|What You Looking At? - Maria A Smith|
All Change! The clocks have gone back, and for me that heralds change. Not only is it darker in the evenings, which curtails some of my pastimes like walking after the evening meal, its also a good productive time for my writing. I seem to get far more done.
I won't be doing NaNo WriMo though this year, instead I'll be rewriting my novel. After a really productive meeting with a fellow writer on Saturday, I have a new restructured plan. Strange how two heads are better than one when it comes to sorting out worries about plot and character.
My emphasis for the next month will be to rewrite one chapter a week. It is doable. I have roughed out a schedule in my diary, and although I know this will probably alter on a week to week basis, I am going to try and do my best to stick to regular slots.
I am now in the Chair at Phoenix Writers for the next month, which means I'll have a little extra administrative work to do, as well as setting the weekly writing challenge. Lots of fun to be had there!
Last week, I got out for a few short walks, both of them in daylight, I'm not sure how I'll fit walking in now, but I'll definitely try out some new times if I can, or perhaps think about visiting a gym. Ugh! Perish the thought...did I really write that? The weather is dodgy too, as I type, Britain is being battered by heavy storms. Do you think the animals in the picture above knew something? I couldn't resist snapping them. They looked so strange in their field, just standing there like statues.
What else? Its that time of year to bring out the stewpot, and I must say I'm really looking forward to some delicious soups and stews. I'm enjoying the veggie boxes I've recently ordered, and so far, have managed to use everything up. I hate wasting food. Its also the porridge season officially! Although I'm an all year round fan.
My youngest will turn eighteen at the end of the week. Thats truly frightening. Where have the years gone? They'll be a family celebration at some point, when she can fit us in-between friends and birthday outings. Oh to be young again! Err no...I'm not sure I'd survive.
Do share what you've been up to? Or what your plan is over the next week? I love hearing your news, and if you are doing NaNoWriMo, good luck, its fun and frenzied, and you'll feel so good when you hit the magic 50k!
