Time and … Continue reading Reflections of an Unknown Writer: Lessons Learned

priorities

A place for reflection, thoughts, and opinions.  We all have the same amount of hours in a day - we all have the same amount of days in a week, yet it seems like some people have more than the rest of us.

Words & Thoughts – Weeks 34-38

changing road

Weekly thought & writing update.  Words Writing has happened, despite me disappearing. I promise. I've been working on Into the Unknown, and on some flash fiction.

Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

hectic dreams

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Honestly, writing has taken a backseat again the last two weeks. Other things have taken priority. Which is frustrating, but also life. I think my problem is that I haven't really been prioritising my writing/editing. I've been unsure exactly what to prioritise this summer. I have so many projects … Continue reading Words & Thoughts – Week 32 & 33

July 2018 Wrap-up!

July heat

Weekly thought & writing update. Words I've been writing. Not as much as I wanted, but I'm battling stress and an unusually hot British summertime.

Words & Thoughts – Week 23 & 24

summer

Weekly thought and writing update. Words Good news? I've finished all my essays for the summer. Bad news? I've not done any writing outside of essays. Best news?

may

May has been yet another challenging month. I feel like, in comparison to some of the earlier months this year, it's been quite quiet though. The calm before storm that will be June!
