This is the time of year when students return to university. The moment the weather starts to change and the leaves start to turn I get itchy fingers. It's not eczema. The autumn makes me lust after books and a QWERTY keyboard. Ideas that have percolated through the summer start leaking into my conscious mind and demanding to be unleashed into a book.
How do I plan to let them out this time? NaNoWriMo. A month from now, I will be at the start of the third book in the series. I'm not sure the characters would be so eager to get onto paper if they knew what was in store for them. I have a feeling that things may not go entirely as planned. By the end of November I should have the first draft finished. It's an ambitious plan but I can't wait!
