Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance. - #14 Progress - but need to space out the time. New Synopsis

Wow! I did some writing but I suspect it's much harder because of the expectations I have for myself. Writing for publication means I need to hit a minimum standard so I'm going to work at it. Really work at it.

Right now I'm still in the club so maybe it will have to be a scene a week. I have 60 scenes. This means it will take me over a YEAR! OH my! OVER A YEAR but I want to write something decent.

I guess it's looking at things realistically. Work is 7-to-5 averaging about 35-40 hours a week. Then travel time so basically in the day I probably only have about an hour free for writing. All writing.

This doesn't take into consideration other stuff. So an hour a day. I need to set this time. Weekends I have probably do about two hours so in total I have about 9-10 hours a week to commit to writing or free time.  What if I have other things I want to do?  Okay keep this blog update at 15 minutes only. Which means no prep, no thing.

But with quality writing (for me), I also need to do practice drills to keep the craft up. This include plotting, description and characterisation plus scene planning.

WHAT TIME? I need to LOCK myself down to a TIME....I'll try evenings 7.30pm to 8.30pm unless I have an evening event then I'll do something in the morning.  I always feel a bit restricted tying myself down to a time but it's only a target and it can be flexed. Once I meet the hour a day.

NO SOCIAL MEDIA! This is going to be hard - but needs must. I need to write something I'll be okay publishing. Maybe I can do a Saturday morning catchup?

Let's roll with the synopsis. I've been a bit slack with that at present.


Everyone wants someone special but ANGELICA WASHINGTON thinks not her.  She's already got 99 problems and does need a man hit the big 100.  But after a one night stand with fine-looking LEYTON THOMAS, does ANGELICA have enough to resist his charm?

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.
