Find something that you wrote a long time ago and rewrite the beginning, giving it a different tone.
Original version (written May 2011)
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.
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…
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
Huge thanks as ever to the wonderful Alex J Cavanaugh for hosting the group I will try to get round as many of you as I can today.
Another month has absolutely flown by, but I don’t mind, I love autumn, when I can wrap up warm and drink endless amounts of hot chocolate. It also signifies the run up to Nanowrimo, and I’m excited this year because (1) I’ll be using Scrivener to write the whole thing and (2) I think I’m really going to enjoy writing this one
Well, I am soooo excited! Now that I’ve just completed week 2 of the Scriveners course I feel confident enough to actually use it. So I’ve set up a “Blog” project and for the last few days I’ve been compiling posts using it
