NaNoWriMo – Day 27 & 28

You will have already noticed that I didn’t post yesterday. That was because I left the house around 10AM and wasn’t home until 1:30AM the next morning. As you can probably guess, I didn’t get any writing done. I’ve had to make the decision to call NaNoWriMo 2010 finished.

Monday is often a meet up day as, I […]
