This week has been a bit of a write off because I’ve not got much done. It’s been a prime example of life messing up with my writing. I’ve not been that well and I’ve had some quite tough days at the day job in addition to some everyday life irritations that keep popping up. I seem to be having one good week and then one bad week with writing at the moment. I’ve written maybe a 1000 words of fiction which bearing in mind some of the walls I’ve hit this week I’m not too disappointed about. It’s not just about the writing though, I have done a little editing on my later part of the year project which I showed an excerpt to a fellow blogger who loved it! 😀 that made my day 🙂 and I’ve worked on a couple of future blog posts, I’ll have a surprise for you in one of them, a little change from my normal format 😉
Tomorrow night is going to be a movie night around some good friends of mine and Sunday I am taking my Grandad to spend the week with his sister so by the time that I get back itll be late in the afternoon but if I’m not too tired then I’ll try to get some fiction written.
I’ve had my ups and downs recently but next week I will be getting into a routine with writing. With some of the kind words that I am receiving here I am feeling a little expectation beginning to weigh down on me so I want to get some fiction written, editing, proof read and once it is all polished up then we’ll get it out into the world for everyone to see.
I’d just want to mention a film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. This was a pretty good film but some people who I’ve spoken to about it have said that the Swedish version is much better so I think I’ll have to get it and see. In my limited experience of film remakes in this sense the American version is rarely better than the original.
I’m also watching Predators as I’m writing this post and it’s given me a few ideas for a story that I’ve had in my head for a few months now that I may scribble some notes down for before I go to bed.
Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol still hasn’t hooked me in the way that makes me want to turn the pages but I’ve not got to the magical Hundred page mark yet so there’s still time.
