A catch-up blog from me this week. I told readers on 31 October 2022 that I would be taking part in the annual NaNoWriMo writing challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. What I didn’t tell you was what a big deal this was for me, because after losing my mom at the beginning of July I’d found it very hard to write anything. I won’t say it was easy this time, but I did it – I wrote over 50,000 words in the thirty days of November! Yipee!
This was my ninth time of achieving this challenge, which has led to several of my published novels. To be honest, it was just good to be writing again and I’ve carried on since, not at such an intense pace, but writing every day which makes me very happy.
Christmas is fast approaching and I put up my outside tree yesterday. The inside ones will have to wait until I can find a gap to put them up, but all the things I need are down from the loft. Our grandson, eldest son’s son, is one on 13 December (where did that year go?) and youngest son returns from university on 17 December, so I can tell already that things are going to get hectic.
If you are very quick, you might just catch my Christmas book, Christmas at the Little Beach Café at the bargain price of 99p – link here. That book is also now available in large print – link here, which is very exciting as it’s my first large print title. I’ll include the blurb below.
Look out for Juliet Archer, author of Hope, Mistletoe and a Christmas Promise published by Choc Lit on my blog next week.
I hope that your arrangements for the festive season are progressing well. Mx
