#44 Daily Writing Journal -Still in bed and feeling worse off from cold ymptoms. Writerly Goals for 2019. Taking a Break from Blogging until I'm better.

Still in bed and feeling worse off and frustrated from the nagging cold symptoms.


I feel terrible for the third day running. Normally I can shake off these colds or flu or whatever.This is the worse ever. I totally understand why the elderly and very young get flu jabs. I need to take more care of myself - I mean in terms of my dieting - not weight loss more what I eat. And other things. This has been a horrible experience.

Normally I tank myself up with a fresh ginger concoction or hot lemon and honey but nothing has worked this time around.

Writerly Goals for 2019.

Yes, I'm a month off should have done this in January, or who knows I may have touched on it before. If I have it's changed or being reviewed. I don' really plan these posts so it's however I'm feeling on the day or what I want to talk about. Anyway my goals.

  • Publish two stories either in novel/novella form
  • Write a spin off short story to two books - the first from Another Chance, second is a spin off from Leyton & Angelica (working title).

Non- Writerly Goals for 2019.

With his horrible cold and still being in bed, given it's my third cold in three consecutive weeks, all escalating in seriousness, my main focus is keeping well. Normally I have goals like jobs, career, etc but this year, I need to tighten up on self-care and my surroundings. A lot of my time has been focusing on external things but I need to pull back from that.

Taking a Break from blogging until I'm better

Probably for the best, though it's hard to do when I've started this routine. Oh well, as I said self-care is my focus for this year. Not that anything interesting happens anyway.

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
