16th Of September 2019

Hi folks, the weekend was as I expected and busy. I didn’t get much done at the write-in but I wasn’t expecting to. Come November it’ll be a different story.

I did read through more of CS1 at the write-in and now just have to collect all my notes and start mapping out what needs to be added. I probably won’t be working on it too much this week, simply because I won’t have the time. I think that’s a good thing though. It’ll give me time to think it over and see how it feels seeing as I’m able to let it rest a little.

Onto today though. I wrote about 600 words on the fanfic piece and I’m pretty happy with that. This is my fourth of fifth attempt at getting this done and I like to think I’ve got a good feel for it this time. I was a little stuck the last time I looked at it but did find a way through when I was working on it today.

Reading wise, I’m still reading Christopher Law’s Chaos Tales Vol. 1. I listened to Dirty Deeds 2 by Armand Rosamilia last week and loved it! This series has me hooked well and truthfully now.

I’m gonna wrap it up here. I’m going to aim to get closer to that 1000 words tomorrow.

13th of September 2019

Good evening folks, I’m just writing a quick post tonight. It’s been a bit of a slow week with writing. I’ve had a busy non-writing week, and I think the weekend is going to be like that as well.

I did attend A write-in on Wednesday, and have another one Sunday which is a bit of a surprise one but I’m looking forward to it. I will admit to being a touch wiped out today. I hit a wall of exhaustion about 3pm and psyched myself up and cracked on with the last few hours of the working day. Then I came home and cleaned the henhouse out because I won’t have time over the rest of the weekend.

I’ll admit to flailing a lot the last couple of weeks. I’ve got to get back on the wagon as it were. I’ve finished reading through CS1 and have a few ideas of what I want to add. I have been writing a few words on the fan fiction piece but if I’m honest I feel a little like I’m adrift as opposed to having my sails out and picking up the wind. I need to sit down and really figure out the details of what I want to do exactly with CS1. I do have ideas, I have notes scattered everywhere. I need to collect them all and put them into one file and figure out where they need to go.

This was meant to be a short post….. but hey! It’s me!

A super quick post tonight. Yesterday I didn’t do much editing on CS1, instead I started reading through to refresh my memory of the story and characters. I was going to do more tonight but the evening got away from me a little, and I kind of didn’t feel it tonight. I had the urge to just write so I knocked out a few words on the fan fiction piece. 760 in all.

That’s it for now. I’m going to read for a while and then get some sleep.

Good Morning, Sunday 8th of September 2019

Good morning folks. I’ve not done a lot of writing the last couple of days. I did write 668 on the fanfic I started last week but yesterday was just one of those days where I couldn’t find the time to get anything done.

Friday night I went with my girlfriend and my buddy Stefan (Stefan’s Daily Gaming) and his partner to see IT Chapter 2. It was really good. I think I liked the first of the two films a little better but as a whole its a good story and I like what they’ve tweaked from the book. I know with adaptations you’ll never be able to hit all the notes a book does but I think with this one they’ve got it spot on. For me these films aren’t scary, I like them but they don’t make me squirm in my seat, and there wasn’t any real jump scares that got me with this one. I’m not taking anything away from the two movies, horror is very subjective as we all fear different things and although I love these films, they don’t rattle me like The VVitch and The Ritual did. I think I’ve learnt with Horror movies in particular that if I re-watch them they don’t get to me, but if I don’t then they’ve had an impact on me.

Right, back to writing. I’m going to spend the bulk of the day editing on CS1 one with the odd dive into the fanfic piece. I’ve got a lot of work to do with the opening of CS1 which I think will follow through with the rest of the book, but we’ll see.

I just want to wrap up by talking about a couple of audiobooks I’ve been listening to. Firstly the first three books of Chuck Buda‘s Son of Earp series of supernatural westerns. I’ve really enjoyed these three books, and I never thought I’d say that about a western! but Buda has spun me around on them. They’re about the teenage son of the legendary Wyatt Earp and he’s life as he tried to become the man he wants to be. Well worth checking out.

The other one I want to talk about is Dirty Deeds by Armand Rosamilia. This one is a crime thriller about a man who is paid to kill children, but there’s a twist to what he does. I really liked this one. Rosamilia manages to craft a really deep story dealing with a really dark topic while keeping a good sense of humour in it. If you like your crime thrillers, please check it out.

That’s it for now. I’m off to get some writing done.
