I have made life difficult for myself, I am working on four intertwined stories simultaneously, trying not to lose track of who is doing what with whom and where.  I should have devised a card index system before I started, to keep tabs on everyone, but didn’t, as I was in such a hurry to get the words down. I think I am my own worst enemy.  Lesson learned.

During the month of November, whilst I am joining in with The National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) attempting to write a 50,000 word draft novel, I will be posting about my progress (or not) every day.  I have removed the comment box so as not to have too many distractions, but will switch it back on again at the end of the month, when, hopefully, I will have completed my mission.
