My NaNo novel

Holaaa Lexicans! Today I am doing a post on the book I will be writing for NaNo (for my first time doing NaNo ahhh pass me cake (cake makes everything better ya know (I'm doing so many brackets in one bracket haha)))* SO i know that I already did a post on my WIP but being me I ditched that for my NEW story (ok just saying that I'm literally wondering how on earth I'm going to cope with NaNo).

Meet Arthur, a 60 year old man, two times divorced, now single, with no children, no friends and no one to turn to. To everyone else, Arthur is the classic grumpy, old, get-out-my-way, child hating man who sits in the same spot of the same coffee shop at the same time every day. Arthur is basically the Bounty in a box of Heroes, nutty and always last to be picked**

*preferably a Victoria sponge - it's a classic, or a plain sponge with fresh strawberries and cream
**not to be chocolateist and I do know that there are some solid Bounty fans out there. Twirl is still better.

Arthur is living the same lonely routine every day, until a random 23 year old arrives at the coffee shop and changes Arthur's life forever... *cue suspense*

Now I am currently writing this story, but depending on how much I write and how I feel about it depends whether I start a new draft for NaNo or finish the one I've started!

The cast are:
Arthur (old, grumpy)
Kate (mid 20s, funny, brown hair and green eyes)
Lizzie (Kate's age, very pretty,  doesn't care about Arthur)
Charlotte (3 or 4, has beautiful blonde curls, reminds Arthur of his daughter)
Michelle (Arthur's first wife)
Shannon (Arthur's second wife)

So that's a little snippet of information about my story, and let me know if you'd like to hear more information + little samples from the story! Is this the sort of thing you like the sound of? Will you be doing NaNo this year?



  1. This story sounds so awesome!

  2. Ahhh Nano! I managed it twice when I was a bit younger, but these last few years have just been hetic. It can be quite hard getting the 1667 words a day but I have such faith in you and your ability to smash nano. And the cool certificate at the end makes it super official and cool. I am full of admiration for you. I think, dont know if this is still a thing, but they used to have a deal with createspace where you could get a discount to print your nano novel or something but idk, I did it years ago so I cant really remember.

    So much love, and good luck with nanowrimo!!

    1. Haha thank you so much. I doubt I will achieve the 1667 words a day (but hey a girl can dream) but I'm going to aim as best as I can for 1k a day.

  3. YYAYYY GOOD LUCK WITH NANO!! *flails* I'm definitely doing it too, only I still haven't decided what I want to write yet! I had it all planned out but then accidentally started to plot a pirate book. So who knows. SO DEAD. XD Anyway, I love the sound of your story! It's making me think of the movie Up now. ;)

    1. Yayy we can write and eat cake together! And I never thought of Up when planning the story, but now you've pointed it out I can totally see they have a similar vibe.

  4. Ahh, this is so cool! Can't wait to read more. :)

  5. LEXIE I'M CHEERING YOU ON!!! I'm doing NaNo, but unconventionally. It's going to be fun. Are you going to sign up for the YWP version or are you going the full 50k?

    xoxo Morning

    1. Yay thank you!! I'm probably going sign up for the YWP one, as there is a very very small chance that I will be even close to 50k at the end of November.

  6. I've done Nano before except we call it NanoWrimo for National Novel Writing Month. It's really hard to get everything done in one month but so worth it!
