I was looking forward to this weekend and some nice weather but again it has let us down and it really is quiet cold. I am going to sound really old but it is really getting to my arthritis and every winter it seems to go to another joint, I really, really need some heat on these old bones. So, instead of doing anything in the garden I have read a book and sorted a bit of paperwork. I have been a bit lazy really but sometimes you just need to turn off. I did go through about four lists and condensed them down into one list, I felt good as I did cross some things off, honestly.

I really do not know what is wrong with the cat today as she is constantly sitting on me and not liking it if I move, perhaps she is feeling the cold too.

Seeing that picture of the old typewriter made me realise how much easier we have it now as correcting mistakes is very easy on a computer and some publishers you can just email your work to them so you do not even have to print it out. Then I started to wonder how many authors print out their work as they go and read, correct or alter it before they then change it on screen. I tend to write and write while it is all fresh in my head and then go back and make corrections, then read it through and change bits or add more. I think I will hunt out some stories I wrote about fifteen years ago and see what I think when I read them now, will I still like like them?

I am off to watch The Voice now on the sofa with chocolate, have a good evening xx

    It is lovely working together. The weekends are great as we have two full days of being together, working on projects, but then I have to go back to work on a Monday 🙁

    Hope you’re well 🙂 xx

    Have picked this up on Monday so I really hope that you managed to get some of the beautiful sun that has been around the UK over the last couple of days.?? We learned to type at school on those typewriters, wish we still had them, they were great, especially when your fingers dropped off the keys and got stuck in between.!

    That sounds lovely, that you both work together to get the finished piece. My granddaughter had a typewriter for Christmas as she wanted to be like “Murder she wrote” lol

    Weather looking up for next few days, I believe the weather man at the moment! Have a nice day tomorrow xx

    Sorry to hear that the weather’s been getting to you Karen, I thought it was supposed to be warming up soon. It seems such a shame that every Bank Holiday Monday the weather is so rubbish, especially as people organise events for each one.

    Michael uses a typewriter to write his books. When his typed pages are ready, I use a software programme on the computer that converts a scanned document into a Word document so that I can edit it to match the typed sheet. I love the sound of his typewriter when he’s in full flow, it’s very “Murder, She Wrote”!

    I hope the rest of the week is warmer for you 🙂 x
