NANOWRIMO 2014… must be that time of year again!

So, it makes perfect sense, having written nothing, nada, zero, keine  for 8 months, to back myself into a writing corner and commit to NANOWRIMO 2104……in theory a commitment to complete a 50,000 word novel in 30 days,

( for more info bout the joyous world that is speed novel writing, please visit    – where everything will be explained)


But, this year, given my lack of preparation and a long term writing block, oh and because I am also training for my first ever boxing bout on the 29th November……I am not aiming to complete 50,000 words in 30 days, instead, I am making a commitment to write one of 30 linked but stand alone pieces over the next 30 days.

The title of each of the pieces has suggested by a friend or colleague telling me about an object that has special significance or meaning to them ( but not the actual meaning or the story behind the object).

The list is eclectic, ranging from a slice of black forest gateau to a national trust postcard, a wooden giraffe to a single brogue shoe.

You will be able to read the first short story tomorrow.
