My First Nanowrimo update

So I have started the challenge. Writing 50,000 words for the novel I have decided to call Devil’s Assassin.

Here is the extract that I posted on the site under my novel information:

A happy person. That is how I have always been described by friends and family.  Always willing to help out, a kind ear and a shoulder to cry on. So what made me change? What caused me to start carrying a gun and a burning bow and arrows??

I was murdered.

Now for the dreaded word count… Well I have done well on that. My word count at the moment is 400. At this rate I will finish they tell me on November 27th 2014!

Thats the problem when you have crochet and cross stitch projects. Plus books to read and Christmas shopping to do!!

I do hope to make some real progress on the novel this week. Need some inspiration.

Until my next update… Happy Crafting!!!

    Keep working on it! I find that if I get on a good roll I can do 1000 words in 30 minutes! The word sprints on Twitter are also really good motivation (@nanowordsprints) good luck!
