I thought about the lost souls of war. The families left behind, without their loved ones, and it made me feel sad.
It is right and fitting that we should honour the men and women who have given the ultimate sacrifice, so that the rest of us may live freely today.
I sincerely hope we never forget.
Last week passed in a flash, and I got quite a bit done on the WIP, especially after I watched a documentary which followed the best selling crime writer, Ian Rankin as he wrote his latest novel. If you missed it you can read, about it here where you'll find a link to the programme on BBC iPlayer, its well worth a view. You will be motivated.
I've split my novel into scenes, I'm re-working each one. Its a more manageable way for me. Mainly because I'm so time poor, and I can focus on one scene more easily, instead of trying to wrestle huge chunks of the story.
In other writing news, I've started a Competitions and Submissions club, and on Saturday I held the first meeting which was well received. I was pleasantly surprised at the turn out, a very enthusiastic bunch of writers set to and made plans, it'll be interesting to see in a month how they have each got on in their quest to be published.
The week ahead will be spent working on the WIP and there definitely be cake! What are you going to do for the next week?
