NaNoWriMo: National Novel Writing Month has started. .  Although the server's pretty frantic at present, so it might not load for you straightaway.

I've undertaken the challenge this year, and am aiming to keep myself honest and on track by blogging about it.  My NaNoWriMo user page is here , with an extract from The Bluebird Café.

Typing words for this confirms something I've learned and taught about fiction writing - you don't necessarily know what you're going to write about until you start putting words on the page.  So, you need to write, to unfurl what is waiting in your mind and heart.

And then you edit a lot.  But first, write the stuff you're going to edit.
