I made a vow to myself in the summer to do two things before the end of this year. You can find out what those two things are by clicking here - but only if you'd like to.
The first of the two things has been taking care of itself without any input from me.
The second has been more problematic but also more exciting.
And so, I am as pleased as punch to say that after much thought, scribbling and planning, I have today started writing my very first novel. I have no idea if it will be any good (although I'm writing it as if it will be). All I know is that if I don't get it out of my head and down in print, I'll go a bit mad.
Wordcount so far: 1,444. Only 58,556 to go.
