Thanks to Camp NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month) last night I finally finished the first draft of my book full of step-by-step articles on how to create polymer clay canes.

More news to follow over the coming months, but in the meantime I am so pleased to have actually reached such a milestone. I started the book about fifteen years ago, and it has been on a (virtual) dusty shelf ever since then.

Giant thanks also to the Rocking Self Publishing and Creative Penn podcasts, which gave me the inspiration to (virtually) blow the (virtual) dust off this half-started project.

I am now really looking forward to “proper” NaNoWriMo in November, and in a fit of excitement have bought “First Draft in 30 Days” by Karen Wiesner.
