I am doing fairly well today with keeping on track with my writing schedule! Day 2 and i am excited about how my story is coming along! 😀 still a LONNNNNG Way to go, but I am writing! Better to be doing than not doing, right? 😀
So, as I push ever onwards with my story…I feel such a rush and a sense of accomplishment when I see the word count rising!
Having spent the last few hours catching up with my part written novel and writing new chapters, I have increased my word count by more than 2,500 words! Go me! 😀
Finally got the laptop dusted off and switched on! Took a while to log me in after updating….but now writing! Oh how I have missed you!
Due to one thing or another, I haven’t spent a lot of time on my blog as of late. In fact, I haven’t even switched on my computer. I really want to get back into writing. I have so many projects that I want to work on and so many avenues I want to pursue for work.
The whole reason for me giving up my day job was so that I could be at home more with my family, providing them with support, but it was also a good opportunity for me to dive into a career as a freelance writer. I have other ambitions that I will one day pursue and my craving to be a midwife has not disappeared, but for now I want to focus on trying my hand at writing professionally.
But where do I start? It’s so easy to sit on my computer chair, kick my computer into gear and get my fingers ready on the keys…..but then that’s where I pause….I don’t really know where to begin. I have seen many articles about writing as a freelance but the advice is sometimes outdated or not applicable to someone like me, who is just starting out.
A few months ago, I enrolled on the writers bureau writing course – this is for fiction writing and I am keen to get started but there is always something else to do or somewhere else to be. My mind has been distracted a lot in recent months but I am very keen to turn it all around.
I have got course folder out, and I am thinking about that first piece of work. I am drafting short stories and I am keen to get myself out there more.
I am going to start spending more hours writing, and hopefully turn out some work that may appeal to publishers etc.
Lying in bed, with my husband snoring beside me and I can’t sleep…..
I feel hot, so I stick my leg out but feel cold….so I pull it back in.
I feel uncomfortable and try to shift position but nothing works….
I feel anxious and stressed but I can’t really say why. I am going over and over things in my head, conversations I’ve had or not had, etc. I feel like I can’t relax, my stomach is in knots and my heart is racing….
There are so many things swimming around my head and I can’t switch any of it off….
I wish tonight was a one off but I’ve felt like this for so long now. This isn’t the first sleepless night I’ve had…
I must try to close my eyes….
