NaNoWriMo – Day 3

For this year's NaNoWriMo pics, I have interesting pictures of interesting novelists. Here's a portrait of Emily Brontë painted by her brother.

November is here again!

Are you all working hard on your novels? I was unlucky enough to be working for the first two days this year; if you check my stats so far you’ll see I haven’t even hit 1.6k yet. Terrible, I know, but everything else is done today so I’ll be making some good progress this evening. My hope is to get a good 2k down every day until I’m back to work on Saturday. That should push my averages ahead.

If you want to follow my progress, feel free to add me on the NaNoWriMo site here: http://nanowrimo.org/participants/illogicology

While it has been a slow start this year, I’m finally working on an idea I’ve been kicking around since last year. It’s a sci-fi / horror yarn, that I’m hoping will have a little bit of a B-Movie vibe without being too corny. It stars a certain literary mad-scientist often mixed up with his creation, but I’m hoping to put my own spin on it. I’m having a lot of fun with it, which helps when you’re working on such a high pressure project.

I’m also celebrating NaNoWriMo with another big book freebie, so you can grab some free reads for your kindle for the next couple of days.

Meanwhile, my new book launched yesterday and I’m eagerly waiting for the first reviews. Check it out, and let me know what you think.

That’s all for now, I’ll have more updates later in the month.
