Show me your desk - Tidy today! Note books and Spellbinding sentences.



A neater desk to start to week. Yay! Starting from the left hand side, is my blue notebook - there I keep random writing, tasks lists and to-do lists. Underneath is my A4 refill pad from Rymans and this is where I write out scenes and other stuff before I type them up. 

Next is my desk lamp and penholder. After which is the book on Mastery, and no I haven't read it. I think that has been sitting there for a few months now. It's really my big boss's book. He's really kind and generous man. Moving on is my Spellbinding Sentence book by Barbara Baig I'm working through. The main issue with Baig's book is that she assumes all writer writes the same.  And if you don't write the way she assumes or according to her premise, it's can be tedious. 

The assumption? Well she assumes as writers we all have the same type of imagination, as in visual. But we are all different, some of us are aural based, or sensory based and others are visual. We all process information differently. Apart from the that the book is good. 

Underneath it is my stripped folder. This was a part of a birthday gift from Big Momma years ago. I got two folders and a box, and they have lasted years. I think she got them from Paperchase. Very good quality considering most of my cardboard folders have frayed to pieces. 

So that's it from me. Have a happy week!

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
