#49 Daily Writing Journal: 2019 Blog Schedule, my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress!

 2019 Blog Schedule!

I did it. I made a rough schedule. It's not pretty like in a planner with nice washi tape but I did it! So this is what I'm proposing.  Note there was a bit of time lag with most posts, because it had my timezone as Pacific Standard Time. I do GMT - so that has been corrected.  


Monday - show me your desk!
This is where I show you my desk and describe or give information on one thing. It might even inspire me to keep a clean desk policy. 

Wednesday Film, Movie 0r Boxset Night
Any movie - DVD, cinema, on demand, new or old stuff. This is where I write about a movie  or box I  recently watched. 

Saturday - My London Hood
This just forces me go out and take a picture of the magical city that is London. So it will be random. Very random. I'm not promising.

Sunday - Novel editing progress update
This is when I get the new lessons delivered so I'd be doing this. I'm still going to be doing this when I can but this will be the main topic. 


Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

These days will have  either randomly challenges prompts I picked up on the pinterest or on the internet. They aren't in date but they will do as a starting point. To be fair most of them are similar.

30 days of me challenge - not sure what month...I was thinking March but that can be busy.

One month creative challenge. 

What missing? BOOKS!

No books..yes, I haven't got a book challenge set up. I guess I could clear out my Kindle and bookshelf of un-reads books. I do read but I post my reviews on Goodreads. But I guess I could always post a review once I'm done with a book. No harm.

Other considerations & takeaways From blog planning 

Planning a blog is hard work so I'm impressed with all those who do it and STICK to it. My main takeaways from the process

Blog design
I'm actutely aware that my blog may need a redesign to help with displaying blog posts. I do like the old fashion blog design but it seem clunky. I do have in mind a format but I can't get distracted thinking about this now. I did try the old designs but the picture widths are too large. Don't know. I need to rethink this but not just now.

Clean up categories 
This will take awhile. 

Blog Timing & time zone
It was down as Pacific Standard Time but I've corrected that.

I'll post a clean version of the schedule when I get round to it.

When do I start? Well Tomorrow is as good as any day

my urban lit African American romance - Leyton and Angelica Progress!

I've made some progress though I don't think I've caught up on lost time. I need a little bit more conflict and it's kinda of slow. The pace is very slow and pedestrian for now.

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.

My London Hood - The Tate Modern

Modern Gallery make you think of the world as it is today. I just wandered around the exhibitions in the Tate modern and  seemed focused on oppression of humanity - focusing on the poverty, wars, sexuality, violence, conflict, the underdog and gritty. This was a picture that captured my imagination because it looked so modern. This is a painting by German artist Christian Schad  called Agosta, the Pigeon-Chested Man, and Rasha, the Black Dove 1929 is a large portrait-orientated oil painting of two funfair performers.  So in typically America-speak when I saw my people, I had to stop and take a picture, therefore homegirl, Rasha, the black dove is headlining my blog. In those days, I guess the only work she could get was as side-freak show but she is very beautiful, modernly so. It also made me think of what happened to all the black people or people of colour during Nazi Germ

Review of January 2018 - lost weight, socialised with others, completed my beta-read, doing my courses.

Hello everyone, Just checking in about my goals and life in general. It's all good. What went well. I took in packed lunches for at least four days a week. This was just hummus, sprouts, grated carrot sandwich. So very vegan.  I also cooked dinner a few times a night rather than eating junk food or takeaway. So a lot healthier. I finally have a social life of sorts. In my last job - it was work, home and see family on weekends. I was so drained and tired so this new job has made such a difference, that I can go out and meet people.  So I go out with some drinking mates once a week. It's a nice evening out of the house and away from social media or the internet. It's mostly small talk but its nice. I'm doing my photoshop course. That is coming along nicely, that picture is from one of my practice sessions. I'm doing a couple of writing courses which are intense. What hasn't gone well. I need to focus on having more routines, and breaking tasks
