Hey everyone, how are you?
It’s a new week and one that is not busy in terms of appointments, but busy in terms of things to do.
Today I don’t have much in the diary and it is a bank holiday in the UK. Which I had initially forgotten but remembered when writing this. I don’t have any plans for the day, as there is not much to do because of the pandemic. I will probably end up doing some writing, reading and drumming. I have been drumming each day for the past week and I am seeing some improvement in my playing. I have been able to speed up the best I am learning and play it consistently for about a minute, which is what I was initially aiming for. The aim now is to keep that going and make it two minutes. I practice for around half an hour at a time. But as my back and neck get better I went to improve on that. I’m also waiting for a mat to put on top of the snare drum to mute the sound so that I can practice for longer and not disturb others.
Writing wise I will be looking at both the short story and the novel. I have a meeting in the middle of the week, which I also need to prepare for. I am looking forward to getting more writing done this week and will be aiming for the end of the week to have the second chapter of the short story online, next weekend at the latest. It is a deadline that I have set myself and aim to stick to. As that is something that I need to get better at and limit the procrastination. With the novel, I need to find the original and see where about I am in the rewrite, as I want to keep the timeline the same. It’s also been so long since I have looked at the original that I need to remind myself of some of the more minor characters.
There is also a book that I am close to finishing and more of another one that I want to read. I read a lot over the weekend, so, this should be doable. I don’t want to spend the entire day sat at my desk, so, I want to make sure that I get some chill time in, which will probably be in the evening. Which is when I will be reading. It should be a good day and a nice way to start the week.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
