No, not Movember....but NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month. I have to confess its the first year I've actually taken part. I'm planning to use this month to get cracking on the sequel to my YA novel 'Unconditional' which I'm calling 'Unbreakable' to be followed by 'Untouchable' next year. Each part of the trilogy follows the love story of one of three friends, and 'Unbreakable' is Rianne's story. Unlike the virginal history buff Ashley, heroine of 'Unconditional' Rianne is a teenage mother with a dark past, who finds herself caught between the sexy but dangerous Heath and reliable Mitch. I'm really excited about this story, but because it contains some darker elements which draw on similar experiences of my own, I've been struggling to get started. So I'm going to throw myself in to NaNoWriMo and 'just do it!'
NaNoWriMo isn't just for professional/published authors but for anyone with a story in them - which pretty much means all of us. Go to to sign up and join in the fun!
