So I’ve Started Going to a Writers Group

This week I have written 7’293 words and once again I’m not gonna talk about that. So, I’ve started going to a writers group. Not that I would have started going by myself I am a hermit, but my dad goes so he kind of dragged me along. And I like it, it’s definitely an … Continue reading So I’ve Started Going to a Writers Group

I Think We Have Been Here Before

Oh I have nothing to say, she said, nothing exciting is happening, she said. This week I have written 8’695 words but that’s not what is important! When I wrote my last update I was on the very edges of a storm having no idea what was about to come next. I spoke in that … Continue reading I Think We Have Been Here Before

The Trend Between Good Scenes and Slow Writing

I haven’t written much this week. I’ve been in London for most of it for work (God that sounds way too adulty for the mess of a person I am), so I have only written 3736 words.

I really didn’t want to give anyone my book before it was finished. … Continue reading So I got Rid of my Manuscript

I’m Great at Writing…Everything I’m Not Supposed To!

The Easter weekend has been and gone and I spent most of it writing...just not writing what I need to!! I feel this happens every time I get a spare day, finally able to sit down and get a good chunk of editing done, and yet my mind always wanders on to a drafted scene … Continue reading I’m Great at Writing…Everything I’m Not Supposed To!

The Confusions of Being a Frugal Writer

So I promised myself I'd upload one of these every week but it's great to see myself fail at the first hurdle. Starting as we plan to go on clearly! However last week I was at uni in the middle of bloody nowhere and didn't have the connection to upload. So two weeks to catch … Continue reading The Confusions of Being a Frugal Writer
