Hey everyone, how are you?
I have been trying to write this weekend but so far have been finding it hard.
Writing has been hard because I know that I am not in a good place currently. I tried writing yesterday, for about half an hour and I wrote only half a page. Constantly making mistakes and having to rewrite sentences. My head was going faster than my hand was able to write, leading to the mistakes being made. But at least I have tried to write and I will try again today. I’m hoping that having a good night of sleep and going back to the gaming and writing routine that has helped in the past. In a positive note that I am taking out of this is that at least more of the short story is written. Even if it is a slow process it will get done. So, I will try to write again today and fingers crossed that it will go better and that more will be done. I am writing by hand as it is still a first draft and still when I am not writing I am thinking about what is going to happen next and planning it out in my head.
Today, is Mothering Sunday here in the UK and I will be spending the day with mum, as well as getting on with things that I need to do. We can’t go out anywhere as we are both socially distancing because we both have underlying health conditions. Plus, everywhere is starting to close up because of Government orders. So, we are staying in and I don’t know what we are going to do. We may watch a film or something like that. Earlier in the week when I was able to go out I got her some flowers and I have a card so I’ve got that covered. Life is odd at the moment and I think people are in the process of waiting for this time to become more normal and then hopefully things will start to settle down.
Even though writing did not go well yesterday, I did manage to read which was the other thing that I mentioned on the previous blog that I wanted to do. I, at the time of writing, have finished one of the books that I am reading. Reading has been one of the things that I have been able to do without much problem. I don’t know why that is, but I am thankful that I am able to do it. As it is something that is keeping my mind occupied. Today, I want to finish the fiction book that I have been reading and then I can start a new one. I am aiming to read eighty books this year and I am still on track to do this. I am on good reads and it lets you know how well you are doing on your target reading goal. I have some really easy books to read coming up so I am looking forward to that. Overall, I am hoping that today will be bette than yesterday.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
