Picowrimo: Week One Round-up

I haven't been doing as much writing as usual this November. Instead, I've been using picowrimo to keep myself on track with the final edits I need to do on Searching for Julia, before sending it out into the world. I've also been writing heading paragraphs for each chapter, like this one:

A warm welcome awaits at the Rupert Peveril Hotel. Located in the very centre of the bustling market town of Ashbourne, famous for its street football and Jacobite connections, this historic coaching inn offers all visitors a friendly reception, whether planning a one night business stay, or a fortnight's walking holiday in the nearby Peak District National Park. Range of rooms to suit every pocket. Full board tariff includes hearty courses of traditional Derbyshire fare. Game dishes available, in season, for a modest additional charge. Licensed bar open to residents and non-residents alike.

Or this one:

Friday 13th October 1922. Victor is dead. The damn fool shot himself at half-past two this afternoon. I can only pray that George, young as he is, has sufficient influence over the authorities that they will accept that the event was a tragic accident. I expect George's young wife will expect me to move into the Turret House and give her free rein to redecorate the Lodge as she sees fit. I suspect London will suit me better: the young people seemed uninterested in reopening Number 17, Penrith Gardens for the Season, but it will house me well year-round.

I've also drafted a 500-word synopsis. Go me!
