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.

This comic strip has taken ages to do today. I used some Android apps on my tablet. When it uploaded, the comic was tiny and illegible. I’ve had to redo it twice. I hope it works this time.

It’s a kind of storyboard for a book I’m writing about Vampires.
