Author Journal 2nd – 8th September 2021

Hiya folks! Here’s this week’s journal entry, and it’s going to be a swift one. It’s my birthday today (Friday); there’s cake and an obscene amount of washi tape and journal stickers waiting for me to get stuck into (awesome gifts from my beloved Jez).

Review 26th August – 1st September 2021

My Writing Goals for Last Week

How Did I Do?

Man, I got so close. I wrote 4383 words and deleted a fair few on the way, but my end tally was 39,293 words.

This Week’s Goal

  • Taking it easy.
  • Set up September’s goals and Kanban board.
  • Refresh my business and marketing goals (***See the Ko-Fi button on the side? I only just added it to the site last night–it’s been on my Kanban board for almost a year. Hence the refresh.)
***Buy Me a Coffee at

Speaking of goals and the Kanban board. I exceeded my goal for August! The goal was to hit 37,000 words. So, more cake is needed to celebrate that! 🍰 Take a slice; there’s more than enough to go around. 😊

That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by, and take care.

Royal Navy veteran from Scotland. My journey into writing started with a screenwriting certificate program at UCLA Ext. Since then, I've worked as a freelance content writer, erotica author, proofreader, professional beta reader, and content editor. I'm now working hard on my dream writing career: romantic suspense author. When I'm not writing, I can be found drinking too much coffee, obsessing over yarn, and planning world domination with my husband,, and our squirrel army.​
