Gerald Meets Valina

I’m attempting to write 50,000 words of a novel for Nanowrimo. I’ve written 31,000 so far and have 6 days left. It’s difficult to find time to write. Last night, I went to bed at 10pm but got up at 3.30am and wrote for a couple of hours on the computer, before returning to bed. Is that insomnia or madness?

Sometimes, I make cartoons to illustrate the book. Here’s one I made yesterday. All the characters here are vampires.

Well, it’s that time of year again: November. This is when wannabe writers worldwide decide to write a 50,000 word novel in 30days, via the Nanowrimo web site.

To be honest, I have so many unfinished novels that I can’t justify starting another one this year. Yesterday, I wrote a list of all my works in progress, and they number at least 15, including the vampire book I started during the last two campnanos and the fantasy novel I began in 2013 and its prequel from 2014. These last two are 127,000 words and 87,000 words long respectively, and I still haven’t reached The End!

However, I am going to try and finish writing and editing these books for Nanowrimo and then I can start something new in December.

This is the cover for my Vampire book.



Here is an instalment of my cartoon about a vampire named Gerald. I’m writing this as a novel for Campnano July 2016.

Prudence With Ribbon and Hat

I procrastinated this afternoon whilst editing and rewriting my book, and this is the result.

I used a mouse on my PC laptop to draw a character from my book. I emailed it to myself and used my Android tablet to add the title and my signature.

As you can see, Prudence is a magician.

Are you writing a book, and do you draw your characters?
