I really dislike Mondays. Not because it’s the start of the week, but because it’s so far from the next weekend! I really don’t think I’m cut out for this work thing. Although, on the positive side, I am getting a pay rise this month. Yay! Still not worth getting up for. I hate reception work. And rainy days. Ugh.
Ok, rant over.
I’ve nearly finished that A-Z game poem/story I started at the weekend. I’m just missing a line beginning with V. Hmmmm. I may also have to change a few lines – I think mentioning ‘decorations’ twice and ‘trees’ twice is a little excessive (although not together both times!)!
I used to get a dictionary.com word of the day delivered to my inbox. (I blogged about a word I got once – it meant meant forgetting the word you were looking for – I’d tell you what it was, but I’ve forgotten it!) For some unknown reason, IT have blocked this. Annoying! Anyhoo, I found another one from Wordsmith.org, I don’t like it as much, but it’s still a good tool (if I used it!). They have ‘themes’ to the words weekly – this week, it’s words about words. Cool! Today’s word is Rhopalic (silent H) – it means: (adjective): Having each successive word longer by a letter or syllable. Cool. It gives a couple of examples, but I thought I’d give it a go – writing a sentence. Not now, but sometime soon. I promise.
I’ve just realised since I’ve been back at work I’ve not got back into that oneword.com thing. Where they give you a word and you have one minute to free write using the word as inspiration. I used to love it. I need to get back into that. I felt like it was a daily work out for my creative juices. I it’s possible one of these one minute writing ‘stories’ may turn into something more… who knows?
My boyfriend and I have talked about an idea he had for a novel – but that he doesn’t want to write. Now I’ve finished Italian Infatuation, I’m tempted to do something towards that. I shouldn’t – I should go back to the first one that I was so gutted to put down in November, but the idea of this one keep popping into my head. Hmmmmmmmm.
Also, Italian Infatuation keeps popping into my head. I know I’ve said I’m going to leave it until next year, but I’m desperate to read it now, I want to see if it works on paper how it worked in my head. A thought fleeted through my head yesterday of developing it a bit more into a bigger novel, not a ‘short’ Mills & Boon one. I don’t think I will, but I like the idea of developing the secondary characters a little more than I have been able to.
