NaNoWriMo is just 6 days away!


This year my determination to write Book 2 of The Creators has inspired a landslide of fellow writers.

Sarah (my 12 year old daughter) has decided to join the Young Writer's Program and write an 8000 word novel about Vermaids - Vampire Mermaids. It sounds so exciting.

Elizabeth (my 20 year old daughter) has decided to join NaNoWriMo and write a 50 000 word screenplay called - Late Night Shopping

and Michelle my best friend has decided to write the first of her six books that are rattling around in her head.

Michelle has also set up a challenge group and attracted people from all walks of life to attempt something for 30 days, so we have all sorts of challenges.

It is exciting!

Will keep you updated.

Joy is in the Swing

Elizabeth took Mom shopping yesterday morning and then picked up Dad for a drive down to the river to see the flood after all the recent rain.
She then ran to the swings and let go, all the joy of being young and free is visible in these photos.

Elizabeth you are beautiful!

(Mom, thanks for the photos)

NaNoWriMo 2010

Here is a huge announcement for November 2010

I am writing Book Two of 'The Creators' this November.

Not only that but Sarah will be joining me in an endeavour to write her novel 'Vermaids', she will attempt to write 8 000 as part of the Young Writer's Programme.

Elizabeth will also be signing up in the next few days, so our household is going to be filled with 'artistic madness' in the month of November.

Wish us all luck, as our fingers fly across the keyboards and the words flow.
