Daily Writing Journal:show me your desk!


A cluttered desk today filled with things waiting to be put away. Because I work on my MacBook, I'm fairly mobile around my home. Maybe I need to stick to working at my desk So let's roll.

Those the books on my To-Be-Read list. The CWA anthology because I was interested in mysteries, I've nearly finished all of them. Some stories are good, others not so good. I'm not sure what the others were, but I also got a book on Nordic myths out.

The DVD is How To  Lose A Guy In Ten Days, a rather old feature film with Kate Hudson and Matthew 'The Body' McConaughey. It's good fun, a bit shallow and not that deep. I've had this DVD knocking about for years and years until I decided to watch it.

Next are my stack of index cards for the book I'm editing, working title Leyton & Angelica. If you follow my Sunday posts, you'll know the pain and boredom I'm going through.

The Diary of A Wimpy Kid is only a curiosity read which I didn't finish.  I also have Anne Cassidy's classic Finding JJ, I attended one of her YA writing workshop a few years ago so I was curious to read her work.

There is a CD wallet and a jar of beeswax for hair styling - this was recommended by one of my former hairdresser's client.

That's about it.

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
