Re: National Novel Writing MAY

I'm in - aiming for 1000 words a day. May 1 - Managed three handwritten pages, which I calculated to be approximately 1000 words. Won't know for sure until I type it up, which I plan to do at the end of the chapter. Easier than I thought; perhaps the last few days of essay writing have helped to eas...

Re: (This thread is not yet titled)

I like thinking of titles too. Sometimes having a key word or phrase linked to the project can help you to make associations and think of new ideas based on imagery that the title evokes.

Re: Forum Launch Party for Jacob Wonderbar!

Does anyone know if/when JACOB WONDERBAR will be available in UK bookshops? There is one copy on amazon.co.uk, but I haven't seen any 'in the flesh', as it were.
