A friend of mine, pointed me in the direction of this, Keep a 5 Year Journal
I am a bit confused as to where the five years come into it, but there is a question to be answered every day. Now because I don’t want to bore you with a question a day, I am going to attempt to do a week at a time….
What is your number one goal this year?
I would like to get somewhere closer to publication of my novel.
What are you most grateful for?
The National Health Service and the range of drugs I take / can take to keep me on track.
Are you Content?
What is you best memory of last year?
Andrew qualifying as a fireman
What was the last major accomplishment you had?
Being chosen to be mentored by Rachel Burton (she’s amazing)
What possession could you not live without?
Does my bed count? Maybe my laptop
Can people change?
Yes if they want to, and make an effort to.
Doing something right?!
So this weekends goal is to get my application for The WoMentoring Project submitted! I asked my creative writing tutor to help me well check over a piece of work for me and I haven’t heard anything since! So I moved on to my husband who “has to be in the mood” and says he will look at it later! When I make my first million I will share it with him later 😛 so as always I am having to wait on the edge of glory.
I am yet to make it to #parkrun how do people get up on a Saturday morning after working all week!? Then do it again on a Sunday? I’m usually exhausted by Saturday. So I am struggling with that 90 day goal! Though we are yet to make it to renewals! So maybe there is hope yet and I need to make a start on insurance revision which is due to start on January 1st…
I’ve got to make dinner shortly and sleep sounds like a plan, but after junior #parkrun I did spend the rest of the morning plus in bed!!!
If anyone wants me I might possibly be asleep, cooking or on the edge of glory!
So it’s Sunday and I have already done my stunt on the Park from Junior parkrun, I think Parkrun for the kids is such a good thing, everyone is so supportive of the kid in last place that I bet isn’t seen in adult parkrun… So there goes any chance of me starting running again. But going on from this my legs are bad again so maybe running isn’t such a good idea.. Something about not over doing it (haha)
I have also seen something about a mentoring scheme by one of the authors that I like, did I mention this the other day? Mentoring I really have no idea where to start in my application! I am probably going to submit the first bit of my current story but then I’ve got to come up with 500 words of why I want said person to mentor me arg!!!!
Talking of my story I wrote some about the autopsy last night. I am still struggling with the bit of getting the dead bodies ID out there. There is a forum that I am on for writing and they have suggested things, but they don’t sound right or feel right… My MC is ex MI5 and has lived a “normal” life since she left so why would she be keen in investigate the body!? She has a new life, name etc.. Who ever said this writing stuff was easy!
As for everyone elses favorite subject, my legs are bad which I guess the cold doesn’t help, says she who stood in the middle of a field at parkrun in the cold! Maybe I need to get some of those tight things to go under my trousers! Leggins lol! Or possible tights… But I don’t get on with tights! arg. My head went horrible yesterday with the whole not knowing what I was doing, in almost tears in the supermarket, I said to the kids can you behavior in Aldi or do we need to leave it and go home!? and I couldn’t cope with cooking dinner 😦 #MSSUCKS We shall see what this week brings but I am trying do hard not to be written off work again!
More song lyrics possibly
Author problems 101
- If you are an MI5 officer is your DNA and / or finger prints kept on a database somewhere?
- At that point the door to the meeting room open and an attractive female walked through in a brown trouser suit and heals as high as ***
- researching autopsy and end up looking at mortuary jobs instead
- Having to write a list of your character so you don’t get lost somewhere
- wanting / chasing sleep
I don’t know if you saw but there is a chance to be mentored by one of the authors I like! I’ve got to submit 500 words on why and 1000 word piece of writing. So I’ve got my work cut out there and will need to find someone / people to read what I want to submit..
