322 – the number of untitled blogs today

Damn.  Damn, Damn, Damn.  I’ve just worked out I’m not going to meet my goal number of blogs this month, unless I blog twice in one day and both days at the weekend.  Not going to happen.  Especially as I’m working the second job BOTH weekend days! Sigh.  Oh well, I’m still writing regularly and quite a lot so I’m happy.

I know I wrote the other day about my excitement about a new book that’s just come out by Sophie Kinsella.  I think I did anyway.  I really want it to come out in paperback before my holiday in September so I can take it and read it then.  Yesterday I found out that Jane Green has a new book coming out soon too.  I love Jane Green.  She’s in my top three favourite authors (Sophie Kinsella and Marian Keyes being the other two).  In fact I might go out on a limb and say she is my favourite author.  I read one of her books once that changed my life.  Not in a major way, but it made me realise something which led to something else.  So she does awesome chick lit, but I actually gained from it too.

I would love it if one day someone got excited (other than family and myself) that I was releasing a new book.  Imagine knowing someone was looking forward to reading something you wrote.  That’s my dream.

But it’s a long way away.  Short term I’ve made a decision about work that is going to screw up my writing time I have during the day.  But as I don’t seem to be doing too much at the moment it’s not too big a problem.  I just hope I’ll find time to keep blogging.

Haha, if someone had have told me six months ago I’d be a regular blogger, I would have laughed at them.  I knew pretty much nothing about blogs etc and would never have believed I’d start doing it too, let alone enjoy it.  And an avid reader of other people’s.  Funny how things happen.  Having this blog definitely inspires me to write, whether it be on here or actual creative writing. 

I wish something would inspire me to do some of my next assignment for my course.  I’m not really inspiring myself.  Maybe I need to choose another topic, maybe this one just isn’t interesting me enough and I could get on better if I choose something that will interest me more.  I need to do some brainstorming.  Sigh.

  1. I understand the feeling. I started up my noveling blog, Uninvoked, in the hopes that I would be able to get more people to read my writing. I’m actually quite satisfied with the progress. People are beginning to stop by and say things, and every time they do I put a linky back to their work on the post they comment on so free advertising too. ^^

    I’m sure if you keep working at it people will look forward to reading your writing. Just remember it will never happen if you don’t finish. What ever project your working on, no matter how long or difficult or hard it is, finish at least the first draft. It doesn’t matter how horrible it is as long as its finished.

  2. Thanks both for your comments. It’s great to see people that have visited before back for more – hope I’m entertaining you.

    CJ – you’re right – my regular blogs on here have pushed my work count this month pretty high, enough to reach my goal for this month, so it’s all good. I just wish I could make myself ‘creative write’ as much as I can ‘blog write’.

    Univoked – it IS great knowing people are reading your stuff and it interests them enough to comment. Good idea with the linky thing. I may start that when I can work out how to do it!!! That’s exactly the advice I need – I will get nowhere if I don’t finish anything. I need to keep that in the forefront of my mind!
