Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance. - #14 Progress - but need to space out the time. New Synopsis

Wow! I did some writing but I suspect it's much harder because of the expectations I have for myself. Writing for publication means I need to hit a minimum standard so I'm going to work at it. Really work at it.

Right now I'm still in the club so maybe it will have to be a scene a week. I have 60 scenes. This means it will take me over a YEAR! OH my! OVER A YEAR but I want to write something decent.

I guess it's looking at things realistically. Work is 7-to-5 averaging about 35-40 hours a week. Then travel time so basically in the day I probably only have about an hour free for writing. All writing.

This doesn't take into consideration other stuff. So an hour a day. I need to set this time. Weekends I have probably do about two hours so in total I have about 9-10 hours a week to commit to writing or free time.  What if I have other things I want to do?  Okay keep this blog update at 15 minutes only. Which means no prep, no thing.

But with quality writing (for me), I also need to do practice drills to keep the craft up. This include plotting, description and characterisation plus scene planning.

WHAT TIME? I need to LOCK myself down to a TIME....I'll try evenings 7.30pm to 8.30pm unless I have an evening event then I'll do something in the morning.  I always feel a bit restricted tying myself down to a time but it's only a target and it can be flexed. Once I meet the hour a day.

NO SOCIAL MEDIA! This is going to be hard - but needs must. I need to write something I'll be okay publishing. Maybe I can do a Saturday morning catchup?

Let's roll with the synopsis. I've been a bit slack with that at present.


Everyone wants someone special but ANGELICA WASHINGTON thinks not her.  She's already got 99 problems and does need a man hit the big 100.  But after a one night stand with fine-looking LEYTON THOMAS, does ANGELICA have enough to resist his charm?

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
