Hurtling Towards Halfway + Photo Prompt

So I’ve had a very busy few weeks, and for once, it wasn’t because of some external factor like housework or stress. No, this time, I’ve actually been busy… writing! That might not seem particularly surprising. I mean, it is what I’m supposed to be doing! But very rarely do things actually happen like they’reContinue reading “Hurtling Towards Halfway + Photo Prompt”

One Year In Writing + Photo Prompt & Poem

So this week, it’ll be just over a year since I really, properly started trying to write a book, instead of just floating the idea around! At the time, I gave myself a goal of 6 weeks to get it finished. Having never written anything before, I had no idea how ridiculous of a goalContinue reading “One Year In Writing + Photo Prompt & Poem”

An Attempt At Art + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So this week I’ve been continuing with my third book idea, but I decided to save the real big progress update till next week, when it’ll be exactly a year since I started writing. Instead, this time I did some fun side-quest stuff, and made some sketches and props for the book! In the majorityContinue reading “An Attempt At Art + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

Third Book Lucky + Poem & Photo Prompt!

Its good to be back! And I’ve certainly been busy! A lot of my time over the past month has been taken up with fixing up my garden and redecorating my bedroom, and I know I’ve been rather neglecting my blog posts. (Which I definitely want to talk about later) But between all the house-yContinue reading “Third Book Lucky + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

An Unexpected Challenge + Poem & Photo Prompt!

So last week I went into a library for the first time in years. A leaflet stand caught my eye, and all of a sudden, I found myself unable to resist taking on a new challenge. This January, my husband made the New Year’s resolution to try and read 100 books in 2022. He’s beenContinue reading “An Unexpected Challenge + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

The Enthusiasm of Evenings + Poem & Photo Prompt!

So this week, specifically last night, I got the second chapter of my new book finished! I’m up to 7300 words now, which I’m really happy with. Progress for this story is coming a lot quicker and a lot easier than for the first one I started last year. But this time, it’s got aContinue reading “The Enthusiasm of Evenings + Poem & Photo Prompt!”

The Side Effect of Seasons

After a long dry spell, I’ve been grateful for whatever progress I can make lately. Though that meant starting a new book, at least I was getting something done, which felt great! As I’ve been going along though, I started to wonder why this particular story was appealing to me right now, and I’ve comeContinue reading “The Side Effect of Seasons”

Headway in May! + Poem & Photo Prompt

So this week I’ve got a bit of good news. After all the stress about cleaning was over, I finally started to get some proper writing done, and I’m pleased to say that I’ve finished 2000 words of a new book! A few months ago I made a post about whether it was a goodContinue reading “Headway in May! + Poem & Photo Prompt”

The Hidden Shame of Housework + Photo Prompt & Poem!

So this is what my bathroom looked like last week: And (thankfully) this is what it looks like now! This is definitely a rather extreme example, since we were redecorating, which kind of explains the mess, but still, it didn’t stop me from feeling pretty rubbish about it! It got me thinking about something that’sContinue reading “The Hidden Shame of Housework + Photo Prompt & Poem!”

Monthly Movies (March!) + Poem & Photo Prompt!

So after taking a break from movies in February, (I think it was Baby Geniuses that ruined my appetite) I managed to get back into the zone in March, and I achieved the goal of 1 movie almost each day! I think this month overall had a lot more enjoyable movies than January did, I’dContinue reading “Monthly Movies (March!) + Poem & Photo Prompt!”
