It’s that time of the year. NaNoWriMo 2023 is approaching


NaNoWriMo is a month-long creative writing challenge that takes place every November.

It’s only a short time (48 days from today) until this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge starts and I’m already trying to decide which project I’m going to work on this year.

This will be my ninth year of attempting to write a 50,000-word first draft in the month. I’ve published the eight previous NaNo projects I’ve attempted and I have high hopes for this year.


My previous NaNoWriMo projects


I’ve already booked my editor for December 1st in anticipation. Hopefully, that alone will give me extra motivation to keep going.

As usual, I have a choice of stories and I’ve narrowed it down to three. Here are the titles, working concept covers and a brief note about the main idea of each.


Where’s Lizzie?

A psychological thriller.

He was only away for an hour, he left his wife and baby daughter in their broken-down car, parked in a layby.

When he returned, his car had moved. Now it was against a tree, a mile further down the road.

His wife had hit her head and lost her memory.

Worse than that, his one-year-old daughter was missing from the back seat.


My Sister Alex.

A Science Fiction adventure.

You learn that your sister’s dead, half a Galaxy away.

In the midst of your grief, your problems are only just beginning.

What was she involved in?

Why have you become a target?

How well do you know your family?


Crime of the Century

A time travel caper.

We all have crazy ideas when we’ve had a bit to drink.

Steff’s was for the perfect crime.

All you needed was an old newspaper.

And a time machine.


Over the next three weeks, I’ll be sharing extracts from each of the stories, before deciding which project to work on this November.
