Woohoo New Laptop

I am so fricking excited to have a shiny new laptop! I had an Asus Chromebook for a while.

Productive Day

Today I stuck to my routine! In the morning I sat at my computer and revised the first scene of my novel. Each revision gets a little easier. I did my first reading last Tuesday at writing group.

My week has been a whirlwind of activity. I cannot think of a single day in which I  had time to rest, never mind write! I can feel my mind becoming overloaded. Manic bursts of energy followed by pure exhaustion. Days rush past with unnatural speed. Tight cracking jaw,  the frustrating insistence of a tension headache. … Continue reading …And Breathe

The tutor told said to make it as shocking as we wanted. I am being ever so brave and bringing in the first paragraph of my novel. … Continue reading The Hook?
