|A Ridiculously Long List - Maria A Smith|
Photography - Spent a lovely afternoon wandering around with my camera, got some lovely shots, you can see them here.
Yes! Did it late Friday evening, took it to the writers group on Saturday morning where it was read anonymously with nine other pieces.
Its a good exercise hearing your work read out by others, although I would have preferred to have seen all the pieces on the page too. Especially flash fiction because its so short. We didn't have time to do this as we had a lot of manuscripts to critique this week. Lots of good stuff!
Second part of 'Getting Started With A Blog' - I worked hard on writing part 2 of my mini workshop, and presented it at the end of our writers group meeting. I had fun doing it, and I'm hoping I've inspired some of the group to set up their own blog. I enjoy helping other writers.
Apart from that, I did a couple of blog posts, brainstormed more topics for September on the blog, as well as thought about where I want to go next. More about that soon.
I also picked up the latest copy of Writers Forum yesterday.
More charity bags have been filled, and I'll be making a trip to deliver these to local shops very soon.
The week ahead.
Writing - I'm going to take it easy this week. Apart from a couple of blog posts, and some flash fiction for my next group meeting, I want to have a good think about where I'm going, and what I want to do next.
Reading - Writers Forum, and I have a new book! In Too Deep by Portia Da Costa I like a bit of erotic romance now and again, and I'm well overdue a good read, and its a real book! As a Kindle owner, its not often I read paper pages anymore. That sounds quite shocking, but its true. I still love real books though.
De-cluttering - I need to continue in earnest with this task.
What plans have you made for the next week?
