Hey everyone, how are you?
I just wanted to give a writing update, as I know it has been a while since I posted on here.
I have been planning and writing a lot over the last couple of weeks and I have many more things to come.
Fiction wise, things have been a bit slow, but I am going back to aiming to write two chapters a week of the novel. When I started it initially went well and I found that having a target to hit gave me extra motivation. The last couple of weeks though I have been swamped with meetings and I did not have the time to do much fiction writing, so it is the main aim for this week. I also know that I need to get the short story finished as well. I don’t know if I will be able to finish it all in the upcoming week along with two chapters of the novel, but I can try to finish the chapter I am on. It will be good to get it done though, as I am starting a creative writing group for six weeks the week after next. So ideally, I would like to get it done by then.
There is much happening with the non-fiction writing side of things. The book I co authored a chapter on is now out for general sale and the feedback has been good. So, I am really pleased about that. My friend and I have also put in a proposal for an article that is being organised. We haven’t heard yet if we have got it but if not then we are going to write it anyway. Because if this publication doesn’t want it I am sure that there will be another one that will. I also have something else lined up in the pipeline, but cannot really mention it right now. But all I can say is watch this space. I am also in the early stages of rewriting a PhD proposal and need to get in contact with an old lecturer from my masters, so I have that to do as well.
Thankfully the meetings will die down a bit this upcoming week, although I still have one most days. I won’t have more than one everyday, so for me that is a win.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
