The To Do List 1st to 7th October

Wow, it’s October, can you believe it!

It was a busy week last week, which culminated in the BookCrossing Uncon on Saturday πŸ™‚

I took 15 books with me and came back with 6, so I consider that a result lol πŸ˜‰

So last weeks list looked like this:
1. Finish Tim Lotts book. Done! really enjoyed it, and I’ve now started one of the other tutors books.

2. Investigate writing Pod Casts. Done! I can recommend Warwick Writing Challenges by Professor David Morley, although, he’s very English lol

3. Sort out books to take to Bookcrossing Uncon. Done! And been!

4. Place Nano order for ML stuff. Done!

5. Clear inbox! Done!

6. Update Blog Film Fest list. Done!

7. Finish at least 1 of the romance books. failed miserably 😦 I think I only read a couple of chapters. I was so intent on getting Tim Lotts book finished lol

8. Try to come up with Sorrento Sunrises black moment. Hmmmmm, semi done lol. I’m really struggling with this. A reason why she has to go back to England, gawd, it’s hard 😦

So a fairly productive week, although I’ve fallen behind by a couple of days with my prompts, which actually means I haven’t written anything since Friday *sharp intake of breath* so I’m beginning to get agitated lol.

This weeks list:

1. Catch up with prompts.

2. Finish one of the romance books.

3. Continue working on the Black Moment.

4. Finish Sabrina Broadbents book.

5. Outline some ideas I have for Blog Posts.

6. Check Nano forums…gear myself up!

7. Do some more work on outlining Sorrento Sunrise (for the Writing Group).

There, that should be quite manageable πŸ™‚ I try not to pile too much on myself or nothing will get done πŸ˜‰ But, my priority for today is to work on a little interview thing for Anushka (at Finding My Creature). When I’ve finished that, I can start on the list πŸ™‚

So what are your writing plans for the week?

    • Ha ha ha πŸ˜‰

      Well, the trick is Lisa, to not have too many things in your list, and for them all to be achievable. I look at the diary every day and pick one, then, I just make sure I do it. Sounds simple? It’s not really, it’s blooming hard to stay motivated lol πŸ˜‰



  1. I think you’re doing really well with your lists – well done!

    I’m getting back to a novel that went wrong. Think I know how to fix it and want to bash out a draft before NaNo starts as I have a new project in mind for that.


  2. Well done last week, Vikki – you’re so productive!

    I want to give you some ideas for your black moment, but I guess it’s difficult without knowing more about the story. If the BM is what I think it is in the overall structure, then I’d say it needs to be something that can be signposted early as an inevitable occurance – the reader will find it totally believable then – and something which, although it will take her away from her ‘love interest’, when resolved it will ultimately give her the strength to sort out all her problems, tying in nicely towards a satisfying conclusion.

    Or am I barking up the wrong tree? πŸ™‚ xxx


    • Thanks Jo πŸ™‚

      You’re not doing too bad yourself! πŸ˜‰

      Ha ha ha, nope, you’re not barking up the wrong tree, and thank you! I read what you said last night, had a think, remembered something that a friend at my writing group suggested (which I dismissed) and now I’m thinking it could definitely work (if I twist it a bit).

      Thanks honey! πŸ™‚



  3. After your to do list last week I popped over to view your film feast, wow, so this lead me to look at what I had been watching and I have to say that I have been very remis and only watched a few 😦 must sort out ASAP lol so will pop back to your blog and see what you’ve added. Good luck with this weeks list πŸ™‚


    • They say, one of the most important things to do when you’re a writer, is to READ! I’d totally agree with that, but I’d also say watch films! I tend to watch films to analyse the plot, the characters, the dialogue…. I often sit there watching one with my notebook in front of me πŸ˜‰

      Especially when you think that a lot of films are adaptations from a book πŸ™‚

      Have fun Sam!
