The cover for the novel I am attempting to write for NaNoWriMo

If you read this blog regularly you will know that I am a budding amateur author and have had a severe lack of time to write due to general life. I keep on banging on about stuff I have achieved away from writing and how I should now have more time to write. Well now I am noticing a little more free time I thought, in my own inimitable style, I would fill it up again. But this time with writing. I have had many ideas for novels and with The National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo) coming up I thought this would be the perfect time to pen one. Thus I have signed up and hope to hammer out at least 50,000 words by 31st November. The novel I have decided to go for is titled ‘The Journey Home’ and is about a set of soldiers whose army have lost a battle, they have survived but are stuck in enemy territory. The novel will follow them on their journey to get back home, hence the title!

However, to make the month a little bit stranger, it is Movember. I have always wanted to take part. I will be honest, it is not from a sense of charity, although that does help. The choice comes from the fact that growing a moustache is cool. I have grown one twice before and both times my then girlfriends were far from happy. My now wife is adamant she does not want me to have a moustache. I have always pandered to her views but now we are married with a child there is no way she will leave me, is there? Basically this is how I am looking at it, so there we go, I am doing Movemeber too. What is the most awesome part of it is that you can put both initiatives together to get what I call NaNoWriMovember. See what I did there? I am far too funny.

Any how if you want to follow my challenges next month you can by…
