Monday - show me your desk! Clutter desk with books, purse and iPad.

My desk - Anna Aden

As you can probably tell by now, my desk acts as extra storage space. So as per normal starting from the lower left handside. That is my burgundy or red wine mulberry purse. I got it in the sale a few years ago, at House of Fraser, I like high end designer bags because they tend to last longer, saying there I have two I need to fix.

One is a Gucci messenger bag and the other is a Hispanitas but I think it will cost far more to fix them than the what I bought them from. The Gucci is about ten years old and Hispanitas probably older - note these are just daily-use (hence the state) casual bags. The messenger is really grubby and I was going to throw it out, but who throws out a Gucci bag? Anyway, let me not digress.

Moving up is my copy of On Editing by Corner-Bryant and Price which I've been actively using. Some greats ideas and not so great ideas, but on the whole I'm finding it value for money. So I'll be using elements of it for the next draft pass. Under the book, is my novel-in-progress notebook and then the folder with the manuscript.

Beyond that is my box of posts-its. The Fresh Box originally had some soap in it which as wash away all my sweat and tears. It was a gift from Sis. Moving to the right, my pen holder and a new book I'm reading. I haven't started it but Celia Imrie is one of my favourite comic actresses. Underneath that the Innocent Wife by Amy Loyd, and I have finished that. It's a story about a stan or super-fan of a death row prisoner who eventually marries him. It's different from the usual psychological thriller, in that it's written in the third person point of view, and it feels almost documentary-like. Very factual. I read on Goodreads (I tend to read reviews after I've read the the book), it was based on some Netflicks series. It's also rather graphic and gory in bits, I just picked it up out of interest. In the UK, that's all the seems to sell.

Next to that is the book on Mastery, yes, I think it's been on my desk for nearly a while now. Moving down towards the lower right hand-side is my pencil sharpener,  iPad and a Society of Author's bookmark which says 'I'm an author so technically this is work'.

Finally, a pencil drawing of still-life objects - a tea-set on a tray.

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
