Writing Progress

The summer holidays are over, which means one thing – I’m able to write during the day once again!

I have finished off a chapter this morning, word count was nearly 250, so not much but I can’t get into the next chapter as I need to work on some outlines and figure their directions out.  The finished chapter isn’t on the path I imagined so I need to work out if I want to end it on a cliff hanger or if I want the reader to know exactly what it will lead to.  For now it’s an open ending.

There is a downside to daytime writing: my youngest is upstairs napping and I left my art book up there and if I go up he will wake!  So it’s back to A4 lined paper for note taking and fine tuning. I like to use an A2 pad for all the brainstorming (is it still called that or do I have to refer to it as Mind Mapping for the PC parade?).  I imagine next week will be a more organised week.

I have missed blogging on a daily basis but I think it got to a point where priorities were all wrong and so the break has done me good.

Regarding the recent published work, I am in the process of writing more articles for future newsletters as we speak, it’s nice to say I’m finally livin’ the dream!

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?
