Another NaNoWriMo update

The last two days haven’t been kind to me in the writing of my NaNo project. My last good day of writing was Monday. Since then, I’ve not written a single word unless you count a blog post I started this morning (scheduled to go live on 30th November) – 280 words, another that went live a short time ago celebrating Bram Stoker’s 165th birthday – 70 words –  and now this one.

I’m hoping to get back on track maybe later today but more apt to be this weekend. Even then, it won’t be until Sunday since I’m away all day Saturday at a “how to be your own publicist” workshop put on by the Writers’ Union of Canada.

This post 115 words excluding this sentence.


Happy Birthday Bram Stoker!

Yup, today is Bram Stoker’s 165th birthday. While he’s best known for his novel, Dracula, (of which both Cruden Bay in Aberdeenshire Scotland and Whitby in Yorkshire, England take credit for inspiring because of their rugged North Sea cliffs) he has also penned Dracula’s Guest, Lair of the White Worm, The Man, The Jewel of Seven Stars, and The Lady of the Shroud.

So, happy birthday to you, Bram Stoker!
