  • Word Count Update 15th April

    Okay, wow. I hadn’t expected to get anywhere close to this number today. (That’s crazy Sunday numbers for me.) But, I did another wee bit of experimentation today. I split my writing sprints evenly between this morning and this afternoon. And like yesterday, I found myself in flow in the afternoon. I know I can’t […]

  • Word Count Update 14th April

    Getting started was a bit of a struggle–shiny distraction squirrels live in my phone–but after half an hour on the elliptical, I was ready. I aimed to hit somewhere between 1,000-and 1,250. But by the end of my morning sprints, I only had 951 words in the bank. So, with the knowledge gained from my […]

    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.

  • Word Count Update 7th April

    I hadn’t expected to have a high word count today. There was an issue outwith writing that needed my attention. Ah, the joys of writing at home 😜 So, I yoinked an extra hour of writing time this afternoon–and a flagon of coffee (what’s the volume of a flagon?). Anyway, Running the Asset‘s manuscript is […]

    Author Journal 7th – 13th April  2022

    Before I write these journal posts, I check back over my planner to get a reminder of what I did the previous week. Turns out that what I thought had happened actually didn’t. I thought I’d remembered the week pretty well–it was my first week back after ten days off; it can’t have been that […]
