Daily Writing Journal - my urban lit African American romance. - #15 Progress with grammar, trying out sample movement. New Synopsis

So I'm going back to craft practice and only spending 15 minutes a day on the blog. I might do less. Right now I've clocked in about 1.45 minutes. So let's roll.

Description 

Yes, this is one of my craft weaknesses and has given me grief while editing. That and a host of others However I've done a sample.

Practice one.


Danny slapped the creaky front door shut and crossed the busy road. It was freezing donkey balls. Ancient Mr Pink was outside with his old banger car, polishing the yellow bodywork, rubbing in the shine so it shone like fool's gold. Two doors down, troublemaking Mrs Green was fighting with her no-good baby father, cursing him out, calling him a useless mama's boy, no change there.

At the bottom of the road, Danny turned a sharp left and hurried down a row of expensive townhouses. All neatly kept with immaculate front porches and luxury cars parked outs - Jaguars, Bentleys, Maybach and the odd Porsche. All except one townhouse. It was tumbled down and derelict with a rusty bike changed to the railing. Loud music boomed from the inside. Danny stopped and stared at the shabby house, thinking up the courage to go in.

Takeaway - I need to look at locations.

Synopsis

It's been five years since ANGELICA WASHINGTON was in a relationship, and she has on plans for one. One failed relationship was traumatic enough. But now the handsome LEYTON THOMAS wants to get to know her. Will she let him in?

---------

Okay, not as good as before but thats because I'm 13 minutes and  I need to round up. Writing? Yes, going well but need a little more to go on. But I'm WRITING...YAY! Even if it's just practice.
Okay I'm on 14 minutes now and I have to publish.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

HAPPY NEW YEAR - LET THE GOALS ROLL

Hello all. Happy New Year! So last year was awesome for me because I managed to achieve one goal. The biggest goal which was to get a new job. And that came with financial reward as well. Yay! It was hard, challenging, horrible. I hate change but I had to get out of the rut I was in. Dudes, I was desperate to move. So I dug deep, did my interview practice, attended a number of interviews and hit one. Yay. Now longer gaming. I didn't need the escapism with my new positive work environment. I also abandoned the iPhone family and went Android. To cut a long story short, I got bought an iPhone 8 but it was faulty - however Apple weren't transparent about their return policy - ALWAYS ASK ABOUT RETURN POLICY. Nor did they believe the phone was faulty. It was. Anyway I was so disgusted the arrogance of the 'apple people', I decided instead of getting a replacement to spend my money elsewhere. I'm still part of the Apple family. But the Apple Store sales assist

Up Date on Happenings: Newly Single & 17% pay raise.

Hey Everyone, So update since my last entry. Well I had a brief fling with Mr Sexy Guy and decided he wasn't the one for me. He was cool but I learned the difference between lust, chemistry and personality. It just didn't tango for me. I'm still grossly overweight, well, fat. I don't think there is anything wrong with being called fat. I am fat. I need to lose weight but that means getting organised and stop eating delicious food. Then again my knees are hurting me and joints feel the ache. I also haven't been to the gym in three months despite paying for it. But when I do, I normally go for the sauna, hot tub and   steam room session. I've thought of cancelling the exorbitant membership but in the climate apart from bills it's the one thing that is just for me...that when I use it. Work is fine, managed to get a 17% pay raise. A big thanks to my boss who also pushed for it. It's good to work for people who support you in that matter. I think tha
