Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’m delighted to say that I’ve finished the fourth Writer’s Block Workbook with an extra c.10,000 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night) and I’ve started the fifth, a new batch of sentence starts, akin to the first volume.

I’ve been continuing with the fourth Writer’s Block Workbooks this week so have a couple of thousands words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). I’m hoping it’ll be finished by this time next week and I’ll have moved on to the fifth before returning to fiction (another Henry Short Story then to one of my part-written suspense novels).

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been doing more to the fourth Writer’s Block Workbook so have an extra c.4,000 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night) which is a technicality as they are all prompts. This will be the last format and therefore the last in the first box set of these workbooks. It won’t be the last in the series, far from it, but I’ll be repeating (with new prompts, obviously) so…

  • Book 1 is 1,000+ sentence starts and book 5 will be new sentence starts;
  • Book 2 is 1,000+ sets of keywords to include in your story (or poem, non-fiction piece) and book 6 will be new keywords;
  • Book 3 is 1,000+ random prompts and book 7 will be more random prompts;
  • Book 4 is 1,000+ component sets (jobs, names, traits, locations, objects, dilemmas) and book 8 will be more component sets.

That said, I will be taking a break before I crack on with book 5 as I plan to write more niche books, starting with a ‘how to’ on characters. Exciting times!

I’ve been doing more to the fourth Writer’s Block Workbooks so a couple of thousand words this past week (last Wednesday to last night). It’ll probably take two or three more weeks then I’ll turn back to the second Henry Short Story.

Deborah Cross with ‘Hope in Springtime’

The moon hangs low in the sky. It is becoming fuller, but it’s heavy, struggling to rise. I have stood every evening on this balcony since it all began, to relax, to breathe. There is so little time. It helps me believe there is a higher hand in all this. These last few weeks are the darkest I can remember.
Across the way in the next building in the dim moonlight, I see the dancer, supple and lithe. She creates beauty in her dance, and I understand. This is her time…

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been cracking on with the fourth Writer’s Block Workbook with an extra 8,688 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night), although they are prompts so not ‘writing writing’ as such but I’ve still been productive.

Yes, it’s that time of the week again. How have you been getting on?

I’ve been busy with work work and advertising my existing books (via Amazon Ads) so only started writing yesterday afternoon. I’ve therefore only amassed 1,007 words this past week (last Wednesday to last night) but that’s okay, and it’s the next (second) Henry Short Story so an enjoyable 1,007 words. I also plan to continue with the fourth Writer’s Block Workbook in the next few days so hope to have news next Wednesday.
