This is how my Scrivener binder for the project management series was looking when I started work on it on Tuesday. Tuesday I had a lot to do on Tuesday, so while the intention was to write at least a chapter, I only managed part of Chapter 4. In fact, I wrote 843 new words.… Continue reading The week so far
Image by Alexander Stein from Pixabay I had a lovely Easter break, something I planned on due to being so busy again just recently. I even finished work at a respectable time on Thursday in order to enjoy the full weekend. Saying that, I did have my first Covid jab on Friday, and fortunately the… Continue reading Plan for April 2021

I did manage to read a few chapters of a book I want to review soon, but I didn't do any sewing. Walking However, on Saturday, after we'd done the shopping – early… Continue reading Dream
I was late again to my desk on Friday morning, but I had done a lot of work already on the mobile phone, both in bed and over breakfast. For example, I checked emails, the bank and social media, and I did another job search. At my desk, the first job I did was an… Continue reading Pomodoros rule!
Image by Monoar Rahman Rony from Pixabay I've said it before and I'll no doubt say it again, but Thursdays really are quite tired days. Mind you, I may have still been catching up after my 4am finish the other night. However, when the dog woke me up yesterday morning, I was very happy to… Continue reading Writing & admin (and a mini rant)
(Image by Please Don't sell My Artwork AS IS from Pixabay) This week seems to be dashing by in a bit of a blur ...

An addition this week was proofreading in from Hong Kong that arrived first… Continue reading Ghostwriting, proofreading & an interview
Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay A massive thank you to all who sent me birthday wishes on Tuesday. Much of the day was spent acknowledging and thanking people individually.

Image by Jeevan Singla from Pixabay It's my birthday today. I've had some very nice presents, including some useful software for work. And we have birthday cake for tea. We like birthday cake, and we've decided that birthday cake shouldn't be just for birthdays, much like we've decided that pancakes shouldn't just be for Pancake… Continue reading Happy Birthday to me!
Image by Karolina Grabowska from Pixabay After all of my planning work last week, the new regime starts today. Before I started any of it, however, I had some admin to look after. First of all, the poet's COVID jabs letter came through and he booked both of his appointments. Both of those went into my… Continue reading New regime
Image by ElisaRiva from Pixabay I've been a bit preoccupied this week. Not navel-gazing or anything like that. Just trying to sort everything in my head into some sort of workable order. It's been a bit chaotic in there of late. Mostly I've been working on the new book series. It was very much in… Continue reading Brain chaos
I love using Scrivener. I think it's an ace tool for all aspects of your writing, including if you decide to self-publish and/or produce book bundles. Once I have my outline, I transfer it to the index cards on Scrivener. The index cards are in chapter order, the chapters are in beat order, and the… Continue reading Planning in Scrivener
Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay Tuesday afternoon was more ghostwriting. I was late getting started with it, due to date work and scheduling a couple of blog posts in advance. But by the time I got around to it, I'd run out of steam. I was left with a choice: Stare at a blank… Continue reading Time management
I had a much better day yesterday. 10-project planner Once I'd written yesterday's blog, which was 1,293 words before I even started anything else, I moved on to my 10-project planner to add in all the projects I'm working on first. These are: ghostwriting gig (63,000 words in total, 40,000 for January) The Beast Within… Continue reading A better day
Happy New Year to everyone! Let's hope we kick this virus in 2021, so that life can return to normal. I had a lovely long Christmas holiday, almost three whole weeks in the end. And while we were still very busy, I also did quite a lot of navel-gazing. I've been cogitating over the way… Continue reading Welcome, 2021
