Camp NaNoWriMo winner 1

From July 1st I will be embarking upon my second attempt to write a 50,000 word novel with the help and motivation provided by NaNoWriMo. Throughout the month I will be keeping this page updated with my (hopefully positive) progress, so be sure to stop by every now and then to see how I’m doing. If you like the sound of this challenge, and would like to give it a try yourself, be sure to head on over to the Camp NaNoWriMo website to get yourself set up and ready for the big day.

Novel synopsis

The upcoming October half term gives thirteen year old Lucy Robinson and her younger brother Connor a rare chance to have a whole family holiday with their mother who works for the Navy as a Communication Specialist. The excitement caused by this opportunity starts to cause some problems at school for Lucy and Connor as deadlines for work in the last week are missed and eagerness for school to finish begins to show. This turns out to just be the start of things to come though, and when they travel down to Plymouth to meet their mother for a week of relaxation and family enjoyment it becomes a more memorable experience than they ever could have imagined.
