Oh boy….

So, I entered NaNoWriMo, which for all you non-hipsters out there, is National Novel Writing Month. The basic idea is that over the course of 30 days in November, you write a novel of 50,000 words. That averages out roughly to 1700 words per day.

My face right now:

I made a start yesterday, but not in the best environment (a bar) and managed 500 words, so that relieves the pressure today……NOT. At the same time, I´ve also been doing a creative writing course which could´t want more blood if it tried. I was concerned that maybe it would suck the life force out of me, but it´s actually given me a bit of a kick. Not to say it´s easy, it´s BLOODY HARD. It´s day one and I have spent most of the time sucking my thumb, eating biscuits and wondering what´s on TV.

But I will persevere!

As far as food related happenings go, I´m going to be trying out some of the recipes from the Eat Well For Less cookbook I linked to in my last post.

Happy weekend all!
