Instead of silently slipping into the world of NaNoWrimo (National Novel Writing Month) while simultaneously doing the 100 Day Book (The Write Practice’s book-writing in 100 days), which means that I am on a sort of writing sprints for the first drafts of TWO projects—okay, novels—and will not have much time for much else, and…… Continue reading Writing takes centre stage
