Writing Journal: Fridays Week 16 of the 52 week Money Challenge - Good Friday! Scavenging coins to make the balance.

I'm not sure it's the best thing to write and post a journal in a grumpy mood. But then again, this is about saving money when I'd rather be spending.  So the picture is upside down but money is money, right? So I was short by a pound but thought rather than put another IOU in the money pot, I could scavenge around my home for the cash. So I found forty pence in my bag, fifty pence on my dresser and  ten pence on my desk. So that made up a pound. Why don't I have a pound? It's pretty much a cashless society so I tend to use my cash cards all the time. I rarely used money though I might start again because cash cards lead to impulsive buying, especially food snacks. It's harder to keep to a budget when making purshases on cards. A long time ago, I only made big purchases on cards but now even with transport, I use it. Anyway not time to digress. You should already know what the other two notes are....I'm not going into them.

Then  next  so very interesting picture of the money pot with the takings of £16.00. Yeah, right, and the final is....

Finished - so 16 weeks down and 36 weeks to go. Note, I started on week 7 so I may or may not make up weeks 1 to 6. Just saying.  It's going to be £17.00 next week.

Money back in the pot

For those who just follow this painful challenge, on Monday, I put back the £3.50 I owed. I wasn't but felt a bit guilty and I should honour this challenge and also respect those who read it. Let not's take the 'mick' which means make a mockery. So I dug deep into my pocket and released the money to the pot rather than buying some nice treat.

So I'm now quits with the money jar. 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.
