I've done it! I'm officially a NaNoWriMo Winner. At 18.35 I finished my last Dreaming of Sleep sentence, with a final count of 50,431 words. After a few nervous seconds waiting for the Nanowrimo bots to check my word document, I received confirmation I was a winner.
It's been a long month, which started off well enough and then became trickier with health worries. But I've done it. I now have 50,000 words of my Science Fiction novel. Will I do it next year? Off course I will.
Changing the subject, I have an unusual writing opportunity for those of you looking for a challenge. Pill Hill Press have announced a submission call for an anthology called The ePocalypse: e-mails at the end. The stories will be told through emails, with each story being written by teams of two or more writers. As some of you may know, I love anything different or unique. So, I'm eager to be part of this one.
Would you like to be part of this anthology? Apart from flexing those writing muscles, there are financial incentives too - one team will win the Editor's Choice Award ($150) and another will win the Contributor's Choice Award ($100). Please note: they are not looking for zombie stories, unless it is something unique to the apocalyptic genre.
If you are interested in this anthology, please read the guidelines and also check out the forum. My email address is available on my Contact page if you’d like to message me about forming a team.
