I woke up several times in the night with a swollen throat and the beginnings of migraine. The migraine hit in full force this morning. I didn't manage to get out of bed until around one in the afternoon. I scribbled a few words down, but I don't know if they'll even make it into … Continue reading Just A Little Writing
Yesterday consisted solely of running around after my niece. She is flipping adorable. We had the best day together. It consisted of throwing food about the place, reading books, going to the park, singing songs, rolling around on the bed, signing along with Mr Tumble, chasing cats, running around in a circle and two really good … Continue reading Being An Aunt
I wrote a little more of my novel, thus far I am around eight hundred words into the 'final revision'. I really hope I speed things up or I'll be finishing this when I'm a pensioner. I also wrote up the description of an asthma attack. It's father pleasingly one hundred words. A stabbing pain shoots across … Continue reading Write What You Know
Again didn't get a chance to post yesterday. Asthma struck again. In the morning I kept on working on my Novel. I'm hoping one day soon I'll be able to write a thousand words or so in a sitting like I did in my first draft. I miss that freedom. Writing group last night was … Continue reading Keep on Writing
Didn't get a chance to post yesterday so here it is. I got a few good words down in the morning. Even though each word feels laborious I'm slowly progressing the story.Now my quandary is I have 5 characters in my first chapter. All but one are immediate family and one is unconscious. It doesn't feel … Continue reading Overthinking?
Despite my best intentions, I ended up editing bits of the first scene. Though I mostly added and only took away a few words so I'm going to say it's just fine. This afternoon I started making a circle skirt out of gorgeous satin, then drafted up a post to show off my make, it will … Continue reading I lied
I managed to scribble down a few more words of my first chapter. Today's writing involved researching seizures. So much of my research leads me to the NHS website. It's another work day so I'm happy I got anything down. My cat has decided I make a fine bed and is demanding a fuss, her paws stretched up … Continue reading Every Little Helps
Today was a work day, so pretty difficult to write anything creative. However, I did put out a newsletter for Crafty Sew & So. I forgot to check the word count but I reckon it was around 500 words. The co-owner, who's been away on maternity leave, came in for a quick craft session with her … Continue reading A Newsletter
Not a single word put on paper, or screen, up until this point. My brain is well and truly frazzled. I was sorely tempted not to write a post. However, this blog is meant to keep an honest account of my writing. Today I spent the morning playing a wonderful game of Arkham Horror with my … Continue reading Literally Nothing
I'm working on the 'final' revision of my novel. Today I wrote that tricky first scene. After writing and re-writing, and then re-re-writing the first line, I managed to get out of my own way and crack on. This is not after all a final edit, only the final revision. I'm actually pretty happy with it. However, … Continue reading First Scene Done!
