Well I have to say that I am very proud of myself for all that I have accomplished in the last year. When I started this blog I did not know what I was doing or in what direction I wanted to go, I now know the direction but it’s not easy getting there! I have found that I do not have the time to blog as much as what I would like to as I am always writing, the novel has been put on hold half way completed and I have finished some short stories. I intend to submit them to competitions but every time I see one it’s either the wrong topic or not the correct amount of words, so then I have to start another one and sometimes do not get it finished In time. I can now see the value in re-reading your stories after a few months as I always seem to come up with something better to add either in the story or the way it was written.
The web site has not taken off as well as I would of liked as not enough interaction from people but I will keep it going and add content and maybe a suggestion page to see what people think?
Creative writing started this week and it was good to get back in the swing of things, these first two weeks are going to be poetry then leading into prose to story. We have a couple of new ladies so will be good to get other points of view on things, it was a shame we had a fire drill as it wasted so much of the time we get. I guess we all have to be safe though.
I went and stayed at my friends house the other evening, we have progressed onto Cosmopolitan cocktails, very nice I must say. Then having an Indian meal to soak it all up, a fun evening was had and cannot wait to do it again. I think she just wants details about fireman Carl though, very nosey lol. My texting is getting very fast as we chat every day but not sure when we are getting together again as he now has another job for when he is not on shift! I guess it will be even nicer after waiting a while. I did hint at Valentines Day so we will wait and see.
Tonight is Burns Night, I have never fancied haggis but I guess you do not know until you try it and there appears to be many different recipes as to what you put in it. I hope you all have a wonderful meal and evening if you are celebrating.
