South Stack Lighthouse

Day Five: A trip to the Lighthouse Ragged and wild, I felt at home. Seagulls soar below, dark wings arched. Uneven steps narrow and worn. The Lighthouse white and sturdy against the rough seas. Dark sprawling patches of water like the shadow of a Kraken. Tides meeting, white waves crashing against placid waters. A thrill … Continue reading South Stack Lighthouse

Writing Through The Asthma

I am once again on antibiotics for a chest infection and steroids for my asthma. This is my morning lot of medication. However, I have been able to work a fair bit on my novel. I've made a little rewards chart for wordcount goal I reach.  For the first 2100 words, I get a little … Continue reading Writing Through The Asthma

A Bit Of A Catch Up

I am slowly returning to the world of the living. Despite spending the majority of the day either coughing or sneezing my brain is creaking into gear. I'm continuing to write down descriptions of locations using sound, sight, smell, taste and feel.  Since I last updated I've written seven locations, 1133 words. Today's Word Count 521

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 … Continue reading Renewing Those Forgotten Goals

My synopsis is falling into place

I think I've managed to craft some sort of synopsis. It makes a lot more sense than any previous drafts. Ideally I'd finish this revision of my novel before trying to get this done. However, as I want to send off my novel for a couple of competitions at the end of the month, it's just … Continue reading My synopsis is falling into place

Boom! Wrote more of my novel today

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
