I’ve been really good today. For a while, I’m embarrassed to say, I’ve been wondering what, were and how a semi colon should be used. I imagine it’s something I learnt at school, but just can’t remember. As a writer I should know, so I googled ‘Use of Semi Colon’ and found this great link. So now I know. Only another 1,000 grammar and punctuation things I need to learn. It’s a start though.
I’ve also done something bad. Well, good, but also bad. Only bad because I know I’m going to regret it. I was chatting with a girl from work about how you can download books online, and how that would be a great idea for at work as we’re sat at computers with nothing to do between phone calls and/or visitors coming in (I work on a reception/switchboard). So, today I looked into it, and found something even better. Free books. Yes, that’s right, free books. Wooop. From here. So, I’ve started a new book. Good, more reading. Bad, I’ll be reading instead of writing. At least it’s all going towards being a writer anyway.
I wonder when you start calling yourself a writer? Is it when you’ve written a book? An article? Or when you’ve had it published? Or should people consider themselves writers when they write ANYTHING? If that’s the case, I should call myself a writer now, cause I write quite a lot (I’ll get round to finding out how many words I wrote last month and the rest of my May round up tomorrow). I don’t feel like one though.
Maybe I will when I get this silly second assignment done. I know I’m only calling it silly because it’s dragging out. I WILL get it done over the next two days (HOLIDAY days). I’m writing my list now of what I’m going to do – I think I’ll need to get up normal working time to get everything done. damn.
I know I’ve got a hundred more things to say, but without a list, I can’t remember them.
