New Project 


As mentioned on Monday, I have decided upon a new project for NaNoWriMo 2016 and it’s in a genre I’ve never written before: YA historical. The reason I’m doing this is because I got an idea after visiting some museums on Friday and decided to go with it. I’ve also learnt that prepping for NaNo too early for the method I chose to try again this year is September – I spent a lot of time sitting around waiting for it to start. 

I’ve barely started brainstorming, but what I can say is that the project is set in Victorian times and that the main character is a foundling, an abandoned child, who sets out trying to find out who she really is. 

Hopefully by this time next week I will be nearly ready to write, but we’ll see. 

Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? 


Words on Wednesday: New Project 

It’s all change here this week!

After deciding that I needed help from potential critique partners on Storybook Endings, I typed up what I had so far and sent it to them. 

Now I’m working on a new project, which I’m preparing for NaNoWriMo 2016! It’s going by the hashtag #MagiciansYA and I’m loving working on it. 

I did my magic cookies list – I might do a future blog post on these, actually – and now I’m working on characters! 

Here is my character profile page on Dylan, my main character. She’s a girl and I did check, Dylan is a Welsh girl’s name!

Once I’ve worked out some notes on my major characters I shall move onto plot. I’m aware that I will discover things about them as I outline as I go and draft, so I’ve left space for notes and questions for each character. I’m hoping it will be enough. 

What are you working on this week? Have you started preparing for NaNoWriMo yet?
