I'm so excited! So far so good and I completed before schedule so now I just need to wait for the second lesson - I get them weekly. From her site this was what lesson one was suppose to do

When you work your way through this first lesson, the most important thing you are learning is how to recognize and save every bit of wonderful you put into your book.
I really liked the story I read. There is plenty to be worked on. Lots and lots but overall I enjoyed reading it so I hope readers will find it good, provided it stays. I'm so excited about this!

Because of the way the lessons were structured, I enjoyed doing the lesson as well. However I don't drill into lessons that deeply, like she gave a full length demo but nah, I wasn't going to read all that before starting on mine. I gave it a brief glance to get the gist of the situation but her course materials were self-explanatory. Also I learnt by doing a mistake, how to do it the right way. So it's all good. Remind me I said this if I return to the lesson again. 

Other Stuff...

I guess until I get the next lesson, I shall not be revisiting my urban romance novel. I'll just catch up with other things in life, like chores and some other urgent and top priority things. Do I still do updates? Maybe I'll just a small flash piece until I start the writing lessons again. Urban fiction flash? Or just general stuff. Don't know. Maybe take a break.

Is this my daily journal about writing?  Don't know I'll figure out a schedule or something.

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
