Where did that go?

So my end of March blog post has become a start of April blog post. Which seems to summarise how March has gone, quite frankly.

March is one of those months, every year, almost without fail, where something changes. Whether it is the pressures of the financial year at work, or the changing of the seasons means I spent more time in the garden, March is always one of those months that flies past.

Assassins 1 Progress

Assassins 1 has stalled, somewhat. I’ve gone through an editing slump, which I am only now starting to come out of. I’ve managed to finally push past one of my key blocking stages and start to weave together the second arc which takes us into the main story. It’s exciting, difficult work, which always leaves my wordcount looking rather sad at the end of an evening.

But progress is happening. And any progress, no matter how small, is all that matters.

This month on my Newsletter I talked about Writing Goals, which was rather apt given that this month I have completely shot any goals and am now scrabbling around the remains to look for something to aim for April. Probably just something as simple as “write something”.

Make Your Reality (Monday Inspiration)

You can make your dream into a reality. You can work towards it, day by day, until each tiny little change that you make, each tiny adjustment in your course, points you towards your goal. One day, you’ll stop and realise. You made it. You made your dream a reality. First Posted in April 2020

The Night of the Eighteenth

“Magic,” he said, sipping his drink,” is just another kind of force. Like the weather, or a good cup of tea.” The wizard smiled over the rim of his teacup at Aredria. She held his gaze, smiling back. Her own tea sat untouched on the table in front of her. She wasn’t here for pleasantries. … More The Night of the Eighteenth

A Bit Too Tired

This month can be summarised with one phrase: I am so f**cking tired. I intended to use September as an achievement month. A time to set myself a ridiculous 30k word goal and go smash out those words to get my novel to the next stage. A time to bake some more bread, finish the … More A Bit Too Tired

Cream (From the Archives)

Ineg brushed her fingers across the top of the cream pot. The thick blue substance stuck to her fingers. She held it up in front of the mirror, holding back her hair with her other hand as she carefully dabbed the cream onto the top of her forehead. The makeup was a practised art by … More Cream (From the Archives)
