Daily Writing Journal - #7 my urban lit African American romance. Wrote words and made self-discovery

Day Seven of writing a journal, not bad. At least I'm writing.

Yesterday, I managed to write. I did about 800 words or so but still not the cute meet. Then I thought, I've been writing for a very long time, so what is the problem? It beggars belief that I'm stalling on this. Silly really. I guess it's down the self-criticism and that can have a crippling effect on anything. Thinking that nothing I wrote will meet the standard. Whose standard? I don't know.

It's like I expect things to be perfect, flow perfectly from the pen and that expectation can be crippling. And make me procrastinate but it's really just getting down to it.  Okay good words of wisedom but will it make writing any easier?

Now for synopsis time. I've taken a different approach this time and focused on Leyton rather than Angelica.

Synopsis Time

The  Forechester Thomas boys keep the blogs in news with their antics. From childhood to adulthood, these boys have been the best of friends, and worst of enemies, rivals, competitors. There is a lot of weight with the Forechester Thomases - at times it's a privilege and others a burden.

LEYTON THOMAS

Now that his cousin REID is happily engaged to AKEMI, LEYTON'S girlfriend is pushing for a date for their own nuptials. However a disastrous discovery leads to an unceremonious breakup, and Leyton finds reckless comfort in one night stand with mysterious and beautiful ANGELICA WASHINGTON.

When their paths cross again, LEYTON can't resist the mission to make  ANGELICA his.

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.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! HAPPY 2022! My year of decluttering my creativity!

Happy New Year, Everyone! This was a quiet one, after watching two films last night I called it a night and woke up in the New Year. What films you ask? Guess Who with Bernie Mac, Ashton Kutcher and a lot of cringe worthy jokes. Then I watched Aloha with Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, this was bit better. It had strong moments but I could see why they said it didn't really have any direction. Was it a romance? Was it a military story? It was hard to say what the movie was...a lesson in premise and precision but it gave a nice fluffy feeling and I must say Emma Stone did a brilliant job and so did John Krasinski - he acted with heart.  However it's a nice film and I learn a lot from it, but I think it would have missed the market because there were too many theme or subplots or whatever. Overall a brilliant cast, great acting but the story struggled with doing too much.  Decluttering My Creativity  This year, I'm focusing on decluttering my creativity in the sense of completing
