National November Writing Month - What's in it for you?

Apart from the nice fluffy feeling that you can acheive a 50 thousand word novel in a month, set a goal and acheive it, what do you get? Well apart from the normal ego there is a good reason to do it. Discounted software. A better reason to win or complete the goal you get half price off some well known writing software. Scrivener and Storist.

Merely writing a novel under pressure with a bunch of strangers, sorry fellow writers doesn't do it for me. But the fact that a Loved Family Member (LFM) has promised to give me their Air Mac when they done with it, has given me an good incentive. Yes, I'm using the pural, whatever.

Purely mencanary view and I feel bad though I don't know why is that I can get Storist and Sceiver for half price if LFM does pass it down. If fact LFM usauslly give me cast offs which are much treasured and used for years.

Last year I did take part and finish a novel called Deanna and managed to claim 50% of a PC based Scrivener.

I use Storist in my iPAd and I'm fairly impressed though I really mostly use iA Writer because I get a clear sceen.

There are other valid reasons for doing it. More honourable reasons - keeping to goals, knowing you can do it, that type of stuff. Personal achievements. Then again having something tanigible is always a good thing. So why not....keep it real.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
