Well hello there! I have been missing my blog during NaNoWriMo, I look forward to getting back into it properly when this is all over.
I am a little bit behind, by ‘a little bit’, I mean 8000 words behind. I had a couple of busy weekends where I wrote nothing and things have slipped a bit. But I am currently on 20665 words which I am pretty proud of. I would love to reach the target, but I have written a lot more than I usually would have anyway. R is away for a few days this week and the weekend so I may shut myself away in an attempt to catch up a bit.
I am liking my story so far. It is, quite unimaginatively, about a girl who has just graduated from university, but her circumstances do differ from mine! I have also decided to give her an interest in Philosophy so I now have to do some research on that. Did you know that Pythagoras admired beans and would refuse to eat them?!
Anyway, some really good books are slightly autobiographical, I am going to go with it. I feel like there are not many things out there that paint the weirdness that is your early 20’s in a terribly realistic light, i.e., it is nothing like Friends. Who knew?
I am plodding away and have a vague idea of where I am going to finish it. I have no idea whether I will try and show anyone/publish it. We will see how the editing goes, which I sense will probably be harder than the writing any old rubbish that comes into my head that I am doing now.
We will worry about that when the time comes, though.
