Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance. - #10 still no writing....will my excuse wash? Procrastination is still going strong.

It's Holidays! Yes, and the sales are out! So I got myself a lovely new computer for the New Year. It's quite funny because I got a Dell monitor and it's really just cheap plastic! I kid you not. So what has this got to do with writing? Nothing. Nothing at all but I thought to make some conversation.

I've not even done a synopsis and I was doing so well with those too. So what exactly am I doing? Well, I went for a massage which was lovely and I thought lots about writing. I also visited Scribophile trying to stay out of feisty forum debates.  You know the forum debates where someone starts a clickbait discussion that quickly escalates into something huge because everyone on the internet is right. Right even with opposing ideas. Then eventually the forum gets closed. I think now we operate a three strike action against forum offenders - those who break the TOS. I think they lose some sort of privileges - not sure if it stops them.

 Procrastination. 

So with all this delay I've decided to bring out my procrastination book. Yes, I have a book on   procrastination so don't laugh. This book actually got me a 17% pay rise in one job, then a jump to a totally of 55% pay rise within four months. No joke, obviously I changed jobs. Great book called Procrastination: Why You Do It, What to Do About It Now by J Burka and LM Yuen.  Obviously the effects of these books never last so after my new job I promptly forget about it. I did follow some tactics for a while but you know how it is.

Anyway I'm going to read it again and hopefully revise and start the process or un-procrastinating again!

Till tomorrow

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.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
