279 days to go: Mind The Gap
Today was a difficult day. I love to write but the whole day was dedicated to writing my annual report for my first year as writer in residence.
If that was not bad enough I then had to find every receipt to account for my £1,000 project fund.
It was not an inspiring day and to distract myself for a while I went for a run!
However, it is done now and I can relax - for another year.
But there were good points to today. I had to set up a new email address as my blueyonder one seems to have gone to ground. I sent a blanket email to everyone in my address book to inform them of my new address. As a result lots of old friends got in touch including my old Features editor, Fiona and a lovely lady called Lindsey who we met on holiday.
And having all the admin out of the way I can focus on more creative pursuits. I have agreed to embark on the madness of NaNoWriMo wiht my friend Jenn. Jenn is trying to finish her second novel and I am trying to complete my first. NaNoWriMo challenges writers to complete a novel in the month of November.
It doesn't have to be great - you just have to commit yourself to writing around 2,000 words a day.
I have just enough time to clear my decks.
Today I wore some more ebay bargains including this fab skirt from Gap, shrug worn as a wrap top from Gap, Whistles shirt, grey camisole and blue boots from Whistles.
