New Year Update

I know I've been sorely lacking in my blogging of late. The new year is already nearly three weeks old and I am still trying to get myself into a routine that works for me and my commitments. I've been struggling with a few things and I have felt mentally exhausted and somewhat overwhelmed by life. I need to take a bit of 'me time' so I may continue to be a little sporadic over the next week or two.

Writing wise I am still working on a first draft. Progress has been slow over the last month but every sentence counts and I am determined to complete it as soon as practical. I enjoy the editing process so I am sure I will feel energised when I get to that stage! I have also subbed a couple of finished stories so projects still out in the big wide world!

It's my birthday tomorrow, so hopefully a nice meal out with the family will be in order this weekend.

I hope the new year has started well for you all and that 2018 brings you lots of happiness.

  6. Have a wonderful birthday with your family and try not to worry too much when life interferes with writing. In my experience, there always seems to be a good reason that happens and perhaps you will come back to blogging with a renewed energy.

    Please, never worry about a lack of blogging. I know, all to well, how the momentum can slip a bit. Your writing shall progress at a pace that's conducive to you. All will be fine for you will not put pressure on your good self.

  9. Oh yeah, I know what you mean about struggling to find a routine.

    It's taken me more than a year to find what I think could be a routine that works for me, and even now, it's feeling tenuous.

    All the best for 2018!

  12. Hi, Suzanne, and belated Happy Birthday. I haven't been too regular in my blogging, either, although I'm back now and enjoying it again. I think everyone needs a break now and then.
