I’ve accepted a challenge to write a serialised novel.
If I manage to come up with 35,000 words by the beginning of November my book will be featured on Wattpad, which is a huge online platform for writers.
Normally that amount of words would take me about 6 months so I’m excited but also quaking in my socks.
The book is about Amber, a feisty young woman on a mission to blag her way into the bizarre world of Conceptual Art; her plan, of course, being to grab some fame and fortune.
The novel will be a light, upbeat romantic comedy, unless the pressure gets to me, in which case I’ll start killing off characters.
To be honest, my plotting has barely begun but I have a cork board and post-it notes so there’s hope.
I don’t know why I think I can pull a novel out of my pocket in a few weeks but I believe in saying ‘Yes’ when an opportunity arises.
If my blog starts to look neglected, now you'll know why.
But I won’t be away for long.
The first chapter of Spray Painting Bananas has already been written. Now I need a book cover.
To read my serialised novel, you'll need to sign up and find me on Wattpad which is quick and completely free. Once registered, you'll be able to browse through a huge variety of stories and novels.
I'll let you know when my first chapter is up.
Wish me luck, I'm going to need it!
