#44 Daily Writing Journal -Still in bed and feeling worse off from cold ymptoms. Writerly Goals for 2019. Taking a Break from Blogging until I'm better.

Still in bed and feeling worse off and frustrated from the nagging cold symptoms.


I feel terrible for the third day running. Normally I can shake off these colds or flu or whatever.This is the worse ever. I totally understand why the elderly and very young get flu jabs. I need to take more care of myself - I mean in terms of my dieting - not weight loss more what I eat. And other things. This has been a horrible experience.

Normally I tank myself up with a fresh ginger concoction or hot lemon and honey but nothing has worked this time around.

Writerly Goals for 2019.

Yes, I'm a month off should have done this in January, or who knows I may have touched on it before. If I have it's changed or being reviewed. I don' really plan these posts so it's however I'm feeling on the day or what I want to talk about. Anyway my goals.

  • Publish two stories either in novel/novella form
  • Write a spin off short story to two books - the first from Another Chance, second is a spin off from Leyton & Angelica (working title).

Non- Writerly Goals for 2019.

With his horrible cold and still being in bed, given it's my third cold in three consecutive weeks, all escalating in seriousness, my main focus is keeping well. Normally I have goals like jobs, career, etc but this year, I need to tighten up on self-care and my surroundings. A lot of my time has been focusing on external things but I need to pull back from that.

Taking a Break from blogging until I'm better

Probably for the best, though it's hard to do when I've started this routine. Oh well, as I said self-care is my focus for this year. Not that anything interesting happens anyway.

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
