Sunday Success


I’ve written over 1,250 words on the manuscript and set to work on 3 short pieces of writing. One is just a synopsis, the others are taking shape.

It has snowed all day but not heavily, it’s melting snow more than sticking. Unless it changes overnight I will have work tomorrow, the next few hours on the laptop will be working not writing.

It feels better when I’m writing. I feel good. Time disappears. I write in stretches over an hour or 20 minute slots. I don’t feel rushed or pressured, I think without anxiety, an instinctive me takes control.

Me, the writer is also going to spend the rest of the evening filling the jar with sand & water, packing boxes and de-junking! Maybe I can turn it into a manual someday! It will be my 17th move and my last! (For many years at least!)

Write Away!


I have woken early.
I have been awake for an hour.
The laptop is still on the floor beside the bed I am in.
I have wasted all that writing time.
Correction half of it… On Facebook – the taker of time!
All that word count I could have achieved before the day started!
I’m already chasing my tail, or I would be if I could just get up!
Time to go and wash the reusable-coffee-cup.

Get fixed straight away today. Write first thing if you can. Especially on a weekend where our jars get filled with lots of sand and water!

Off to write, which I know I should have done ‘write’ away!
