I am a Nanowrimo 2010 Winner

30 Nov 2010 / 4 Comments / in Family, Happiness, writing

You may now all queue in an orderly fashion for autographs.


It was hard going, some days, easier other days, and only missed out on doing any writing at all on 3 of the 30 days. Very chuffed with myself for not slacking off half way through which is my usual MO. But I always said I work best to a tight deadline.

So look, it’s not going to win any Booker prizes and if it were a movie it would be a forgettable popcorn for the eyes RomCom but hey, those babies make big bucks at the box office and who doesn’t secretly love a fluffy romcom now and then?

So now I am on leave, no novel to write, and I’m off to spend the night in a tented camp in the mountains above Hout Bay with my sister. We’re gonna hike, we’re gonna swim in the dam, talk kak, laugh, chill, drink BEER, braai, NOT write, NOT go online, just relax.

It’s been a long time since I’ve taken a holiday and I really think, with the year I’ve had one way and another, I totally deserve a break 🙂
