My work output just lately has been absolutely atrocious.

I just this second updated my word-count spreadsheet for July, and I had to spend some time first putting in a series of zeroes for June!

I’ve not written a word since 22 June. This is disgraceful! Especially when I have so many ongoing and new projects bustling for attention.

I wouldn’t mind, but it isn’t even as if I don’t have anything to pay for. I have a new car to pay for, for a start! And yes, it really is yellow! I’m very, very happy with it.

They made us feel very special at the dealership when we went to collect the cars. Even they said they don’t often hand over two cars. We were both given a key ring and a tin of car sweets each.

I wondered where my car was, but it was beneath a sheet that was ceremoniously whipped away to reveal my lovely little new motor. The poet’s car was outside.

So now we have these two new cars to pay for, we need to pull our horns in and I need to get earning. I do have editing work in, and there are proofreading jobs on the way too. But my resolution for July is to write something every day, even if it is just a blog post – it’s all exercise.

What have you been up to while I’ve been AWOL?

(There’s 243 words to start me off …)

  1. Delighted to read you finally have a new car. I know its been needed for a long time! What have I been up to? I have to admit I’ve been busy with holidays, overseas visitors and jollies away. BUT I havn’t stopped doing a little work – and now I have the exciting news of publication day on August 9th!
    I’m sure you’ll be back in the swing soon.

    1. Yes, at least now I feel able to drop things if/when necessary and go. We needed a reliable second car, and I do love it.

      Good luck with the launch!
