000 words in a month. Tansy has taken up the challenge with a new born and a preschooler. She's inspired me.
But I'm not so brave. I've decided to to a mini-nano. I'm aiming for 25,000 words in a month. My excuses?
All 6 children (plus an extra) still at home. (Will they never leave? Perhaps my husband and I should run away from home?).
Started new job, teaching at Qantm College. (Have discovered the joys of marking assignments. And you thought it was hard to write them!).
Volunteered to be on the Romance Writers of Australia Management Committee, then suggested I organise an EnVision type workshop for them. Am currently collected quotes for accommodation and finalising figures. (Why do I do this to myself? My problem is that I like a challenge).
Can't think of any other excuses.
I'm actually looking forward to immersing myself in my latest book project.
The ROR group was started in 2001 by Marianne and Rowena.
We meet every year or so to critique our manuscripts. We are united by a passion for the speculative fiction genre and the craft of writing. (And sharing good food and wine doesn't go amiss, either). www.ripping-ozzie-reads.com
