Busy Week Ahead

How typical is this. I have a very busy week this week, and last night I got a horrible cold. I’m talking Man Flu kind of horrible (yes, I fully admit to moaning too much when ill – I can’t handle being ill, I’m really not good at it 😦 ).

I do slightly blame myself, it was going to be an ok week, but then I went and got myself some free cinema tickets (like I could not get any when they’re free!!!) which has messed up my week meaning I’ve had to change shifts and move them about meaning I’m now stressing about not having enough time to do certain things and not sleeping enough to make me better. Sigh.

Still, very exciting week coming up!

Tonight is How To Get Your Book published – an event by Stylist Magazine, featuring Sophie Kinsella and Lisa Jewell. Awesome.

Tuesday is now my free cinema visit. Even better than it just being free, it’s a Jennifer Aniston film that doesn’t come out until September – The Switch. Awesome x2.

Then Wednesday is a ladies’ night at the local Runner’s Need (free champagne and physio advice for runners which I need right now) then on to Rowan Coleman’s book launch party. Awesome x4.

The only problem is that I’m feeling so rough I’m exhausted just thinking about it all 😦

Ooh, I’m now really excited about something else too. I’ve just found out (thanks IMDB) that Getting Rid of Matthew (a brilliant novel by Jane Fallon) is being made into a film – staring Jennifer Aniston. The only problem is I never really like movies when I’ve read and loved the book before. well, I generally don’t anyway.

Speaking of which, last weekend I watched The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’ve had a week to think about it, and still don’t know what I think. I think I liked it, but there was just so much missing that I thought should have been in there. But then it was long enough as it was, so adding any more would just have made it too long. And missing all that out didn’t really detract from the story, which led me to question – was there too much irrelevant stuff in the novel? Hmm.

I got chatting about NaNo on Twitter last week. I’m definitely going to do it again this year. I just need a story. I like the idea of doing something YA, and I have an idea of the characters. Well one of the three main ones I want. But don’t really know what’s going to happen. I need to read more YA books. Woop! All in the name of research.

I didn’t do any writing over the weekend, so I’m going to go and do some now.
