June Update - Novel-In-Progress, Reading books, The curious case of Mister Big Man

Another update, yay! I hope everyone is keeping well.

Novel In Progress

It seems I write an average of 10,000 words a month so I'm estimating another 40,000 words. This means I'm looking at an October finish. Let's make that November.

It's going okay and a bit slow because I'm also doing some research so that slows down the pace. Saying this, I'm glad I'm past the midpoint and heading to the first crisis point.

I had no real time for this. 


I'm doing a YA Fantasy reading tour and up to now have read about five. They all tend to have the same baseline story and characters. I have plenty of books-in-the-pipeline and it is only after finishing the current one will I review the others. 

A lot time ago, I did a children writing course so maybe this might be something I could do. 

The curious case of Mister Big Man

Save your self image

This is messy it is what it is. Mister Big Man knows everything but really knows nothing and opines at lot about stuff just to hear his own voice. Once in a while, he gets verbally slapped back, and in those cases, Mister Big Man cowers into a virtual corner and is very appologetic. He is one of those who rub folks or maybe just me, up the wrong way with his behaviour.

At first, Mister Big Man seems he's talking sense but on examination he's talking out of his behind. Gas. Pure gas in a crowded elevator or lift.

However it is the way of the internet so one keeps out of people's way least be called a 'hater'. A long time ago, you could point things out, or 'call them out' but now but now it will be like you are affecting their 'mental health'. And with age and maturity one asks doe it really matter?

Does it really matter Mister Big Man is full of nonsense, and an egotistic numbskull? He's not urinating on my parade, and though at times (to be fair most of the time) can be irksome and annoying, I'm not the one looking the fool. I'm not the emperor viturally walking butt naked, thinking I'm all that.

So it really doesn't concern me. People talk nonsense all the time, and they have enablers who hang on every word they say. It does make me think, perhaps it's a generational and cultural thing. Perhaps I don't understand how some may consider Mister Big Man's gas to be the scent of roses. I must be missing the point. Who knows?

Then again I have to ask why does Mister Big Man evoke that feeling in me?

Then I thought maybe Mister Big Man is just an inner representation of myself. Maybe he is reflecting what I don't like about me, so it evokes a reaction. Then again maybe Mister Big Man is just an annoying man. There is no point in analysing this, he could be just one of those annoying people.

Till next month, take care and keep safe.

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
