#51 Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - The 52-week money challenge

I found this challenge on the Budgetnista web site and it sounded interesting. At first I came up with a whole load of excuses not to do it ranging from not having a account, not sure how to do this, time etc etc. Then I found a simpler challenge but a challenge is a challenge so I went back to this.

The 52-week money challenge

Every week I save the week number's cash. Now I'm starting at week 7 so I'm am going to be £21 behind. Note I'm working in GBP or Pound Sterling. I may or not may it up weeks 1 to 21. 

Budgetnista recommends opening up a savings accounts and automating the transfers, and I do too. However for the purposes of blogging  about it, because it's a challenge, I'll be using a tin and once in while I shall make a trip to the bank to make the deposit.

My Savings

Today I saved £7, which meant I've committed this money to the tin. It was all in coins, now going forward there may be a problem with this as the ATM only gives notes - normally in £10 & £20 denominations. My time for catching the banks will be on Saturday - unless I put in coins and swap for coins. Oh, it's so confusing in a way. I guess it's tidier to go with automated transfer for 52 weeks - well less since I started in week seven but there is the drama in that. 

So these are my coins ready to be put in the tin.

52 week money tin
 This is my tin. I found this tin rummaging through my kitchen. I didn't want to use it but decided it was part of the commitment to this blog. I might consider decorating it at some point.  Or I might get a glass tin. It just depends. That is easier to show.

Money in the tin so I guess it until next week.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
