That’s it. Another month is over. Or will be in 12 hours anyway. So how’s this month been? I’m a year older, which actually wasn’t bad. I feel like I’ve not done much writing, but looking at my word count I really have. I’ve not done any of my course though. That’s bad. I need to work on that.
I was about to do a round up of my goals for July, but I can’t possibly do that until the month has actually finished. I may get an idea in my head and write a few thousand words this afternoon (I know, more unlikely than man landing on Mars this year!).
I spend some time last night starting to write ideas for ‘Holiday’ on cards. I decided I need to get the ideas straight in my head for it, as I’ve got so many pieces of paper and word documents with ideas – I need them all in the same place. I thought I’d use a card per idea, then when it’s all out, it will be easy to take a bit out, see what’s missing etc. I’m going to have a story board above my bed. I would love an office I could do it in there, but until I win the lottery or get a MASSIVE pay rise/new job I’ll have to stick with my room. *sigh*
I finished that excerpt of the new Adele Parks novel, guess what? I want to read the whole thing. There’s not a burning desire, but a spark of desire that’s strong enough to make me £7 worse off in the next month or two.
I was looking for a new book to start last night – not an easy job when half my seven foot bookcase is filled with unread books. I stumbled on a Lee Child novel ‘Bad luck and trouble’ which sounds interesting. Not my usual chick lit genre, but hopefully the kind of thriller that will make me question why I don’t read them more. I’m a massive John Grisham fan and have a stack of his books I have to read (luckily my step mum is too and hands them down to me!) but until recently I’ve never read anything like this. I’m glad I started. So, I’ll start reading this novel and let you know how I get on. I’ve heard very good things about him so am really looking forward to it.
I am determined to do a blog this weekend. Determined to. It will be Sunday as I’m really busy on Saturday, but I really want to get in the habit of writing A. during weekends and B. at home not just work. Let’s see how I get on…
