Just to make a commitment that, although not joining in NaNoWriMo (50k words in November), I plan to write 1,000 words of my novel for children each day of the month. This would more or less complete it, should the work go well. The plot was sorted a while back, though by today (end of 2nd day) I already see flaws in it and have changed relationships, events etc. 2,100 words and counting!
Good luck to our local writers who are taking up the challenge. Notes to be exchanged this Friday at Southampton Writing Buddies meeting.
