Something For The Weekend


Im sorry I’ve not blogged this week…The Hubster had a staycation and we went away for a few days, and now, I’m really struggling to get back into a routine. Will need to be more focused come Tuesday because its the start of the 100K in 100 Days Challenge.  This is where we write 1000 words a day for 100 days. Im really looking forward to it as i need something to give me a push lol

Finally… The Solution To Procrastination?


Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now will know that i often struggle with not writing. Its not writers block, its not got anything to do with being scared of the blank page. As I’m a huge fan of prompts, i can always find something to write about. No, i think my main problem is procrastination. I need someone to tell me “GO WRITE!” and stand over me with a large metal implement lol. But…just recently…things have improved…and heres why…

Take a deep breath guys…this post is a bit rambly (I’m gathering my thoughts) and very link happy lol…click away though, they’re all very useful 🙂

This months Save The Cat homework is to come up with your hero’s goal, which is to be inserted into the log line.

Turn Your Living Room Into A Coffee Shop


I’m passionate about Nano “Write Ins” 🙂 A group of writers, in a coffee shop (pub, bar, open space) all sitting hunched over their laptops, trying to write as many words as possible during a 15 or 20 minute writing sprint. Trust me, it really does work (I’m going to one tonight!) and we have continued with these sprints, “virtually” on our Facebook group since last November.

But if you really want a bit more atmosphere and can’t get out to one of your local “write in’s”…
