6th of September 2020

Good evening folks, only 187 words today, that was before work. After work I’ve been sorting a few things and chilling out in preparation to add a few pieces of furniture to my office.

Although tomorrow will be busy with that I’ll still be finding time to write, and I’d really like to get some editing done as well. We’ll see though, although I’ve had a productive month (details here on my Buy Me A Coffee page, free to read folks). This is a little bit of a change of how I’m doing things. Buy Me A Coffee is a site that lets people support people whose work they enjoy, kinda like Patreon, but different. I’ve popped a few random posts up there (which later got shared here as well), but from here on out I’ll be writing a post that gives numbers and some insight into them for the previous month. Will this be the format from here on out? Who knows. I’m trying to keep open minded and fluid with things like this, so we’ll see how it goes. Any money I receive does go straight back into writing.

This blog though, will continue. I pretty much get views each day, but I always get a jump when a new post goes live. And It will never be behind a paywall. I’ve been blogging for over a decade now, I enjoy it and quite frankly I like the journal type format that this has evolved into.

Right, well I wasn’t expecting this post to be much more than a ‘hey I wrote a little bit today’ but there you go. I will just end by asking you all go over to Facebook and checkout Stefan’s Daily Gaming, this video in particular. I guested over there and Stefan and myself play some Mario Kart. It was a lot of fun and a great way to blow off some steam. While you’re on Facebook, maybe go over to my page and give me a like too 🙂

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!

Ready, Set, GO!

It’s sunday, which for me now means writing. I’d like to have this short story I’m working on done today and I’d like to have started researching a blog post article I’ve been thinking about writing for a while. I will also play a bit of Mario Kart and watch some more of Game of Thrones series one, but those two are a more likely for this evening.

Today is about productive creativity. I’ve got Monday and Tuesday off this week but aside from a Write-In with my Kent NaNo group I’m not expecting to get more words written then I’d normally would, I’m actually going to chill out. I’m meeting my sister tomorrow after the Write-In and on tuesday after a visits to the dentist I’m off to the cinema to hopefully finally see Edge of Tomorrow.

But before all that, I have words that need to be expelled from my mind at hopefully a decent and healthy rate.

What Ever you’re all doing today, I hope its all fun:)
