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.

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
