Wednesday's writing related ramblings - March 4th 2015

I managed to sneak a bit of writing time in during the move, though not as much as I'd hoped to, and then I came back online to find a huge pile of e-mails that wanted my attention, which meant I didn't get much writing time in over the past few days either.

Not to mention all the potential writing time I've been wasting waiting for e-mail and Twitter responses from the phone company throughout most of this past week. But that's a whole other story.

Alright... I admit it... I could have gotten a bit more writing time in if I spent a bit less time reading. But, honestly, some days I really didn't want to do anything more than lay on the sofa with a book after I was done with what I needed to do that day; especially after being sat at the computer for hours waiting for replies from the phone company. Not to mention the fact a couple of the books I read were excellent, so I was eager to pick them up again after I had to put them down.

Besides, I got a couple of poems written, got the final editing phase of "Home Squeak Home" completely finnished, and made some progress with the first book in the "Zeena Dragon Fae" series. So, I do have something to show for the bits and pieces of writing and editing time I managed to fit in over the past two weeks.

I'm happy with that. If you're a writer too, are you a happy writer? I hope so! :)

Whether you are or not, and whether your writing is limited to blog posts, or status updates on Facebook and Twitter, or you're a professional author, you should check out these Daily Writing Tips; the tips may help you figure out those grey areas in your grammar, or other aspects of your writing.

Few things are nicer than settling in to read after long days -- and moving makes for long days! You're already a bit on track -- and I know more to come!

Thanks, Jeanie!

It's nice to relax with a book - especially after battling with something like the phone company!

Absolutely; I quite agree!
