I just thought I’d drop out a quick entry to my blog because its been nearly two weeks since I did. The reason I’ve been less able to is mainly that I’ve been caught up in writing. Some of you may know that I dabble in writing. I plan to have my first book (seventh written, but first good enough in my opinion) out towards the end of January on kindle. Meanwhile I am writing number eight and its going great guns. its about time travel and has proven a very interesting thought exercise for me as well as finding out historical concepts.
All in all its basically taken over my life.
Writing is great. Other authors will know what I mean but once you get into the flow you kind of lose track of time and then almost come to two hours later and think, hang on, I didn’t want my characters to do that. Sometimes you have no choice over what they do, its all very interesting.
So if I’ve not seen you, or seemed distracted… sorry.
Or if you are bored of my random Facebook questions…. sorry.
Finally if you are bored about hearing me talk about my book…. sorry.
Great, that should cover everyone!
Either way its been three weeks now and I’m about three quarters through. I reckon with a decent tailwind I need about another week or so.
In true geek style I have been keeping track of my word count everyday. I find this keeps me disciplined and lets me know I’m on track. See below for spread sheet.
The first column is the date. I started on the 15th of December. The next is how much I’d written against the daily goal. Then the cumulative amount is my running total against the aim. Hopefully its self explanatory, but those of you who know me know I like to complicate things…..
|Day||Amount written||Daily Goal||To do for goal||cumulative amount||aim|
Hope everyone is well. I’ll be back to the real world soon……. unless I start the second in the series straight away……
