Celebrate the Small Things 29-6-18

This post is part of Lexa Cain's bloghop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!

What am I celebrating this week?

I had a a really weird week this week.  Part of it was wonderful because I had my two good friends from Berlin here and it was so much fun to see them and show them around for a couple of days.  And part of it was horrible because things at work are quite tense at the moment and navigating various people and situations has been challenging.

I'm glad it's the weekend and I can spend a couple of days relaxing and getting my head together.

I also started a new book this week.  I didn't mean to, but somehow the story that's been brewing in my head demanded to come out, so I started writing.  And to keep myself disciplined and on track with this, I've decided to use the daily writing prompts on WDC to inform and spark each day's 1000 word or less chapter.

This book is deamanding to be told in an epistorial style, so by using the prompts, I'm writing one diary entry for my MC per day, and in about 40 days or so, I hope to have the bones of the story written.

We shall see if it works...  And in between, I need to edit the last 2 chapters of my older book.  Hopefully I can get that done in the next couple of weeks because we're getting close to the film festival and that's always the craziest time of my year.  So I'd like to be done editing before it starts...

What are you celebrating this week?


  1. What an interesting way to write an early draft. Using writing prompts. I'm in the middle of a re-write at present, but when I start my next book I may try that. Thanks for the inspiration. Sorry things are difficult at work. I hope the situation improves soon.

  2. Sounds like an interesting new story. Good luck with it.

  3. Sometimes those stories just itch to be written. I hope you have fun with it.

  4. I wish that I had as much self-discipline as you appear to have. I think that I may follow your lead and try writing prompts to stimulate my creativity. Good luck with the new book. The film festival sounds interesting. I would love to hear more about it.
