This is a super short post to let you all know I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year. That's National Novel Writing Month FYI. During November I'll be trying to write the first 50,000 words of my second novel (also an upper middle grade fantasy and book 2 in a series – you can read more about Book 1 here). If you are interested in holding me accountable I'll be posting my progress on Twitter.

Today I have managed 2,100 words and rewarded myself with a swim, a custard tart (the bakery here is amazing! It's lucky that I have to walk up a really big hill every time I visit so I don't feel so guilty about all the sweets!). Am feeling good about the story so I might go back for a few more words while we're still staying in one place.

Reward swim!
