Words & Thoughts Week 22

Words & Thoughts Week 19 & 20

Words & Thoughts – Week 18

Weekly thought & writing update. Words I’ve not really had the time to write this week. I’ve got a lot of words to write for essays, and I’m still not feeling tremendously motivated to write fiction. Last minute update: I’ve worked out the problem with my writing – I’m hoping …

Words & Thoughts – Week 13

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Not much to say this week. I haven’t got any writing done this week. I have been reading through Rabbit, on and off, and making notes for draft two. My words this week have been academic, but I will be making time over the …
