I only wrote the first couple of sentences of a chapter today. I'm finding it very difficult to get started again. The screen hurts my eyes. Yesterday we did the first stock take at Crafty. I spent the day counting buttons. It all sounds very fun, but after the first five tubes or so my … Continue reading Ho-Hum
I am a creature of habit, or perhaps more accurately, habit and routine are important aspects of my recovery. The times in my life when my routine is disrupted, inevitably lead to heightened anxiety. That has not changed through my recovery. What has changed is the way I deal with that anxiety. I now know … Continue reading Disrupted Routine.
Today marks just over one month of me writing something, more or less, everyday. Even if it is only a brief smattering on this blog. I find the self congratulatory, and just a tiny bit smug approach works best for me, therefore I present to you this months grand total: 7,666
I've had a lovely, if utterly exhausting trip to see my husbands family in Wales. it's the biggest, most anxiety provoking thing I have attempted in over two years. I survived it. I also learned that a lot of family in Wales read my blog. Hi Guys. I will probably natter on about it a bit … Continue reading I’m back!
The heady mix of pilates, therapy and steroids yesterday meant I was too exhausted, both physically and emotionally to write, or do much of anything else for that matter. Going to the dentist this morning did not improve matters. In the past I've been prescribed Diazepam for when I'm getting work done at the … Continue reading Nope, No Words
I just love a good spreadsheet, but you know what I love more than a spreadsheet? A Pie Chart! Today I embarked up the noble task of analysing my novel to within an inch 0f its creative life. I've always needed a good visual for me to understand something properly. The steady methodical charting of characters, settings … Continue reading All of the Charts!
Today I spent a lot of time using Ctrl+F function (find and replace). As i've been writing I've thought of ways to enriched my world a little through status's, titles and more cohesive names. It's the easiest editing I've ever done and makes me a lot happier with the diegesis of the world. I sat … Continue reading Revision Day!
I got up nice and early to go to pilates at the local Memorial Hall. it was lovely and not too intense, probably due to the fact I was the youngest there by about thirty years. Though the more experienced ladies there did put me to shame with their core strength. After crashing out a … Continue reading Boom! Wrote more of my novel today
As predicted, I spent most of the day, after my dental check up, curled up on the sofa. Snuggled under two blankets and listening to a good audio book, Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch. My Husband has been supplying me with regular cups of tea. It was only a couple of hours ago when I managed … Continue reading The dentist could have gone better
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
