I'm part of a collaborative writing project this year, called Narrathon.  It's being organised by NAWG and involves 19 writers completing a chapter each to produce a children's novel for publication in the second half of the year.  The project is now open for donations, and all the money will go towards the upkeep of NAWG itself.

Mine is chapter three - and it was tremendous fun writing it in January.  I can't wait to see the book in print and get to read the whole thing!

The very day I pretty much decided to abandon my novel as a 'useful first experiment', I got an email telling me I've been long-listed in the UK Novel Writing Competition!

Out of 3,112, mine has been selected along with 249 others to go forwards to the next stage of the competition.

So, yay!  I'll find out if it makes the short-list in March.  In the meantime, perhaps I should put the novel back on my list of projects for later in the year...
