Nanowrimo and the 52107 Reasons I’ve not been about

I had expected to get to around 20k and would have been happy with that but I managed to keep it going.

Was there anyone else reading this who took part? How did you do? What would you do differently next time?

So happy December to you all were now on the charge towards Christmas and the world is going mad. I hope you’re all well…

So… What’s going on here?
