Writing the Mountain


I love having a weekend free to write, apart from travel notes and a few poems I have not written all week as I was travelling and exploring new places. I have almost made up for the write-less week with over 10hrs of writing and research.

I have a whole list of websites to check and I have found two more writing opportunities. I had already printed a schedule (only took me a month to realise every writer needs one!) now it has notes scribbled all over it and I think I may be forced to put a hold on some projects.

I have already put my main manuscript down for the end of this month as I am now working on a collection of poems and several shorter submissions for publication. My writing notebook is full of scribbled notes and lists. All this work is filling me with positive energy and a feeling that I am doing the right thing. I am just a little concerned that I am going to have to account for every hour of the day until the end of March!


As a result of the busy work schedule, I may not be around too much to blog. We will see.

Putting the writing first for now.

Happy writing to you all.

  1. What is higher than a mountain? I think I maybe confronting the Matterhorn!! Schedule written (like Rimmer in Red Dwarf) could have used the preparation hour more effectively by actually writing! I expected a tough end to the month as work was extremely busy and then I went away…
    Still 11 poems and 4 short stories in 4 days might be a stretch too far… Let’s see how incredible these arms are. Thankful for the lack of painful old typewriters and postal deadlines…. Seems I’m still destined to write close to the bone!
