Let’s Talk Notebooks


I recently came across Walmart’s Guide to Buying a Notebook. What? There’s a guide to buying a notebook? I thought most of us just saw one we fancied and bought it lol

Have a read, it’s quite interesting :)

You’ve seen my filled in notebooks many times, so I thought I would take this opportunity to show you my notebook stash…

Poor Penelope


Prompt 10 of the 30 Day Writing Challenge is:

Find something that you wrote a long time ago and rewrite the beginning, giving it a different tone.

On Monday evenings I always indulge myself by a visit to one of the local bars. At 45 ive done well, keeping my looks, and body shape. Im often told I could pass for 35 easily.

Social Media Burnout?


I’ve actually started to get back to normal. Over the weekend I checked FaceBook at least 6 times. I responded to Tweets, and caught up with some e mails. I read some blog posts, responded to blog comments and even managed a FaceBook status update lol. But this got me thinking…

There Goes Another One…


Week that is. I’m sure I saw it woosh by my ear, or was that one of the cats? *sighs*

It’s been 2 weeks since I had a cigarette. Is it getting easier? No, but at least it’s not getting harder lol. I was determined last Monday that I was going to get back to normal. Ha ha ha, yeah, right, it’s not happened. I’m sleeping more, eating more, reading more (books), writing less, and socialising less (online). If it wasn’t for this little bundle I’d probably wouldn’t get dressed!

Albies been my reason for getting up each morning, as I would quite happily just sit in bed all day and read.

So how do I get back on track? I’m finding it really difficult? Should I just have a break from everything and be done with it? So I don’t feel so guilty? But then what if I never get back into it? I’ve got Nano coming up and I need to prep, but I can’t find the motivation. Gawd, this sounds like an IWSG post lol.

Ok, I’ll stop whining, try to focus lol. Wish me luck :)

What are your writing plans for the week. Please share, it might get me fired up again :)
