I know I’ve been absent from my blog for a while. Well actually from my writing my novel a bit too. I didn’t even take part in WIPpet Wednesday this week.
The reason is that I’m preoccupied with work matters. May sound boring, actually quite exciting. Today was my first morning of my work experience with Bristol City Council (here in the-sometimes-sunny UK!).
It went really well, but I was very nervous last night and apprehensive, not to say completely knackered, which is why I didn’t take part in WIPpet Wednesday. The people I’m going to be working with were really friendly though, and welcoming which was great. I think the work is going to be good and I’m excited about it.
Just to confuse you, I found out today that I’ve got an interview for a part time paid job (the work experience is unpaid). So I feel like I’m in a win win situation – if I get the paid job that’s fantastic, if not I’ve still got the work experience to be doing.
In the first paragraph of this post I mentioned that I’d been absent from my writing. I can explain! I’ve done well over 4000 words on my new WIP. But although I know where I want it to go at the end, as well as some of the action that takes place in the middle, I wasn’t sure how to carry on from where I’d initially got to.
So I’ve gone back to the drawing board so to speak. I’m fleshing out scenes that could take place between my MC and my other characters immediately after where I’ve got up to on the computer. This is going well but taking a while, so I’ve been away from my lovely pink laptop for a while and curled up on the sofa scribbling away in my notebook.
Phew! So now you’re pretty much up to date with where I’m at. I hope to be doing more proper writing soon and taking part in WIPpet Wednesday again next week – lack of tiredness permitting!
Happy Writing Everyone! 😀
