So I am plowing my way through the last few chapters of my first draft this morning and I have completed my entry for this month's COF challenge. All thanks to the fantastic beats of 90's dance music. It reminds me of a simpler time when I was a school and I would spend three hours dancing to it every Friday and Tuesday night. I am sat her at my laptop typing and bouncing. I miss how dance-able and singable music used to be compared to now. So catchy and funky.
How is your writing
Well I think I now hate Mondays.
Everything bad recently seems to happen on a Monday, this morning I woke up to a sever allergic reaction which ended me up with me in hospital by 8 am. I was seen fairly quickly and prescribed a course of both steroids and anti-histamines for the next seven days to clear it up. However I am now going to be missing two days of work this week, I owe the hospital money for my tablets and my eye is swollen shut and will stay that way for at-least the next
Many things can change in a year, four seasons have passed us by. Only 360 days I think, such a small looking number when it is wrote down.
This time a year ago I had just been discharged from hospital and I could not walk very far, I had a completely different job, my situation was precarious as some of you may remember. Now just 360 days later I no-longer work in a kitchen but with small children, my novel has now reached 70,000 words and is still rising. I am more stable in my relationship,
Well I know the english has dropped in my title but I am just so excited to share. At the beginning of the month I found out I could possibly get signed bookplates from Robin Hobb and look here they are. They also came with a signed thank you card. So happy right now.
So now that the gloomy month of January is almost over and the weather (at least in England) has turned crappy and wet, I thought that it was about time I injected some positivity into my reality.
After a frantically busy stretch at work a guest took me aside today and said to me: "You are an amazing young women, you bounce around from table to table with a giant smile and have all thesebrief conversations with everyone you can. While you clear, wipe and reset your tables (there
Well guys it has arrived I have now been a member for a year and I must say I have met some fantastic people, learned so much, felt welcome, had some awsome conversations and wrote stories that I normally wouldn't.
Thank you everyone for making WF a brilliant place to spend time.
So things at work have been steadily getting worse to the point where I have felt the need to Whistle-blow on my General Manager due to his seeming lack of care. Now there have been a few incidents that have happened that should not have:
1. I applied for one position but still have not received said position with no reason as to why.
2.He always arrives 25 minutes late for work, but then feels that he can tell staff members off when they are late.
So this wek has been a good one, firstly I was made a mentor on here, which I am over the moon with. Secondly finances seem to be falling back into place after what seems like an eternity of being all over the spot. My hours at work have become more manageable, which means I have more time to spend with the loves of my life, my boyfriend and my writing.
Yes I am feeling more and more positive as January continues.
I am feeling hopefully again and I hope that everyone else
So each day I have the goal to spend at least an hour sat in front of my computer to with the intention of writing more into my novel. Even if I just sit and re-read what I have already written I count that as my goal achieved. So today I thought that I would build upon that simple goal and set myself to sit at my computer until I had at least written one more line and I ended up writing another 1,000 words, to my surprise. I am looking forward o reading my novel in full once I have completed my
So as 2016 draws to a close we all, each and everyone of us looks backwards over the year, so here is to looking forward; to new possibilities, options and opinions.
Here is to new stories, poems and articles that we express our individual thoughts and feelings.
Here is to another year of adventure, mischief and dangers.
I say to you all here at Writing Forums have fantastic celebrations this eve as tomorrow is a new day, a new year,
I hope that
"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home."
This hit me in my heart with how true it is after such a long day at work and a stressful couple of days. I believe this and thought I would share with all of you on here.
Does anyone else have any quotes about this time of year, we once again find ourselves in?
So I had a pretty bad birthday but now I am looking forward to getting my late birthday present of Final Fantasy XV (which should arrive in the post tomorrow) I never get excited over new games but this time I feel jumpy and excited, just like I can remember feeling when I was about ten on Christmas Eve when you would be too excited to sleep because you knew that you would be getting something awesome the next day. That is how I feel tonight on the Eve of getting this game. I can not wait to play
Well that's it I'm another year older and another year wiser...
Why is it that birthdays make you think about what you have and where you are in life?
After all the celebrating we still question, I feel that as I get older I think more and more about wheremy life has taken me, and overall it's pretty damn good. So here is to another year, another chance, another time to be me.
I know that it has been a while since I last posted but everytime I get into the swing of posting something in life comes to knock my for six, hopefully now with this new job things may start to improve. Well here's hoping anyway.
I know that everyone has hard times so I don't like to dwell as life could always be worse.
Here is to a new start, a new beginning of a new chapter, has anyone else felt alone when in the company of others and if so how did you overcome this???
The joys of writing as many of you know I have been writing my first ever full scale novel over the last few months and it is coming along very nicely. I am enjoying seeing my own world and characters take shape and interact with each other, it is a very satisfying feeling overall. That feeling of accomplishment when you see the target bar turn from red into orange into gold into green and seeing that you are only 20,000 words from your overall target, exhilarating. Well that's how it feels to me.
Recently I attended the twice yearly music festival (maybe some of you have heard of it already) Whitby Goth Weekend. It is exactly as it sounds a music festival for Goth's. For two weekends in the year the small town of Whitby located in the North East of England is taken over and transformed by crowds of people, as it puts on music events, stalls and various events catered for goths who both live there and travel to the town. Hundreds descend upon the picturesque town myself included to partake.
I have again been missing from my blog and writing altogether, for which I apologise but sometimes life does get in the way. I have been through some bad times in the last few months but I will be back on track soon so I have decided to dedicate myself once again to my writing. I do find that it is an amazing distraction and copping mechanism sometimes. I now have some unexpected time upon my hands again for how long I do not know. However I am excited to start another new chapter in my life and
I wrote this story for a university competition but did not have the guts to send it in at the time, I then waited and put it on my Facebook where friends and family liked it, so I thought I would put it up on here and you can all tell me what you think.
Please bear in mind that all of this piece is total fiction except the grave day it was based upon, I feel that I must reiterate that this story is a work of fiction!
So on his fine early morning I found myself unable to sleep so I thought why not sit at the laptop and see what happens...
Well below is a story by my slightly sleep deprived brain enjoy.
The time was midnight, all was silent in the house. Everyone but myself was fast asleep. I stare around my plain bedroom walls willing myself to drop off, When I heard it! From downstairs there came a thud, then a scrap. As though something heavy was being dragged across the living room.
Hiddy Ho Everyone,
So my time away from work is slowly coming to an end so watch on here for the latest excerpts from my writing as I try and get more done.
However tonight I am here to propose a newish Idea; during my first couple of days on the forum me and another member were discussing how music could effect the writing of a person as they listen. So that if a writer listened to nothing but heavy metal music would this in turn produce a darker piece of writing with
So after a few days of not much happening in my world because of being flat bound, yesterday I was taken outside...
This was such an amazing feeling after being cooped up so long but it was defiantly challenging. It is annoying (don't you think) when you loose even a small part of your independence due to illness or injury that it has to be celebrated when you regain it again step by step. So back to yesterday and why it was special, I was taken to Hull in England to meet an author
So today I got to thinking about the little things in life that ee writers use without realising within our writing. Everyday things that tie the reader to our words. A breeze through your hair or a twinkling of wind chimes. Subconsciously we absorb information daily. I love how writers draw them together to form an immersive world...
Just my thoughts of the day.
I know my blog has been silent for a couple weeks but I had good reason.
So here is a catch up: I have been ill for a while now turns out I had an ovarian cyst which unfortunately burst, resulting in an eight day stay in hospital. However I am now gladly back at home to finish my recovery, so sorry for my absence but now I will be back with regular blog posts and story snippets.
Hope everyone is happy and healthy...
So yesterday I did some writing and today I am going to share some writing.
My day today has started off by watching TV, slightly addicted to the Shadow hunters series right now, but then I loved the books in college. Now I am going to try and write through the pain so to speak. I am still couch bound, so here's to having as productive a day as I can. Hope you enjoy.
These are two journal entries that feature in my story.
The Journal of Rosalina Wintergreen.
Here I am beginning my very own blog,
Well being couch bound today has allowed me to add another 1,000 words to my story. Here's a brief summary;
Following the death of her Mother and the financial crash of her Father. Rosetta is forced to move from London to Filey, a small seaside town. Into the inherited, creepy old Wintergreen Manor. Where she meets Lucas the young bad boy who, hates the Wintergreen family. While dreaming of the romantic but tragic past life of Rosalina
