Events conspire in my favour for a change

I think the universe has finally called my bluff with regards to writing. For many years I've struggled to fit writing in around Life and Everything, somehow managing to complete 3 novels and a handful of short stories[1].

More recently I've become frustrated and rather disillusioned. I did complete a round of novel_in_90 about 18 months ago, during which time I added a chunk of words to a novel that I've been wrestling with for years. It's still not finished though.

Since then I've fiddled with a couple of things but not had the time or the energy to make serious progress. And now... I've just started an online creative writing course and I'm about to be made redundant! In theory, I should have far more time to write. So, I can't pass up this opportunity to join novel_in_90 for another round.

I missed the first day because the start of a new round took me by surprise, but I the day off today and have prepared a new spreadsheet this morning. Word count here I come!




[1] The novels never sold, 3 of the short stories did but it's been years since I even submitted anything.
