Daily Writing Journal: show me your desk

My desk

This is my desk. I'm currently just finished reading Christine Feehan's Vengeance Road. Starting from the top left hand side. That is my glasses case with index cards for my next book....working title Leyton And Angelica. You know I talk about that a lot.  Next to it is a Nina Simone Greatest Hits CD. It should be in the cover but my desk is sort of an extra storage.

Beyond that is Sunset Boulevard, the film I plan to talk about on Wednesday (check out my schedule), I was looking at it so should probably put in back in the cover. After that is some stationary - they are like post-it dividers. I got them in stationery shop, they looked unique so I decided to grab one packet.

Those are two notesbooks from Amazon - I also design stationary -  then to that is my empty indexcard book. I've just used the last of them for my novel. The remote control is for my CD player, and yet I still have a stereo.  There  rest of the stuff are just odds and ends, a pen, my hole punch, a few coins, sellotape, a pen holder,  a desk top calendar and the foot Anglepoise desktop lamp. This is my second Anglepoise desktop lamp, the first an original got broken - I should have repaired it but instead I chucked it out. This is my second.

Hopefully next week there will be less clutter on the desk.

Notebooks, they are available in all Amazon stores.

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
