Welcome to 2012. Wow! What a whirlwind the end of 2011 was. I hardly had time to breathe, let alone write, but it's time to leap back onto the inky trail and keep churning out words. After all, the only way to complete a novel is to sit down and actually write it. Check out the new links on the "Competitions" page and have a giggle at this month's quote (look right). Don't miss the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award, which closes 5th February (EST). I look forward to hearing from you and sharing our writing journeys.
