I’ve entered this contest sponsored by the CBC, to write creative non-fiction, 1200 to 1500 words; deadline Feb. 1. The prize? $6000 and a two-week residency at an artist’s retreat in Banff! There are also four $1000 runner-up prizes. Wish me luck!
I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month once again, so I may be a little quiet here over the next month. I’m writing the third novel in my Toy Soldier Saga series, “Sable’s Privateers.” You can keep track of my progress at this link or on the Toy Soldier Saga Facebook group. See you more in December!
NaNoWriMo begins in 11 days. This is what I will be writing; the third book in my series “The Toy Soldier Saga.” 50000 words in a month is the goal; that’s 1667 words in a day. I succeeded in 2011 with my first book in the series, “A Few Good Elves“; I did not succeed in 2012 with the second book, “Brothers in Arms,” because I had another deadline on the 15th of November, but I did manage 35000 words. I am still writing “Brothers in Arms” but because the NaNoWriMo rules say you must start a new novel, I’m jumping in with Book Three anyway. Wish me luck! Although you may not hear as much from me in the next few weeks.
