Author Journal 23rd – 29th June 2022

Hiya πŸ‘‹

I had hoped to share a decent leap in my progress this week, but alas, that was not to be.

Hiya πŸ‘‹

It was only a matter of time before I hit a roadblock with editing. Mainly because editing is a mammoth task, and like with any job this big, it’s inevitable to stumble along the way. And stumble I did.

Hiya πŸ‘‹

Last week I shared that I set up a timetable to help me focus on my edits. I also mentioned that I’d probably not stick to it. My prediction was correct, but not to the extent I’d internally feared. Yay!

The timetable I set up is a fantasy. The fact I actually stuck to it 70-ish% of the time is shocking to me. The times I did stick to it, I saw a considerable increase in my focus on the job–and a boost in my overall productivity. πŸ€“

Author Journal 2nd – 8th June 2022


Last week taught me a couple of things. First, editing for myself requires so much more discipline than when I did it for clients 😬. And second, I need to take a serious look at my daily work schedule.

Author Journal 26th May – 1st June 2022

Where did the time go? The last two weeks have flown by, and my holiday is over. We had a wonderfully relaxing time as we celebrated our anniversaries. Chilling out at home, watching movies and playing original Halo on co-op! (Thank you for all your warm wishes for us both πŸ’–)

With that much-needed break under my belt, it’s time to get back to work on the editing 😬

Author Journal 12th – 25th May 2022

This week’s entry covers the next two weeks, which can only mean that I’m taking a break and plan to do sod all during that time (other than catch up on your comments πŸ’– and some blog and book reading πŸŽ‰ ).

Last week was my first one away from writing the actual story. I’d thought it would be relatively simple and not too taxing on the brain… Until I sat down at my desk at 0600 on Thursday…

Author Journal 5th – 11th May 2022




What a week last week turned out to be; I’m still reeling from it. I’ve got this weird detached feeling about it. It’s like this crazy combo of it was a year ago and that it was someone else’s experience. Basically, forgive the lack of detail about what occurred last week.

Author Journal 28th April – 4th May 2022

Have you ever set yourself a huge goal and then instantly regretted it? Yep, same here. With the goal I’d set myself last week, I was starting to have some serious doubts halfway through the first morning of the week.

Author Journal 21st – 27th April 2022

Last week took me by surprise. I set out with a sensible plan of attack for my writing goal. Nice and easy; just spread the word count across the four days, and there’d be no need for another crazy Sunday. No need to hit 2K words in a day.

But, like all plans, they rarely survive contact with the enemy. I’m not sure who the enemy was… Okay, it might have been me 😬 Anyway, things went a wee bittie psycho.

Author Journal 14th – 20th April 2022

Last week was odd. It started with a mystery leak in the kitchen that ate a fair bit of writing time. A leak that, after hunting its source down, turned out to be a spill πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ But after that… nothing. No dramas. No llamas. No distractions.
