My Hat Fell Off

After spending the afternoon looking forward to writing more on the novel, once my children were in bed, tonight’s post should have been talking lots of progress but low and behold my writing hat fell off! It goes on every evening and it’s like my work uniform, without it on the work does not happen.

To be fair I had a terrible night’s sleep last night (4 or so hours, that’s not been done in a long time) so it was probably my brain, who teamed up with gravity, that ensured the hat would not stay put. I should shout at my brain but she is sleepy and has already said sorry so I can’t stay mad at her can I?

I was meant to have tried some flash fiction tonight, suggested by other bloggers, but will try again tomorrow night.

Night night readers, be kind to your brains and let them sleep if they need it otherwise they wake up all cranky and make you pay the following day.

N.B – The term ‘writing hat’ is what I use when I get my mind into writing mode in case you were wondering.  I wish I had a big hat like in the first image but if it ended up in my household the cats would shred it and my children would try and sit in it!

I am writer, writer am I. Mum of 2 cats and 2 children. Wife of James of Tameside. Delving deeper, blogging is new to me but writing isn't. I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories, they came very easily to me. I studied Screenwriting for Film and TV at university and gained a 2:1 BA honours for it but then never did anything else with it. I struggle a lot with motivating myself and with now having 2 cats plus kids that motivation went right out of the window....up until recently. A friend had suggested starting a blog and so I set up on WordPress and my motivation came flying back into my life like it had always been there! There are days where I'm either too tired to write but I am always thinking of my main project - writing a children's novel. So that's progress right?
