How are your 2015 NaNoWriMo efforts going this year people? Already heading into the 10,000 word mark? Or, like me, are you struggling to churn anything out? Salmonweird is inching along at the moment, but I do have an excuse. This year, like last year, has presented me with another busy run up to year end.
I think it is always going to be this way; October-December will always be my busy time, it has been now for the third year on the trot, and that’s perfectly fine.
That’s not to say that I’ve done nothing with my WIP. On the contrary, it has inched along a little in the last few weeks but the major development is that I have come up with a sub plot that may eventually have its own spin off story. At first, when I came up with the premise, it was going to be another novella but now I’m not so sure as it doesn’t seem to have much distance on its own (as it presently stands). Yet it might if it is allowed to grow within the weird embrace of my WIP where it might pick up enough momentum to outgrow it.
I don’t want to say much at this stage, but it is to do with how the afterlife is managed by the powers that be. When I told my girlfriend, she said it “sounds the sort of thing Tom Holt would write” which aside from being a compliment is a good comparison.
Anyway, I will leave it there until I have a sample to post. I’m going to be away for the next few days. When I come back, I want updates from all of you, no excuses!
