Ok, so what little time I had available yesterday was spent procrastinating lol….. I spent about an hour fiddling with my Blogger Blog, uploaded my Nano novella to get verification on the word count, and chose a section of my Nano Novella to use for my current exercise on the course.
Plan for today? Supermarket shopping then crack on and get those bloody questions nailed lol….so that I can actually start the assignment tomorrow *grin*
Yesterday I had to go up to Surbiton with my daughter, well, I didn’t have to go, but I enjoy the hustle and bustle of London, I like to people watch 😉 There are some pretty strange people on trains and as I take my notebook everywhere, I write anything I see down 🙂 Like, the man who was already on the train when we got on……he only looked about 35 facially, but his hair was nearly all grey…… He was dressed like a builder but had a large black bucket and a shovel. Or the young girl, about 20 in the fur jacket, who got on where we got on and spend the whole 1 hour journey preening herself until getting off at London Bridge.
People’s lives fascinate me, I love characterisation, it’s my favourite part of writing….. I can sit for hours (and often do lol) with my notebook, making up characters. There’s a book, and I wish I could remember its title or the author 😦 The title is a number. The author wrote about a tube train he gets everyday where he sees the same people sitting in the carriage, so it’s like little cameos of people/characters…….I must try and find out what it’s called, would love to read it. Apparently, I found out a few days ago Jonathan Kemps new book, entitled 26 is in a similar vein, so I’m looking forward to that 😉
Right, must crack on, but before I go……At Waterloo Station yesterday I spotted this>>>>>>
I love words, and something like that just had me smiling for the rest of the journey 🙂
