Hey everyone, how are you?
Yesterday, I had a meeting about the book chapter and it went really well.
The meeting was so good, the documents that I had made in preparation were well received. And we have made plans for the following week, things that need to be done and when we are going to meet next online. We have definite themes now and we are seeing where they overlap and how they can be expanded. It is really getting exciting. As the research we are doing is really starting to take shape. Over the next week I need to make a big mind map showing the themes and how they work. I will then transfer that onto a document and upload it. I am hoping to find some free software that will make the process easier. I had some software when I was at uni called “Inspiration” and it was so useful. But sadly I no longer have it and don’t really want to have to shell out for it.
The afternoon, yesterday, was also a lot of fun. As I had a drum lesson with a friend online. It was good to get the lessons going again and also really fun to have a catch up. I have been drumming nearly every day now for a week or more and I can see some improvement in my drumming. I was meant to have another meeting, but at the time of writing I still don’t know what time it is going to be and if I will be available. But overall it was a really good day. I always feel good when I have a meeting about the book chapter as it is really motivating and the person I am writing it with is so encouraging. It also reinforces that research and lecturing is something that I want to do in the future, as well as being a writer.
Today, I have to pop out briefly, as a friend is taking me to the supermarket to collect the weekly shop. I cannot drive for health reasons and to take a cab or a bus would be either expensive or stress inducing. When I get back I will be writing for the rest of the day. I want to write some more of the short story and get the first chapter of that done. So, that it can get uploaded soon. I am finding that it is taking too long and that I need to be more disciplined in my writing of it. I am hoping that it will be another good and productive day. I am happy with the amount that I have been writing so far this week it feels as though everything is starting to move in the right direction. It feels really good to be back I a good place mentally as well. As when I am not in a good place life can be really hard to cope with.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
