It’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) which is very exciting as, after taking October off to spend my time submitting my first novel to literary agents and publishers (as a quick update – so far unsuccessfully),  I am itching to get back to writing. My second book in The Grayson Trilogy is called Before the Dawn and whilst being fully formed in my mind I have had to force myself to hold off starting writing it – until now! And I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to getting going!

I’m generally not one for signing up for online group type forumy things (yes I am making up words) but I’m giving it a go though I think with the deadline I already feel upon me it is unlikely I will have any time to interact at all. The information I have given is a little sketchy as well and as for a short synopsis of the plot – absolutely not ready to do that yet! Will have to think long and hard about what to say that will satisfy without giving it all away – also a bit difficult when no one knows what went on in the first book – actually I’m starting to think I haven’t thought this through at all…..

Anyway, having signed up I am a little daunted by the thought of 50,000 words in the month especially as the website (helpfully!) told me there are only 29 days left which means 1725 per day and I know just how busy I already am for the rest of the month with my current workload. However – who doesn’t like a challenge – and as I have pointed out in previous blog posts I also love a deadline! So bring it on…..

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.
