For this year’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), I’m starting the sequel to You Don’t Know Jack, a book which has been written but still needs a cover then its final read-through. At present it’s called Dragonfall, or possibly Now You Know Jack, or You Still Don’t Know Jack. Or, more likely, it will end up being called none of these things. What is certain is the subtitle: “Tale of an Autoscopath”.

The aim of NaNoWriMo is to write a novel in a month. Their definition of “novel” is 50,000 words. Mine usually turn out 80,000-100,000, so it’s unlikely that the first draft will be done by December 1st, but it’ll be a start.

Updates to word count will be posted here and on my Facebook page. Hopefully that will keep me honest and motivated.

Current words: 7,500. Slight roadblock hit when I realised I needed to rework the entire beginning.
