NaNoWrimo is going well!

Despite starting the NaNoWrimo Challenge a few days late, I have almost got up to the 25,000 word [half way] mark, half way through the month.

My book is a Historical Romance set around the back drop of 19th century Abercanaid/Merthyr Tydfil. The inciting incident is an explosion at The Gethin Pit.

I'm thoroughly enjoying the research and putting what I've learned into my novel, without hopefully, turning it into too much of a history book.

I've named the book, "Black Diamonds" because as well as liking that term, it refers to coal!

So let's hope I can get the next 25,00 words down by the end of November!
