The Novel Race revisited

Regular visitors might remember that back at the start of the year I considered joining the novel race being set up on Kate Harrison's blog.

I didn't then, because the time was not right. But now my Open University course is drawing to a close and I want to get back to my novel. Soon. But I need motivation and moral support.

Things are also changing for the novel racers, who are in the process of moving to a brand new blog home here. So I thought now would be a good time to get on board. It has not been the highly competitive race I thought it might be, so I think I will feel comfortable there. If you are writing a novel, why don't you join in too?

I'm dropping by to say hello...

I know the feeling of wanting motivation and support (as if my supervisor's breath down the back of my neck is not sufficient!)... sometimes it is just nice to chat to other writerly nuts who want to write a novel!

As for highly competitive race - I too have been most relieved to find I can hobble along in the background without feeling too miserable about it!

Hi there
I'm sure you'll be comfortable there. We are all sorts of people and writers! Like Hesitant Scribe says, I'm a hobbler too; fighting my demons etc. Everyone is lovely and supportive, and very pleased with each achievement.
Welcome anyway.
