Words & Thoughts – Week 29

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. I just don’t understand how this heat is happening in this country. How? Why? How? 😓 I’ve been writing in a notebook, which is a …

Words & Thoughts – Week 16

Weekly thought & writing update. Words Still ugh. I’m currently spending my time going through old notes, and taking new ones, on the technicalities and practicalities of writing. It’s not what I want to be doing (draft two of Rabbit), but it’s the best I can right now. Thoughts I’m …
