Easy does it

Today was a little calmer. I’m still without my laptop and it’s more than a little infuriating. My mum’s very kindly loaned me some money and I ordered a shiney new laptop a couple hours ago. 

Today I wrote a little post about a quilt I made for my niece’s second birthday. Actual numbers are less than accurate as the mobile app does not display a wordcount.

I lied

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 appear at some point along the line.

Word Count Update

Getting back into the swing of things I’m writing my wordcount for the day. First off I started a draft for next Sunday’s Crafty Sew & So’s blog, all about the upcoming Moneta Party.

Secondly, I started writing a post for Today I Made… all about a failed attempt at a dress. It needs a few pictures and polishing up before I post it, it may well be coming along in the next couple of days.

Today’s Word Count: 424

 

Renewing Those Forgotten Goals

There was a plan to have finished revising my novel by Christmas. I’m still lingering somewhere around the 15000-word mark. Any writing I’ve been doing has been blogging for Crafty Sew & So.

Delving into sewing projects leaves very little time to write. It’s incredibly satisfying completing projects, then parading about the place in my wears. Having a tactile thing to hold for my hard work is a world away from sitting at my computer screen or scribbling in a notebook.

So I am determined to chisel out that time for writing again and renew my efforts to documents said writing in this blog. but tonight I’m going to settle down with my

However, tonight I’m going to settle down with my cats, a cup o’ tea and a couple of homemade biscuits.

Sewing and blogging

Just a little blog post today as it’s been a very good but exhausting. I had a great day out at a blogger’s meet up hosted by Sew Essential. It was so much fun! I started a sweet little embroidery project and had a lovely time chatting with fellow stitcher’s. I will have to rest for a very long time after this hectic week. I wrote my other blog today, and that’s it.

Almost there…

Today’s word count is not bad at all. I ended up writing far more on my Today I Made… post than I’ve ever written before.

I did not manage to go through the whole of the printed novel today as I anticipated I would yesterday. however I did get through two chapters. There are lots of new settings, characters and plot points that are now documented and organised!

Tomorrow I will hopefully get through a few more chapters. I’m around a third of the way through and enjoying reading my own writing so that is no bad thing.
