National Novel Writing Month is every November. The aim is to write 50,000 words in a month. Last year, I got up to 26,000 on an Icar story. This year, I'm going to try again. It was a challenge and lots of fun. It starts tomorrow. I just want to see how far I can get.

I aimed to set off this morning at 07:30, giving myself a full hour to get there, get showered and sat at my desk as normal. I got all my stuff together the night before so that I could concentrate on just checking the machine over and getting started. I left at 07:28 and ploughed on up to the the Rushey Way, Beech Lane, Wilderness lane, Wokingham road and on.
