Good Morning, Sunday 6th of December 2020

Good morning all. It feels like ages since I did one of this Sunday morning posts. I love working shift work now but when I wasn’t I’d get up on a Sunday, sit with my laptop and a cup of tea and write a post that’ll get the day started off. I have tea, but am in my office and not the living room and as my desktop is working this morning I’m writing on that.

Yesterday was a zero word day, which I hate, but I’m not beating myself up about. I had a long work shift that Started with the rooster and by the time I got home, had a bath and dinner, I was beyond wiped out. Although I did more hours when I was working in the second hand car trade I work harder in a supermarket. I knew it would be hard, but I wasn’t expecting it to be as demanding on my body as I was expecting. That is something I love about it though, it means I have to push myself that bit harder and at the end of my shift, I feel like I’ve earn’t my wage each day. When I have a long shift though, it’ll be a zero word count day and as my week progresses I have got to adjust my goals for that week accordingly, and take into consideration when my shift is each day. It’s a whole new way of balancing my life which I’ve never had to contend with, but I’m looking forward to working it all out as it’ll give me a whole load of new skills that I either haven’t had before of have been dormant.

Not only one of my favourite scenes from Terminator 2 but one of my favourite scenes of all time!

I am off today, a rare Sunday for me. So I’m going to get some work done. I’m tempted to leave Black Blood for the day and work on Penal Earth. I’ve have over a month working almost exclusively on Black Blood, and in the past I’ve noticed that when I work exclusively on one project like that I can get into a little bit of a rut. So I’m going to look at Penal Earth and get some work done on that one. I’m nearing the endgame with that one now, I’d like to say I’m close to having it wrapped up but I can’t say that just yet.

I’d like to get rolling with my final changes on the Zombie book as well. Having seen the latest update on the artwork I’m keen to get it ready for the editor, who is booked for early next year. So I have time but I’d like to have it done by Christmas.

Okay, time to get to the words. I hope everyone has a fantastic day! I’ll let you all know how I did.

  1. The good thing about having a physically demanding job is you don’t have to spend time going to the gym afterwards.

    I had an interview with the editor of an upcoming vampire anthology I’m in, The Vampire Connoisseur. The story excerpts and author interviews are being posted on FB and also on YT. I’m embarrassed by my Minnie Mouse voice, but it’s cool to listen to the other authors.

    Good luck on your Penal Earth writing and your Zombie edits!
