I have taken the plunge. I have registered for National Novel Writing Month which means I will write a 50,000 novel in one month. Have got approx 2450 words down so far. Here’s the synopsis:

Belonging Place

Three women, three stories – on life, lessons and love. Three journeys towards the belonging place.

Liliana Flint-Smith is starting out on her own. Leaving a dysfunctional family behind her, and with nothing but a uni degree in librarianship, Liliana moves to a remote village in regional Australia. Different from everyone else in the country town, she must find her place in a society that doesn’t take kindly to strangers. With the help of an embittered, but kindly old woman who lives in the flat next to her, Liliana begins to find herself and discovers it was never about her changing, but about learning to be herself; about learning about her belonging place.

Estelle Wainwright appears to have it all. She’s burning up the career ladder and has just made editor at a national woman’s magazine. Her husband Joel is also carving out his niche as an architect and together with their two children, are the picture of success. Or are they? Journey with Estelle as she fights the tension within herself: work and home, career and husband, businesswoman and mother. Estelle’s journey is one every mother might make towards a place that is right for her, towards her belonging place.

Jill Baker is struggling to stay afloat. With her husband passed and her children scattered across the country hundreds of kilometres away, she’s facing the prospect of living in a nursing home. But it’s her independence that makes her life worth living and she’ll be damned if she’ll bow to society’s plans for her. With a fierce will, Jill must find a way to triumph over old age and emerge into a life that still holds meaning. She must find her belonging place before it’s too late.
