Just messin’

Today was supposed to be the start of the new regime. I was going to have a good long look at the work I already have in and the work I already have planned and then I was going to put it into some sort of order. So far, I've updated the diary for the... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – days 20 & 21

I didn't mean to take another day off. But yesterday I did a new assignment and by the time I got home something else happened to distract me from my writing: My book was published! The book was supposed to be published next year some time, but we did so well getting it ready, publication... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – days 15 & 16

Oops-a-daisy! I seem to have had another inadvertent day off.  I'm not beating myself up about it, though. I'm currently very busy and next week is looking busier. And anyway, I'm not really lagging behind either. Yesterday was spent arranging two new assignments for next week that involve (shock! horror!) leaving the house! 😱 There's also not...

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 14

I've not had much time again today, as I've been pitching for some new and different jobs as well as continuing with the existing work I have in. I only managed to add around 700 words to my running total. But I have a few more very short scenes and Act II Part II is possibly... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 13

I didn't get around to NaNo until quite late on this afternoon. I've been in correspondence with various people, including editing and proofreading clients as well as the publisher of my Cadbury book. The great news is, my book has arrived on the publisher's desk! And they're very happy with the result. I can hardly... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 8

So now I'm thinking, if I can do this in November for NaNoWriMo, why can't I do it the rest of the year as well? My daily target is 2,000 words, which means I can also have 5 days off.  My usual daily target is around 1,000 words per writing day. If I upped that... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 7

I was quite tired yesterday following the shenanigans of the previous evening, but by 5pm I'd completed my day's work quota. I'd added more than 3,000 words and I reached my first 100 pages on a proofreading job. I always like to hit the first 100 pages. At 5pm, I checked on the chickens, put... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 6

It was a long day yesterday. We visited Mom last night – she was great and in fine form – and we were set to be home at a fairly reasonable time, around 10pm. On our way down we'd seen an accident on the M42 that had just happened. One lorry had stopped, a car... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 5

We were going to visit my mom on Saturday and then stop off at Sherwood Forest, or similar, on the way back as it was going to be such a nice day. However, there was a stomach bug at the home, and visitors were asked to stay away. So we stayed in and baked instead.... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – days 3 & 4

The plan always was to work yesterday, and take today off as my first day off. Then the plan changed because the weather was supposed to be nicest yesterday. We were going to go out for the day. Then that plan changed as well and we decided to stay in. However, I decided to keep... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 – day 2

Day 2 and I'm still planning a bit while writing a bit, although my word-count did go up quite considerably this morning. NaNoWriMo is my first "job" of the day. Whether I'm planning or writing, it's the first thing to get my attention, after about an hour of admin/household stuff. The day before yesterday I... Continue Reading →

NaNoWriMo 2018 begins

And so it begins again ... I was a little late to the party this year. For the past few years I've been ready to go by the end of play on 31 October. This year, I finished most of the prep at around 1:30pm today. Eek! When I say prep, I mean my Scrivener... Continue Reading →
