Fermata… 2, November 2007

Posted by babychaos in General Wittering, Light Fluff, writing.

Not bus stop in Italian, pause. Yes, I am going to have a lovely holiday for a week, in Portugal. Rock on egg custard tarts and that weird swiss roll style cake with the gloopy orange custard in it. I can’t wait!

So all I have to do is make sure I get my Christmas card designs finished and sent off to the printer tomorrow… and I can rest easy. It’s warm in Portugal, not boiling but sunny and warm enough.

Did I say I can’t wait?

I have also joined this writing thing… Nanowrimo… National Novel Writing Month. I have set myself the task of planning my novel and writing up a reasonably coherent plot by the end of November. If I can write the 55,000 words the competition dictates, I will. If I can’t, well, no worries, it’s the coherent plot bit I need to get right.

So armed with a print out of “The Snowflake Method” (outlined here) to guide me I will be spending an hour or so, each day, on developing my plot, characters, etc… in the hope that it will enable me to actually finish my novel.

If I don’t manage to pop in and write/comment some drivvle tomorrow, I will be back next week!

Oh WHY does that happen to fall in the same month as NaBloPoMo? LOL

I’m writing a blog post everyday for November and here I thought I was working sooooo hard…ack. You’ve got me beat.

Mabye next year if I have a good solid idea for a novel then I’ll choose that instead…

have a GREAT holiday!! Hope the nausea continues enough to stave off any worry but not so much that you can’t eat the tarts and swiss roll dealies.
