At the moment I am pretty annoyed with myself (for the second time in a week, but lets not go into the getting too drunk story!). I’ve been at home three nights this week and done nothing towards my writing course. I go home with lots of enthusiasm, but once I’ve got home and eaten I kind of loose it. I guess it doesn’t help that I get home around 7.30pm. I didn’t do much last weekend either. I need to snap out of this and get on with some writing.
I am going to the Museum of London tonight. Whether I will write about it or not, it sounds like a fun thing to do. Oh god, I sound like a geek. I’m not a geek. (There can’t be two geeks in my relationship!). I’m going to write about it regardless of whether I submit that for the writing course or not. It will be good practice and the more I do the better I’ll get. And if I pull my finger out I’ll send my assignment off and get some expert advice to help with that.
I walked past a bookshop today and saw a Marion Keyes book I’ve not got. I was going to go back at lunch and buy it, but decided I wouldn’t get it today, but ‘reward’ myself when I’ve sent my 1st assignment in. Reward as I LOVE Marion Keyes’s books. Plus, if I bought it today there is no way I’d be able to do anything else for the next few days as I’d just be reading that. Although that might be a good thing as I’m pretty sure the man will spend most of the weekend on the Wii. I am going to have to get into Guitar hero if I ever want to see him. Maybe I won’t then I can write when he’s playing on that. Who says you should write with no distractions? Ha ha!
Speaking of Marion Keyes – that’s who I want to be like. Or Jane Green. I love their books and can’t put them down when I read them. Actually Sophie Kinsella is like that too (need to go and see the Shopaholic film – it can’t be as good as the book though). I want to write books that people can’t put down. That stop everything else in their lives because they just have to read. That make people want to read quickly to get to the end, but also want the book to go on forever. That’s why I want to write.
Just realise I never read these blogs before I post them. Is that a good or bad thing? I’m scared if I read them I’ll over analyse and take forever reading and re reading them. I’ll start re reading tomorrow. Time to go now.
Museum (and geekyness) here I come.
