Monday Must Do’s 7th to 13th Jan

Before I go into one about all that’s coming up this week I have an announcement to make don’t I πŸ˜‰

The Hubster has been reading all your stories about what I got up to at 4am, and he’s chosen his favourite. But first, a special mention to CC who took up the challenge on her own blog, writing a piece of Erotica that made both Rob and I blush and giggle. Especially as I read it to him on the steps of the Victoria & Albert Museum whilst we were queuing to go in last Wednesday morning. I had to lower my voice in places I can tell you!

Do go and have a read, it’s brilliant….but bear in mind, it is Erotica ok, you have been warned! πŸ™‚

Between Us

But * drum roll* the winner is……. Bel Anderson The hubster liked this piece the best πŸ™‚

Hours of anxiety on top of three quarters of a bottle of red had made her tongue as dry as a nun’s gusset. Despite the uncomfortable twisting of her heart, she had to smile. That was one of Dylan’s favourite sayings. Dylan… Foolish tears burned the corners of her eyes. She had to move on, but it was almost too hard bear. Silently, so as not to disturb the gently snoring form of her husband, she swung her feet to the floor and tip-toed out onto the landing. The stairs creaked slightly on her way down, reminding her of all the times they’d crept up and down in the early years, their hearts in their mouths for fear of waking the grizzly, lightly-sleeping children. Things changed; things had to change. In the moon-lit kitchen she fumbled in her bag for her mobile. No messages. Vikki stared at the screen, biting her lip. His was the last number she’d called, wishing him a Happy New Year. If he’d sounded happier to hear from her, perhaps she wouldn’t be feeling so anxious now. What if that unsatisfactory exchange turned out to be the last they ever had? The lump in her throat doubled in size. He was eighteen. He had his own social life. Not coming home didn’t mean he was lying bleeding in an alley. The phone landed back in the bag soundlessly. The glass clinked a little against the tap. Vikki stepped out of the kitchen.

CONGRATULATIONS BEL! I’ll be emailing you honey to get an addy to send your prize. Thank you so much, everyone! We really enjoyed reading your ideas and stories πŸ™‚

So that’s the first “must do” of the week….the 2nd is to thank Pat Wood for nominating me for my 10th star in the Blog Of The Year 2012 Awards πŸ™‚ Thank you so much Pat!

This only blogging 4 days a week malarkey is hard lol

Ok, so my plans for the week…..

As you can see I’m keeping it simple lol πŸ™‚ The WIP is coming along well, thanks to the 100K challenge (see page above for my daily word counts) and some of the resolutions have been going well….note that I said some *sniggers* Should really do an update once a month on that shouldn’t I πŸ˜‰

Off up to Faber tonight for the 1st class since before Christmas!

What are your plans for the week?

  1. Oh! I like her entry. Well done, Bel. And if I made you both blush and giggle, that’s prize enough for me. πŸ™‚

    Congrats on your star as well!


  2. Well the first thing I might do is to steal your idea of a to do list on Mondays. Not that it will look anything like yours. Will be more like, clean windows, shop supermarket. πŸ™‚ However it might encourage me to create a more interesting to do list and will give me a Moday blog topic.

    Good luck with your week sounds interesting and I’m sure will finish up busy. Congrats to Bel!


  3. I have been under ‘do list’ pressure for the last six months. This month, it’s happening when it happens, and doesn’t it feel good. Must go, am editing. Love Maddie xxx PS Congratulations to the Hubster, for getting through all those ‘sentences’ and short stories, bless him.


  4. Well done to Bel – great piece!
    As far as my plans for the week go – I’m feeling very pleased with myself because I’ve made some changes to the structure of my book which has now got me unstuck, therefore editing can now begin! Wish me luck. Have a great week πŸ™‚


  5. Well done Bell – enjoyed it.
    Im still trying to get a synopses finished – its so hard actually saying whats happening. I dont want to give the game away even to an agent!
