A Very Quick Hello

Another rushed blog. I do have one in first draft, but it needs more editing. This post will come to you in first draft format!

It is Bank Holiday Weekend here in the UK. I don't have much planned though, but the weather looks like it might be nice for a change.

I had a meeting with my mentor Friday night. We discussed planning and I am working towards having regular meetings with myself to plan the way forward.

She described it as being on the business, and being in the business. When I am writing, I am in the business and I have to forget the planning and whys and wherefores and just write. But I need to make time to plan where I want to go, and whether what I am doing is going to help or hinder those goals.

So, my first meeting has been held tonight. I have a vague idea of how to proceed. I have to focus on decluttering primarily, as I am having some help to clean the house in the next couple of weeks. And you can't clean clutter. But if my recent productivity is to go by, my writing won't be affected too much.

I have also changed my days of leaving the house to work to a Monday and a Wednesday, because the library is open longer on these days.

I've probably rambled a bit. But like I said, this is a first draft and a quick one at that.

Hopefully I can organise myself well enough over the coming weeks so I can write better topics in a more coherent way. And if there are any things that you would like me to discuss in future, please drop me a comment, or get in touch on my contacts page. I hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Hi Ingrid, I feel your pain. It's difficult getting organised, but you are making a great effort, and it WILL be worth it. I am sure it will click into place in the coming weeks and months.
    I'm assuming when you mention the library as going there to work, you mean writing and not that you have got a job there? Assuming that is correct, what a great idea. My library is part-time and sadly does not fit with my day job hours, but I find if I take my laptop out and write elsewhere I am focused and productive.

    I used to write in coffee shops, and that worked really well for me. I am working on moving stuff around to make time to do this again.

    Have a good week - I look forward to reading more about your journey next week.
