Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance. - #10 still no writing....will my excuse wash? Procrastination is still going strong.

It's Holidays! Yes, and the sales are out! So I got myself a lovely new computer for the New Year. It's quite funny because I got a Dell monitor and it's really just cheap plastic! I kid you not. So what has this got to do with writing? Nothing. Nothing at all but I thought to make some conversation.

I've not even done a synopsis and I was doing so well with those too. So what exactly am I doing? Well, I went for a massage which was lovely and I thought lots about writing. I also visited Scribophile trying to stay out of feisty forum debates.  You know the forum debates where someone starts a clickbait discussion that quickly escalates into something huge because everyone on the internet is right. Right even with opposing ideas. Then eventually the forum gets closed. I think now we operate a three strike action against forum offenders - those who break the TOS. I think they lose some sort of privileges - not sure if it stops them.

 Procrastination. 

So with all this delay I've decided to bring out my procrastination book. Yes, I have a book on   procrastination so don't laugh. This book actually got me a 17% pay rise in one job, then a jump to a totally of 55% pay rise within four months. No joke, obviously I changed jobs. Great book called Procrastination: Why You Do It, What to Do About It Now by J Burka and LM Yuen.  Obviously the effects of these books never last so after my new job I promptly forget about it. I did follow some tactics for a while but you know how it is.

Anyway I'm going to read it again and hopefully revise and start the process or un-procrastinating again!

Till tomorrow

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
