Celebrate the Small Things 1-5-15
This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things (Lexa has just taken it over from VikLit who has hosted it for the last 2 years). Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
The A - Z blogging challenge is over! It's been fun, but boy has it been hard work this year. I went without a theme and just winged it each day which was far more challenging than I thought. Especially since most of my posts ended up being written at the ass-crack of dawn or last thing at night before I went to sleep. But I made it. Four years running now!
I'm also celebrating being back in my writing routine. I took a couple of weeks off (which I really enjoyed), but getting back into the writing habit hasn't been as hard as I expected. Actually writing the book I hoped to write, well… That's a whole other story!
And that's about it from me this week. It's one of the weeks where all the applications for production funding come in at work, so I have a huge pile of proposals and scripts to read. Plus half my team are going to Cannes at the end of next week, so the day job is pretty darned busy!
I guess I'm grateful to be writing at all! I probably shouldn't even be attempting it right now….
What are you celebrating this week?

Congrats to finishing A to Z! And way to go with your writing.ReplyDelete
People from your work are going to Cannes? Hope you can change departments to whatever theirs is. Congrats on completing the A-Z! Keep up the writing on the new story. I'm sure you can make it what you want it to be! :)ReplyDelete
Good for you for completing. It's not easy :). You sound super busy this week. Be sure to take some time to relax, too.ReplyDelete
Take me with you to Cannes!ReplyDelete
Hi there - we didn't get to meet on the A to Z Challenge but Katie (Cyborg Mum) has got me into the Celebrate blog hop so here I am now. You seem to be a super busy person so I am so impressed you took up and completed the Challenge FOUR times - I'm pleased with 2 so far! Have a great weekend - Special Teaching at Pempi’s PalaceReplyDelete
I think you should opt for Cannes! And I'm thinking saucy drinks with tiki umbrellas! (sigh). Your week sounds so exciting, whereas I'm celebrating my yard blocks being on sale... hmm...ReplyDelete
I didn't have a theme either, and there were several points I did not really plan well. But we both made it. Good luck getting back into a routineReplyDelete

Congratulations on completing the A-Z Challenge. I had to skip it this year as I couldn't fit it in. I hope you had a good weekend and that you are getting back on track with your routine. :-)ReplyDelete
