Writing Project Three

With Project Robot, I’ve previously mentioned that it needs a lot of reshuffling around and a lot of work put into it.  At the minute, I feel like I need to let it rest and let my brain do the thinking so will shelve this project for a later date.

Which means I’m moving straight to project three – my favourite! It’s the story I’ve had for years and is inspired by my eldest.  I’m very excited to be editing as it does need doing but I feel it’s closer to completion which encourages me to get a move on with it.

How are your projects coming along?

Fingers In Other Pies

…is probably the best way to describe tonight. I haven’t sat and watched TV, nor have I wasted time browsing the internet. No no. Tonight I have been expanding my horizons and have written an article for someone else. Thought I’d give it a go. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain so I dedicated this evening to it.

If I can continue with this positivity with my motivation to write I’ll be able to free up some more fingers for more pies.

Pies = projects, not ‘Greggs’

It’s Saturday Night, So Surely It’s A Night Off?

My family and I went out today and had one of those afternoons where we were all on our feet.  I have just put my youngest to bed and cannot for the life of me be bothered writing my book tonight.

I will probably learn the ropes more with WordPress and just see what other bloggers are up to.  Anyone want me to have a read of their work?

Wish I had a milk steamer at home so I could indulge in proper lattes, not just hot milk in the pan poured into some coffee granules.  Let’s see if this super strong coffee will change my mind about the writing.

One Of Those Nights

Today I have written roughly 800 words in total, dotted throughout the day but I’ve had a lot of odd jobs to catch up on this evening so needed to make them a priority tonight.  I should in theory have more time at the weekend to do some writing.

I have wrote about a character who is a bit lost and needs some guidance so he turns to his brother for help.  The end of the last paragraph I wrote is a bit dark and foreboding and I can’t help but think that I’m going to have to be a bit brutal with some characters but I think of my audience and am trying my hardest to keep it as light-hearted as possible.

I have to be realistic with this, there will be nights where I may not be able to write anything either on here or my story, I have a gym membership and still like to go so I need to fine tune my work pattern, give myself breaks, allow for mishaps to happen but as long as I can keep this momentum going the motivation will still be there to continue.


As a side note I realise that I’ve ended 2 out of 3 paragraphs with BUT statements, see how I’m convincing myself it’s all good still? Well it is because I’m doing the writing, not just thinking of it in my head.  Woo!

ARGH I’ve left It Too Late!

It’s coming up to my bedtime and have been checking out other bloggers tonight so have not done any progress on my book.  I think I’m OK with that, I’m further with it now than say 3 weeks ago when it was all thoughts and ideas.

I have been telling people about this blog and it’s making the writing that bit more real.  I feel this is really motivating and therapeutic.
