#48 Daily Writing Journal: Planning my Blog, my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress!

Planning my Blog


Inspired by my writing friend, Raven Black, I'm thinking of planning my blog.  Check out her blog. Not sure because I'm not a planner. I purposely chose a career where I needed to do little planning. Planning makes me feel constricted but it does have it's benefits. But where do I start? Normally when I plan, I either get stuck in the planning stages or by the time I'm completely I lose interest. No harm in trying. She said it took her a week to plan her blog.

I guess my biggest takeaway from reading Raven's blog was finding out my goal. Her was to improve her social media presence by being consistent, and it has worked. I tend to flirt with social media - that includes blogging. The benefit of this is having a more rounded blog....not just me moaning about  writing or colds or editing. 

I guess my biggest goal would be to promote my writing but I don't think blogging does that. However I do have different creative outlets - drawing - badly, cartooning, designing other stuff etc. 

I'll work something out. We'll see.

Progress Update: my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica


Not too good at the moment. I missed out a complete day because it was complex material - well at least to me. I did about 30 minutes yesterday and 30 minutes this morning so maybe I'll pick up momentum. I aim to do at least an hour a day. So I'm behind schedule by at least an hour and half - an hour on Sunday and half on Monday. I can catch up today.

OUTLOOK: From what I've done, I have a lot of work to do...so I hope I make my publication date. 

I'm looking at quite a bit of rewriting. I don't think I actually start writing until week 18 which is the third part of the revision course. Saying that, it's an adventure and it allows me to manage my time a lot better.  I just need to ensure I don't fall behind. So I've got 15 more lessons before than.

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
