I have started doing this:-
I'm sure you've all seen these meters littered around the blogosphere and you all know what they mean. Yes, I am trying to assemble 80,000 words together to make a coherent whole.
The central character is Carol, an out of work dentist from Harrow who’s dumped herself on Wayne, a billionaire playboy from Wigan. A scuffle down Fanny's Lane ensues closely followed by a mysterious incident on Blotched Bottom Common involving the Littlehampton Confectionery Display Team. It reaches its climax with a death defying escapade on top of a haystack in a field just off the A30 [sorry Dave, but I do kiss and tell].
As you can tell, this is to be a well researched historical/romantic novel.
Progress is slow and I really need all my powers of concentration, and a huge dollop of discipline, to get it done.
I will write my next blog post when I hit 10,000, or when I get fed up with trying. I will also still be keeping an eye on you all.
Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast!
