Nanowrimo. 5-day update number 5
Dear reader, Welcome to the Nanowrimo report after 25 days of writing. The word count for Hilda 16 is currently well over 75.000 words. The story is still going strong but it needs a lot of tender loving care because writing at this speed is demanding that the gods of Typos come over for frequent visits! What’s been going […]
Nanowrimo. 5-day update number 4
Dear reader, The madness which many people around the world lovingly call Nanowrimo is on track since 20 days. My story is still progressing nicely and I had the most amazing moment of synchronicity that I could hope for. Or not even that. I was writing part 15 of my Hilda series when Nanowrimo started. […]
Nanowrimo. 5-day update number 3
Dear reader, The Nanowrimo madness is in its 15th day and I’m still going ahead full steam as far as work and other things allow. The word count for the project currently is at 52362. I can already promise you that this will be a very large new Hilda book. Forgive me if this upsets you, […]
Nanowrimo. 5-day update number 2
Dear reader, The madness called Nanowrimo has been running for 10 days now. As usual I’m not very worried about reaching the goal of 50,000 words as my current word count for the project is at 37,228 words and I’m far from being done with the story. Not bad for ten days. I am thoroughly enjoying this […]
Nanowrimo. 5-day update number 1
Dear reader, The madness is off since 5 days. I think I’m making good progress towards the goal of (at least) 50,000 words. My current count stands at 22,172 words. As you may recall, my aim is to write most (or even better: all) of book 16 in the Hilda the Wicked Witch series, which […]
Lots of Hilda news
Dear reader, I’ve been on vacation. Sometimes even writers take a break from normal life – but that does not mean a writer (this writer) also takes a break from writing. On the contrary. A lot has happened while I was away to Crete. The fifteenth book in the Hilda the Wicked Witch series has […]
Nanowrimo and a few questions.
Dear reader, If you’ve visited my site / blog more than a few times you’ll be aware of this mad phenomenon called Nanowrimo. National Novel Writer’s Month. The crazy scheme to write a novel in one month, being November. Today, as I was walking down some stairs and up some others, I suddenly realised that […]
The cover for Nanowrimo.
Dear Reader, Even though I am still in the middle of writing this year’s NANOWRIMO story (an urban fantasy), I have the pride and pleasure to present the cover for the new book already: It’s designed by the wonderful artist Renée Barratt of “The Cover Counts“, and I’m eager to put the book together with […]
Dear reader, In November the madness will strike again, and as in the previous years I plan to participate. I’ve had many ideas about what to write for this, my personal seventh edition. I started with no idea, then one idea, after that there were lots of them and I faced the choice – something […]
Nanowrimo-issue. A question for my readers.
Dear Reader, As I did the last 6 years I intend to venture into the madness of Nanowrimo again this year. After some pondering the subject for this year’s writing craze I remembered having two options last year. As one of them was written then (the history of the Mimosa, readers of Hilda – Lycadea […]
