NaNoWriMo Update 4 – Live updates available online

This is the fourth update for the novel I’m writing for NaNoWriMo this year. Week three certainly was a challenge just to keep going. Fatigue set in quite early in the week and it’s been a struggle in that sense every day since then. It’s actually odd to report that at no point have I really felt like I’ve got on any kind of roll with the writing of ‘Hitchhiking Through Hell with a Hangover’, and yet with only four days to go I’m sitting at a word count of around 43500, about 100 words ahead of where I need to be. So I have relatively few grounds for complaint and all I can do now is hope that I can get to the finish on the right side of 50000 words and also with the story finished.

I’ve managed to put a few more chapters on smashwords and wattpad for people to read now. So, if you feel inclined, Chapters 1-9 of ‘Hitchhiking through Hell with a Hangover’, are available to download or read for free. Once again I will warn you that it does contain some rather strong language from the outset. Here are the links:



Thank you for your time and happy reading.


James Eddy was born in Braintree, Essex in April 1980. After moving first to Colchester, Essex, the family settled in South Norfolk and James was able to enjoy the wide open spaces and quiet of the area which fed his imagination. Following an undistinguished University career, he began writing scripts for films and acting out the cliche of the drunken writer. He diversified by moving into prose and eventually focussed enough to write a collection of Short Stories called 'Diamonds' along with several other short stories a novel and novella. He released 'Bewilder', the first story from 'Diamonds' in April 2012.
