Practice Duolingo everyday - excepting Tuesday, yes Listen to music/watch a show in one of my target languages twice a week Write 500 words every week day (2500 a week) - Nope.

A Slow Start
So week 1 of ROW80 Round 3, has gone quite slowly but I had the opportunity to go home and visit my family and friends for the first time in months and I 100% will always put that ahead of writing. I may or may not one day be a successful author but I'd rather … Continue reading A Slow Start
A Little Late to the Party
Round 3 of ROW80, the writing challenge that knows you have a life, started yesterday. I'm one day late but I hope the ROW80 gods will understand. After months of working six days a week I finally secured myself a two day weekend and went to see my family and proceeded to forget entirely about … Continue reading A Little Late to the Party
Charging Towards the Finish Line
I have come to the realisation that the end of this round of ROW80 is terrifyingly close. Because I've been so swamped for the last few weeks, I haven't been setting myself weekly goals and so I don't have those to respond to today. Instead, I'm going to take a quick look at where I'm … Continue reading Charging Towards the Finish Line
This week, I kept my ROW80 goals nice and simple. They were: Do initial read through of Daughter of Kings - Almost there, only 9 chapters to go. Reading through the print out, reading the scenes in order, has made it so much clearer where the work needs to be done and which scenes still need a … Continue reading ROW80 Update
It’s still Sunday somewhere, right?
So this post is a little late but that is because this weekend was Eurovision. If you know me, you'll know how obsessed I am with the glittery, spandexy, fire show that is Europe's answer to avoiding conflict. Seriously. Therefore, I was little distracted and didn't have a chance to post my ROW80 update til … Continue reading It’s still Sunday somewhere, right?
Camp NaNoWriMo – A Review
So, I took part in Camp NaNoWriMo this year, and boy is it a different beast to normal NaNoWriMo. If the November session is a huge street party of creativity, the Carnevale of writing, Camp NaNoWriMo truly is a camp. That one you went on when you were like thirteen, stuck in the woods or … Continue reading Camp NaNoWriMo – A Review
ROW80 winds onward
Last round, I fell into a definite rhythm. This round, I feel maybe not so much. Last week, I was working on a computer which was having a passionate affair with death. Sick of it's unfaithfulness, I've turned it in for a newer, younger model. I am now actually so excited about working on a … Continue reading ROW80 winds onward
What are you doing about it?
I met up with a friend last week and we were talking about goals and wishing and hoping. I'm the first to admit that I fall easily into the trap of despair. I think I don't know what I want or if I do, I dream about it a lot without acting on that want. … Continue reading What are you doing about it?
How Time Flies: Round 2 Week 2
I'd like the say that despite what the colours below might indicate, I am quite pleased with what I achieved this week. Especially as my computer is now at the point of crashing at least once per session. So this was basically me: Anyway, moving straight along.... These were my goals for the week: Reading Sasha (probably) … Continue reading How Time Flies: Round 2 Week 2
