Last week was far more relaxed than any I've had in a while, perhaps, because I didn't put myself under as much pressure. What did I achieve?
Writing - I got the last monologue finished, and sent out, I wrote several posts on the blog, penned 100 words of flash fiction, critiqued several manuscripts for my fellow writers and mapped out a rough plan for the next month.
Walking - I got out and about inbetween showers of heavy rain and rumbling thunder.
Things I liked about the last week.
Watching the Olympics, and seeing the many talented sportsmen and women take part in the games. Especially Team GB! It is so uplifting to see them doing well.
Capturing images of life around me with my camera.

Buying new clothes. Its been a while since I replaced my work wardrobe.
Browsing the Kindle store, and treating myself to some books.
Meeting friends for tea and chatter, and eating cake!

Going to Phoenix Writers, and being amazed by my talented writing buddies, and their stories.
Reminiscing about years gone by, then posting my thoughts and pictures here on the blog.
Things I didn't like.
Backache due to driving a courtesy car with uncomfortable seats, because my car is waiting for parts in the garage.
Sleepless nights (see above)
And so to this week, and my goals. Keeping it simple.
Writing - I will be mainly concentrating on my novel, and be assisting in judging a short story competition.
Reading - Writing Magazine, and Mugging the Muse by Holly Lisle
Mac - Continue to learn about my Mac
Cake - It will be done.
What are your goals for the week ahead? Share them here - I love receiving your comments.
