Here I am, a writer who’s unpublished, and never will be if I don’t finish my editing. I’ve finally worked out how but I’m struggling to make the time and get the right ‘head space’.
Sunday, perfect timing, and yet, it’s only a week till AtoZchallenge starts. 26 posts in a month that I want to pre-post so I can go on holiday. 26 posts that I only agreed to do because they were research for my novels. You know, those 3 draft novels that I’m trying to find time to research and edit, because all I really want to do is draft the next one, or two.
I can hear you, wanting me to write about earth hour last night, wanting me to write about the weather as only us Brits can.. yes this time last year we were less than 2 weeks away from a hosepipe ban right before the wettest summer, like, forever. Sshhh, I’m trying to edit.
What’s that? Oh it’s you, the snow’s covered your water and you’d like the fast food station to open now. No, I wasn’t doing anything important, just trying to edit.
In case you’re interested, here’s the AtoZchallenge titles that I may or may not get around to writing. Even this list is still in draft form so don’t get too excited or bored by any of them, yet.
