Hey everyone, how are you?
I’ve been writing whilst rocking out to music and I have found that it is one of the best ways for me to write.
I have been writing and rocking out, which has been more productive than I initially thought. It took me back to my student days, where I would do this on a daily basis. I had forgotten how good it was. I was head banging, as I listen mostly to metal music, whilst reading an academic article and highlighting the relevant parts that could help my argument in the section of the book chapter I am writing. It was a lot of fun and I managed to get a significant amount done. The article was also really interesting and I know that I will be referencing it when it comes to it. I also managed to get a bit of the draft written as well. Although, I did have to stop for an hour or so as I did get a headache. They are a regular occurrence and the pain relief that I have to take knocks me out for an hour or two.
I will be writing some more today, as I have a meeting tomorrow. But I do need to go out and run some errands for my mum, as she is still having to shield because of the coronavirus. I don’t mind running the errands for her as she does a lot for me. And I also have to get a couple of things myself. It will be good to go out as it has been a week since I last left the house. But once I am back I will be tied to the desk writing. If I get the chance then after I have written what I need to for the book chapter, I will look at writing more of the short story. I think it will be the end of the week or the weekend when the first chapter is up. I am doing my best to get everything done by Friday, so that, I can sit and play a new video game that I have pre ordered that is coming out that day.
In the evening, when I am done with writing, I am going to be reading and drumming to relax. I am over half way through the second hunger games book, “Catching Fire.” It is really good and still really hard to put down. I have to force myself otherwise I would not get anything else done. It should be a good but busy day and I am looking forward to writing some more.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
