Good Afternoon, 25th March 2020

Hey folks, how are we all doing?

I’ve had a couple of days off from writing, which have felt good. But I got back onto it today. I’ve written 393 of an anthology submission and 497 on the zombie book. I think I’ve also solved one of the queries the editor had for a character in zombie as well.

Trying to take a selfie when there’s a Raven in the house!

I’ve not really much more to add today. I needed those couple of days off to focus on a few other things, nothing major or ground breaking. But I think it also serves to help rest the brain a little from grinding out the work. It helps to solve a few problems if you step away a little. The trick I need to learn is when I do that, not to let it stutter my momentum. I was hitting about a 1000 words a day on zombie, so I’m happy today has been almost five hundred. Tomorrow I’ll be aiming for a 1000 before heading off to work.

Right folks, have an awesome day!

Getting Back On Track (9/2/21)

The last couple of weeks I haven’t got a lot done. Partly I was feeling unwell, but I think more of it was I was drained. Physically, Mentally, and emotionally. Just sometimes it all catches up with me and I adjust what I’m doing, moving my focus to where it needs to be. Which normally means writing is what suffers.

But, it also helps it. It’s a recharge for me. It allows that creative element of my soul rest, it lets me fill the creative well by (trying) to watch new things. I am heavily influenced by movies and TV, probably more than I realise!

It also helps me refocus. Normally when I take some time away from writing when I come back to it and I’ve got a better idea of where I am and what I need to aim for (which is something I definitely need to do!). It helps ideas grow as well. Even when I’m not writing I’m always thinking about it. There’s one idea or another head-banging in my brain and making sure I know it’s there.

I feel like I’m on the verge of getting back into the flow of it. I felt it a little on Sunday but I pulled a few extra hours at work yesterday which wore me out. I’ve not done a lot today, although I’ve added furry family member videos to YouTube today. I’ve got the next two days off, but have a few bits and pieces outside of writing to do. So I’m not planning to spend two days working on writing but I’m determined to get back on track.

There’s a whole playlist of my Furry Family members on my YouTube channel now 🙂

For now, I’m wiped out. So I’m going to watch a movie, and aim to be up nice and early tomorrow to get a good start to the day.
