#28 Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress!


I feel smiley like this froggie.....

My urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress! 

I've finished the club scene. Yay! Not the best but it's encouraging and delicious and sexy! Now I just have a just 2 more scenes to write before they break into act two. YAY! I'm feeling good! I've just being stuck on this scene for over a month! Most of it has been procrastination and fear of not knowing what was good enough but I've cracked the second draft so I'm HAPPY. Now if you have read my synopsis you'll know she mets a thug in the club. It's a decent length at 2,300 words.

Backstory Short story

I'm also working on a backstory short story. It's do with Leyton but maybe Angelica needs one too. Can't say much because it's a spoiler. Or maybe as bonus material at the end of the book. Not sure. Or I could give it to readers who sign up to my newsletter, before I slap on Amazon. Just a thought.

Tooth Drama

I have a temporary crown and its throbbing like crazy. No I haven' forgotten about my tooth drama.

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
