It’s November, or National Novel Writing Month. I dithered to and fro about whether or not to participate this year. I’ve not managed more than a few pages since I started working, but I have an idea, and I think it might be good.
So I decided to take the plunge, but I’m doing it a little differently. I’m setting myself a lower target of 25,000 words, and I’m doing it sponsored. I figure it will be good motivation, and will be doing something good.
The British Heart Foundation is a charity which researching heart conditions, helps those with heart problems- and their families, offers information and tries to increase awareness. As a teenager I volunteered in a BHF shop.
Macmillan supports those with cancer and their families. They provide nursing and hospice care, advice, and help with issues which may arise due to having a serious illness, as well as everyday support.
I have particular reasons for choosing both these charities, but it’s something I’d rather not go into. That’s about as personal as you get on this blog- at least for now.
Again please sponsor me
Of course this writing will eat into some of my reading time so I’m expecting to get out less reviews. I still plan on making a Sunday Surfing and a Children’s Hour post each week, and I’ll probably do a weekly update on how NaNoWriMo and my fundraising is going.
Last time, I promise. Please, please sponsor me. As much, or as little as you want. And feel more than welcome to share this post.
Thank you everyone
