Day Seven of Nano – plenty of words and rain too, but what’s the time?

nanowrimo-crest-05e1a637392425b4d5225780797e5a76I’ve been here in Turkey for seven weeks now, and in that time it has only rained on two days. Every other day it has been sunny. This is so good for the spirit, regular blue sky and sunshine.

Even as I write I can see some shafts of light piercing the heavy pillows of cloud. Yesss! The sun may appear, but more writing will be doneĀ if I am confined to barracks because of rain.

My laptop is determined to tell me I have more hours left to write than I actually have. I keep resetting it to the correct time and it keeps changing it back when I’m not looking.

So today, knowing that I am in the Istanbul time zone and knowing that I am actually in western Turkey I have had to pretend to the laptop that I am in Minsk. Minsk is the sno-hands-clockame as Baghdad and Moscow so I hope the laptop doesn’t notice and allows me to stay three hours ahead of the UK.

And now to rain more words on the Nano novel.

And thank you, Simon Haynes, for telling me about FreeMind , the marvellous mind mapping tool that I have used to plot and plan my novel.

Day seven input here I come…
