Good Morning, 1st of August 2020

Good morning, folks. How are we all doing today?

I’m going to try and get a few bits and pieces done today. I’ve got a tonne of emails to work my way through. I’m tired of seeing so many emails in the inbox and it means I’m missing emails I need to be dealing with in good time.

So thats one goal.

I’m also going to be editing. I’m making okay progress with this main edit, which is Penal Earth, so I’m going to aim for a good day with that one. Last night I said I was going to try for one chapter done today, but I’ve had a change of plans so I’ve got a lot more time to make the most of. So I’m going for five chapters today. It feels a little intimidating, but I’m going for it.

That’s another goal.

My working space for the day.

Finally I’ve got a drabble to write to submit to an anthology I’ve been invited to. When I got this invite it made my day, it’s super flattering but also hits my ego a little. Although I have a lot of insecurities I do have an ego, it might not be that big but it’s there. It’s also a big challenge to write a drabble. A hundred word story takes a certain skill, and thankfully I do have experience with these flash fiction pieces. I’ve got a number of stories in the anthology 84 Stories 84 Words which are all stories which have only 84 words in. So having a hundred to play with is almost a luxury! But still a challenge. I’m looking forward to it, it’s something I can get my teeth stuck into and hopefully have some fun with it.

That’s three goals. Let’s see how I do at the end of the day.
