Keep on Writing

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

Why do I avoid Writing?

Today I wrote the second scene in a chapter. It's far from perfect but I'm relatively happy with it. I still need to get to know this character a little more to be happy with the writing.  I've got the substance done now, it's just the style I want to work on. I find it … Continue reading Why do I avoid Writing?

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 … Continue reading Sewing and blogging

Anxiety

Something is going on with my anxiety today. Things are just a bit more difficult than they should be. Town was incredibly busy today and it felt as though everyone was a threat. No writing today, just anxiety. Flowy was a bit of a life saver tonight. I've no idea what  tomorrow will bring.   The … Continue reading Anxiety

Though I suppose that really isn't the purpose of the app. I'll see if it continues to work. Anyway, I'm pleased with myself today because as well as tidying up … Continue reading I’m a Happy Writer

I was looking at the location of an ice rink, as set forth by the rules of this month writers forum. My mum loved Granby Halls, she used to go roller skating all the time. Looking into the history of the place it turns out it was built with … Continue reading Research

The Lobsters of Social Media

Today's work on my novel was cursory at best,  just a little bit of shifting around, I'm trying not to become too embarrassed at my clumsy first draft. Wednesdays are always busy. Story & Rhyme time in the morning and Crafty in the afternoon. We have got a load of really nice fabrics in today which needed … Continue reading The Lobsters of Social Media

Today I Crushed the Patriarchy

On the bus ride home from Crafty there where two obnoxious men (I later learned they where thirty) making themselves the centre of attention. I heard choice lines, over my music, such as 'Sixteen? Legal, that's perfect' and 'which one of you is the good one and which is the naughty one.' I was feeling uncomfortable … Continue reading Today I Crushed the Patriarchy

Sleepy

The days have been way too full recently. Story and Rhyme time this morning, afternoon at Crafty Sew & So, then Zumba in the evening. I only managed half of Zumba because my asthma acted up after half an hour. I did a very small amount of revising  a set of instructions at Crafty, but … Continue reading Sleepy
