#16 Daily Writing Journal - SHORT 2018 REVIEW, GOALS FOR 2019, STILL NOT WRITING

So rather than bang on about how I'm not writing or suffering from writer's block I shall be reviewing my goals.


  • I published two novellas on Amazon
  • I lost 6kg which is about 13 pounds
  • I organised decluttered my clothes and books, and organised my wardrobe and bookshelves
  • I went on a weekend break with  Momma G
  • I had a stressful holiday in Spain - normally I'm recovering from over-work.

 2019 GOALS

  1. Get a new role - this is urgent and top priority 
  2. Publish Leyton and Angelica's story
  3. Do at least three CPD - for career development - I was a bit lax last year because my employer supplied them.
  4. romance? Maybe. We'll see. I had one in 2017 - not so good. But maybe again.
  5. Lose another 5-6kg so about 13-15lb. I'm currently 79kg which is roughly about 174 pounds. So I'm looking at becoming about 160 pounds.
  6. Revise all my creative writing courses exercises & grammar
  7. If I'm good, maybe treat myself with another writing course. 
  8. Explore other creative avenues open to me.
  9. Complete 20 books in my goodreads authors account, and probably 12 in my normal joe-blogs reader's  - no duplicating. 


That will come. But I do have a yummy male lead and a sweet female lead. I'm not too prescriptive about characters as I like readers to imagine their own heroes. I know particular descriptive beats/points have turned me off some characters.

We'll see.

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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
