393 words this evening. Today has been the first Sunday in a long time where I haven’t got up and cracked on with the writing stuff. It’s Fathers Day so I went down to the caravan where my parents where and saw them this morning. Then this afternoon I played a good 75% of Gears Of War 4, completing it. I love those games and have left it far too long to play this one. It’s served to fuel a ton of ideas though. I think I’ve got some good ideas for a story I haven’t been able to get just right, but I’ve got to stick a fork through that one for the moment as I’m trying to focus on two other stories that I’d like to get done sooner rather than later.

I am getting stuck a little with PE3, so I might focus on WC2 for a few days as that one seems to be what I’m finding I’m working on easier.

Good Morning, Sunday

It feels like I haven’t done one of these in a while, what with NaNo going on I’ve been rather focused on that and have obviously been blogging daily with my progress.

I won’t focus too much on NaNoWriMo here, I’ll just say its going well and I’m seeing the parts of the story that are working better than others. When I come to edit it I’m thinking of adjusting the pacing of it and giving more of the focus of the book to one of my two protagonists. It’s an odd story because I don’t really have an antagonist, both of the protagonists could also be viewed as antagonists as well. So it’s quite an interesting story to be working on.

Something I’m going to try and do in future is a bit more gaming. I love games like GTAV, Halo, Gears Of War, Mario Kart, Arkham Knight(I’ve just brought Return to Arkham too), and last night I started getting stuck into the new DOOM game. It’s something that I really enjoy and find it opens up other parts of my brain. I’m going to try and spend an evening a week gaming and blowing off steam.

I need to be reading more as well, that’s something I’ll be picking up in the next week and trying to get a routine going. I’ve got a couple of movies and new TV shows I want to get stuck into as well. I’m falling into re-watching shows and movies, which I love, but I want to get stuck into some new shows and movies.

Right, I’m off to get some words written. I’m not expecting to knock out 2000 words in just over an hour like yesterday, but I’m going hop on a couple of online sprints and see how I do. Then, time to get stuck into Gears of War 4.

Have a good day, everyone!
