December Intentions

It seems that every month as I write this pre-Month blog post, I speak of the difficulty the previous month was and all the intentions that I failed to achieve. This time, a positive recounting of the month is ahead including an amazing NaNo.

NaNoWriMo

50 000 words. 30 days. 1700 average words a day. A task that may seem gargantuan on the 1st of November and looking back you wonder how you managed (or did not).

This year I am proud to say I wrote my 50 000 words, thus making me a NaNo Winner and that was a whole week ago.  This was all possible through the massive support of my local NaNo writers who are affectionately known as the Jozi Wrimos, the supportive Write-Ins and doggedly writing during the unearthly hours of midnight and 2AM.

My novel this year is a Southern African Historical Fantasy Fiction combining African mythology and superstition with magic.

Book List

For November, due to NaNo and other things, I only purposed to read one book which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed.

Sir Terry Pratchett: The Colour of Magic (Discworld series)

For December I plan to read at least four books, one a week.

  1. The Harvest Man – Alex Grecian
  2. The Well – Catherine Chanter
  3. Hollow City – Ransom Riggs
  4. Library of Souls – Ransom Riggs

I will also be continuing the Friday Fictions continuing to refine my writing.

So drop by and journey with me through the intricacies of life, writing and reading.

  1. Congrats on winning NaNo! Today is the last day and I still have 4k more words to go. I was doing so well at the beginning of the month, but then I got sick and the holidays came and then I went on vacation… It’s been a lot, lol.

    • Lol come on Rache you got this, you’re so close and you have a full day to write bit by bit until you hit that magic 50K! Remember, you can sleep tomorrow 😛 haha. But really though I’m pretty sure I will be reading a “Barely Made It” kind of post from you tomorrow… yes?
