Set backs and start ups

I've been sick in bed for the last week or so, crippled with a bad upper respiratory infection (ear ache, cough, etc) and I haven't been able to do any writing (the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak). That means I am about two weeks behind schedule. I'll try and catch up, but I'm not 100 % yet, so my plans will have to be changed again. I guess I'll take October to finish Til the Moon Fails. Still, if I get it finished this month, it will have only taken me three months to write, compared to 10 months on In Search of the Moon. Not bad.

The National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) website opens this week for registration. I toyed with the idea of being Municipal liaison for my area this year. I even considered doing up snazzy posters and going on local radio, but when I learned I would have to moderate a forum and encourage people online I thought it would involve too much precious time and decided against doing it. I will be doing the challenge though - 50,000 words in 30 days. A doddle! I'm writing a zombie horror, so that is what I'll be plunging straight into after I finish Til the Moon Fails. Lots of flesh eating and gore - great! Check out NaNoWriMo's site (link on left) and sign up.
