Na-Nu, NaNo-NaNo

This year’s National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is almost half-way. How’s your magnum opus going? Keeping up to the 1,500 words per day you need to make the 50,000 mark by the end of the month?

At midnight on Hallowe’en, when non-writers were tricking or treating, writers were scribbling the first words of their new novel, fired up in a frenzy to make the deadline as a NaNo winner this year.

NaNoWriMoNaNoWriMo is free to use and full of great inspiration, tips, advice, bottom-kicking posts, and the best bit – writing buddies. They can be next door or the other side of the planet (this is now InterNaNo, really, with writers at it the world over, not just in USA), and are there to provide solace, encouragement and competition: nagging to stop you flagging and quibbling to keep you scribbling.

Have a look here . If you feel that it’s too late for you this year, but a big note in next year’s diary and get ready for NaNoWriMo 2016.

Or do you have your own support network and writing buddies to get you through the writing doldrums? Let me know what you do to beat the writer’s block blues.

I'm a writer from West Sussex is southern England, but after 30 years of urban life in London and Liverpool, I now live in a remote village 1,000 metres up in the Carpathian Mountains of Transylvania. My first book in Romania was published in November 2016: "Din Liverpool in Carpati: cum mi-am gasit fericirea în inima Transilvaniei". The English version, 'A stake in Transylvania' is out soon. I've also written (so far) four bilingual (En/Ro) children's books.
