New diary this week!

I started Monday off with some study time. I’ve downloaded 6 free courses from Reedsy that each consists of 10 x 5-minute ‘lessons’. So six of them equal 30 minutes of reading time. By the time I’d done this, it was 10:30am and I was well into my ‘my work’ time. Next up, I veered off into ‘client work’ territory and had a quick look at the outline for ghostwriting gig #6.

It’s going well

This is my writing bag. Once upon a time, when I *worked for a living*, I worked for the National Grid in Coventry.
