Done it!

I'm a winner!
I’m a winner!

I’ve not been as much of a virtual presence over the last month as usual, and that’s because I’ve been taking part in NaNoWriMo this November, and I’m thrilled to have made it past the winner’s 50,000 word mark.

That said, although the novel is over 50,000 words, the story’s far from done, and there is a lot more work to go into the editing too. My next challenge, once Christmas is past and I have time again, is to press on and finish it.

In case you’re wondering, it’s tentatively called ‘The Roar of the Lion’ and is based in and after the civil war in Sierra Leone, and is the story of how three people with troubled pasts find ‘redemption’. A taste can be found here.
