What happens while you're busy making other plans...

Monday, 25 January 2016


This week I was planning to really knuckle down to writing my novel. I vowed to wake early and work diligently all day while the children were at school. I already had my blog post drafted about beating procrastination and meeting goals.

But life had other plans for me - my daughter had a sore throat Saturday night, by Sunday morning it was a temperature and by the evening it was a fever.

New year, new writing goals

"That even the unopened future lies, 
like a love-letter, full of sweet surprise."
Elizabeth Daryush 


I always love the new year; a time of aspirations, optimism and writing goals in my fresh scribble-free diary.

Last year my main accomplishments were joining a writing group and finally managing to say I'm writing a novel without making speech marks with my fingers and turning bright red.

After those dizzying heights, I started 2016 hungry for even greater feats of achievement and decided to put my money where my mouth (pen?) was when it came to my writing.
