Good morning. Oh boy, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?
Another week of house stuff. Transferring things from my mum’s house to the (bigger) storage unit, the old one emptied quite quickly (so I wasn’t paying for two) and dealing with a new estate agent, a cock-up (pardon my Franglais) between my ex-mortgage bank and the Land Registry, and contractors fixing things at my mum’s house and my uncle’s (one turned up, one didn’t).
So it got to Tuesday again and it dawned on me that it was Tuesday again! So, at 16:38 I got writing. I’d had nearly 500 word written by 17:53 – the opening to a new novel (that I’d planned last week), one I feel has potential to be commercial so will either go off to agents or a select choice of publishers. I’m currently self-published (one of my 16 titles was trad pubbed to mixed reviews: a one-star review that said ‘I don’t usually leave reviews for books but this was so bad that I felt I had to’ – thanks! – but also a blogger’s (and we know how many they read) favourite of 2018 so I love the disparity) but would love to be wider read… wouldn’t we all.
With the distraction of dropping more things at my storage unit, meeting beloved (always the highlight of my day) and collecting something from Facebook Marketplace (I’m a slave to it!) – a mile apart, thankfully, I finished my writing part-day with 1,698 words (almost two chapters). Not bad for a handful of hours plus I’m very pleased with them. Hopefully it won’t be next Tuesday before I add more.
