NaNoWriMo 2012 – Here We Go!

It is finally here! NaNoWriMo, that magical month of writing abandon that has haunted and taunted me, always lingering somewhere in the back of my conscious mind, always whispering that it would be here soon and I had better get my affairs in order. Well, November is here, and I missed the first day. Oh dear!

It wasn’t my fault, honest. My best friend procured free tickets to a local theme park, and the season closes this weekend. They had a special Halloween entertainment package, and I hadn’t experienced it since I worked there several years ago. We had to participate. So, I allowed myself one more day off, and today I intend to get stuck in. I will write double the daily quota of words for NaNoWriMo. I will. I definitely will…


So, I have sat down in front of the computer with my daughter safely in bed where she will (hopefully) sleep for another hour. The dog is curled up on the sofa and won’t demand his walk until later in the day. I am distraction-free. The moment has come. I stare at a blank page. The unwritten words taunt me. They whisper to me, but I can’t hear them. Where do I begin? How do I start? I am about to write yet another masterpiece, but I cannot form even the first sentence. This is not looking good.

I will not give up. I will not be defeated. I succeeded in NaNoWriMo 2011, and I will damn sure do the same with NaNoWriMo 2012. At least I have a story. Now all I need to do is call on my Muse, tempt her out of hiding, and let my fingers do the talking… See you on the other side folks!

    Good luck. Fortunately poets do not have quite the same issues. Caught your radio broadcast and thought you kept the chat on track very well. The presenter seemed to be a bit under researched but I guess the whole thing was put in her lap that morning. All the same it is quite an ordeal to be on the end of questions for 25 minutes and I was very impressed.

    I’ve sat looking at the blank page and I was only going to write a post!

    Good luck and remember how much I admire you for even the first letter, which – given the fact I have no understanding of how to write a book – could indeed be the hardest part, I don’t know.

    • Aww, thanks Elaine! I must admit this time round I struggled with the beginning. I was actually starting to get a little anxious. I have a very vague storyline (Vampire in Blackpool), and my Muse is very slowly waking up after taking a month off… But I am sure it will all come together beautifully, it always does!
