Good Morning, 17th of September 2020

Good morning, folks! I hope you’re all well?

I decided to take a me day yesterday after work. I did a few extra hours to cover a colleague who had a family emergency to see to, and then I had a non-writing appointment to attend to. Once that was done it was time for food, and then I honestly thought stuff it. Let’s chill out a little. So I spent a couple of hours just not doing a lot. The most I did was transfer the progress of my projects to a white board. I think I’ll probably still keep it on a paper pad as well. Mainly because I’d need a huge white board to keep it all on and I have a lot of ongoing projects that need editing or re-writing, and I don’t want to swamp myself with those until I’m ready to start working on them.

Having transferred the data over to the white board I can see that I’m going to struggle to meet a couple of targets. I’ve got two major projects that are both penned it to be completed by NaNoWriMo (November). One of which is the vampire book, and I’ve only just started the rewrite on that. The other is Penal Earth where I need to fill in a gap in the story. I don’t think that one will be too hard once I get going with it. I’m not making any predictions on the vampire one at the moment simply because although it’s going well now, doesn’t mean I won’t hit a wall somewhere along the path.

For a little while at least I’m going to be focusing on the vampire book. Unless I see an anthology submission call I’m going to crack on with that while it’s hot.

Right, I’m logging out now. I’ve got an hour to write today, so I’m going to try and make the most of it. I’ll be editing next week, I think. I’ve a few days off so will hopefully be able to make good use of the time.

Have a good one, folks!

An Easy Sunday Morning

Most Sundays I can get up at the time I want, which is normally between eight and nine. This seems to be my natural time to wake up, shame I have to be at work at 8:30 on work days lol. Then I chill out until I go and spend the rest of the day with Tracie. In this bit of time on a Sunday I tend to just slouch around, maybe write a blog post. Run a Hoover through the house but that tends to be about it. This is why I tend to clean the chicken coup out on a Saturday so I don’t have to worry about it on a Sunday.

As I’m sitting here just chilling out I’ve found myself thinking about my coming week and how busy I will be. Lets put work aside for a moment because that’s pretty much the same each week. In the evenings after work though I will be focusing on Project Apollo. I’ve also got some edit notes back from one of my awesome beta readers on the first of my vampire short stories. So one night ill be having a look at that. I’ve also got to do some general maintenance with the chicken run. I’m going to spend an hour an evening over two or three nights till I get it all done.

A productive week coming, I’m looking forward to it 🙂

How do you spend you Sundays?
