The Lady Winter (Nanowrimo)

Last year I started ‘The Lady Winter’ for Nanowrimo. I got about 17,000 words into the story and then ground to a halt.

This was still my best attempt at Nanowrimo to date.


However, this year I am determined. I will write fifty thousand words within the month of November and I will complete a first draft of a novel so that I can at least say I have managed that. I will not be starting from scratch though.

It is my intention to continue ‘The Lady Winter’ and simply add another 50,000 words onto the draft that I already have. Since I ground to a halt last year I am going to spend the rest of this month planning out what will happen in the book and doing a little bit of editing on what exists. I don’t really want another incomplete novel hanging around my bedroom so this seemed like the most reasonable course of action.


We shall see how it goes.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
