It’s happened. I’m writing. I’m not sure how far I’ll get with this as I still have a full time job and university to contend with but…



So here’s a few things about my NaNo 2017 project to give you an idea of what’s going on in my head.

  1. It’s a Young Adult novel
  2. It’s set in some version of our future where the world has fallen due to deceit, dishonesty and blatant lies from those in power. They caused irreparable destruction, civil war and the end of the world as we know it. The people now in control are obsessed with honesty (to a dangerous level) and the new society of the ‘New Common Era’ is built with this virtue as its core pillar of strength.
  3. It follows my protagonist, Verity, who has been brought up by a kind neighbour, Mrs Andrews, after her father’s death. Mrs Andrews is the only family she has.
  4. Verity is a driven young woman who is working towards her dream job within the government and is just starting an apprenticeship in order to gain enough experience and earn enough money to be able to pay for her training.

That’s it. That’s all the information you’re getting until I get this publishedΒ πŸ˜‰Β πŸ˜‚


Let me know below how you’re doing with your own NaNoWriMo projects and any words of encouragement would be much appreciated. 50,000 words is more than a marathon right now… We’ve got to have each other’s backs through this.

Good luck all and happy writing!!



  1. This sounds like a fun one! I’m also participating in NaNo this year for the first time! I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I’ve never thought about writing a book before but I’m going to give it a go! Good luck with yours! πŸ™‚


    1. Thanks! Hopefully I’ll share a bit more as I’m writing – helps me to realise it’s real and convince myself to write more even if people only know the vaguest smidge of detail. Good luck with your little word baby too!!

      1. Yes! We have a few from our book club who are writing so we’re working on formulating some work groups to keep us motivated. That will help a lot. Thank you!! Can’t wait to see how everyone participating does at the end of the month!
