Day 6 and Linda has been writing each day, updating her progress on the NaNoWriMo site. The novel is called Take it from here and is a story of a young married couple Tim and Clare who live in a small flat. They have been together for two years. They live in a London suburb. Tim commutes every day to work – he works in advertising. Clare is a dental assistant and works close to home.
Clare’s mum died a couple of years ago and now her dad has a new girlfriend. Tim says he doesn’t like the new girlfriend and Clare isn’t sure – she wants her dad to be happy but she thinks Stella might be ‘wrong’ for her dad. Stella is the opposite of what her mum was like.Their life is fairly mundane and humdrum … and then one day the phone rings. Things are never the same again.
Writing 50000 words in a month is quite a challenge but Linda appears to take it in her stride. So far she is on target to complete in 30 days and is looking forward to the weekend and having greater freedom to write for longer each day and get immersed in this story.
Progress so far:
