Festival weekend

Photo by Wendy Wei from Pexels Friday Despite being a bit behind on the ghostwriting, I still did my own stuff on Friday morning. I wrote a blog post for here, I posted Chapter 3 of Project Management for Writers: Gate 1, and I grabbed and prepared Chapters 4 to 8 so I had them ready for this week. I top and tail each chapter so it can just be pasted and formatted on a daily basis. I’m posting this one on weekdays only […]

Writing & admin (and a mini rant)

Image by Monoar Rahman Rony from Pixabay I’ve said it before and I’ll no doubt say it again, but Thursdays really are quite tired days. Mind you, I may have still been catching up after my 4am finish the other night. However, when the dog woke me up yesterday morning, I was very happy to see that it was almost 7am. I went through and checked all the usual stuff before arriving at my desk – email, Facebook, Twitter – […]

New regime

Image by Karolina Grabowska from Pixabay After all of my planning work last week, the new regime starts today. Before I started any of it, however, I had some admin to look after. First of all, the poet’s COVID jabs letter came through and he booked both of his appointments. Both of those went into my diary. Then I had a new appointment come through from the hospital. I thought the next time I was there it would be for the […]

A good & solid week

Image by hudsoncrafted from Pixabay It’s been good and solid week, work-wise, as I’ve plodded through the ghostwriting gig. I even did some writing on Sunday, and I hardly ever work at the weekend. I wrote 2 chapters in the afternoon and just under 4,000 words. Monday On Monday, I stacked up a load of blog posts to schedule, using odd pockets of time I found when I was having a bit of a break. I completed one book review, […]

Job searches

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay Thursdays are always tired days for me. I don’t know why this happens, but it always has done. Even when I ‘worked for a living’ you could usually guarantee that Thursday would be the day I turned in late. I didn’t ‘walk to work’ because by the time I realised what time it was, it was almost time to be at my desk. The walking workout is 15 minutes, so I should be able […]

Time management

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay Tuesday afternoon was more ghostwriting. I was late getting started with it, due to date work and scheduling a couple of blog posts in advance. But by the time I got around to it, I’d run out of steam. I was left with a choice: Stare at a blank screen for the rest of the day, or do something else and pick it up again the next day. So I did something else. I […]

Latest mock-up

This is my latest mock-up for publicising both of my chocolate-related books. I quite like the colours in this one. I hope the covers don’t get lost against the background. I forgot to add a title to yesterday’s blog post. I had to go in and add it after it had published. Apologies if your notification came in with 6734 as the title … although, that’s a lot of posts! I did my ghostwriting stint yesterday afternoon, taking me up […]
