Good evening folks, today I had a movie and writing day. Okay so it was more movies than writing. I’ve had a few busy days where I’ve been getting a lot sorted and I was wiped out. So I watched the Lord of the Rings trilogy and a couple of other movies, and did a little writing.

Something I’ve realised is that I’ve already re-written a fair bit of the vampire book I’ve been working on. So I’ve looked over the bit I’ve been rewriting the last couple of days and merged it together. I’m going to go through it over the next few days and see where I am properly with it all though. I did write 771 words today though. Getting into editing the word count will drop but that’s part and parcel of the process. My head isn’t in the right place to be working on multiple pieces at the moment so I’m not going to try to do so.

I’ve got a busy week with work coming up but I’m going to try and make sure I’m working on these projects each day. I am thinking about goals through the rest of the year but am not comfortable with sharing them at the moment.

Right folks, thats it for now. I can hear a bed calling me so I’m off to it.

A Little Update

I’m having a bit of a chill out today as I was at Wireless Festival yesterday and I am more than¬†a little shattered, although it was well worth it ūüôā So I doubt there will be much writing done today but I thought I’d just pop up a little update.

I’ve just started reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury which I’m rather looking forward to getting stuck into.¬† I really need to be getting some of the classic Science Fiction read, although saying that I’m sure the late Mr.Bradbury never considered himself a genre writer, but I do need to start reading more of the¬†classics.¬† I’ve got a couple of Phillip K. Dick’s novels which I’m looking forward¬†to reading as well as a Arthur C.Clarke novel so plenty to read.

This week I am determined to get cracking with some fiction again.  As I said in a previous post I am in between projects at the moment but I think I may do what I did with NaNoWriMo and just start writing something.  I did a have good idea how to tweak a character which I hope will give him more depth.

Something that I need to do is re-watch theLord Of The Ringsmovies as Owen does reference them a fair bit in what he writes and it’s been a while since I saw those movies.
