  1. Hello Everyone,
    I dropped off for a few days, off on a business trip – back again. Trick is can I catch-up. Saturday here already – off to do another writing course – on grammar this time. Watch this space.

  2. I’ve written about 500 words around Louis Armstrong’s ‘ When The Red Red Robin Comes Bob Bob Bobbing Along’. I’m sure it will be about 1200 when it’s finished. Rather obviously it’s a tune which symbolises how a couple met. I’m quite pleased with how it’s going so I will work on this story later as well I think.

  3. Checking in to say I’m still writing. The story shapes from Making Shapely Fiction have provided a nice constraint to work with. Today I wrote a day-in-the-life story, with the idea being to focus on the odd and particular details of a routine. I set it in an overnight shelter. A bit roughed-in, but this is one I’ll return to.

    I’m finding this challenge has been great for establishing a routine. Although I don’t always get to the desk at 8 PM sharp, as I did that first week, I do find that it consistently takes me 2-2.5 hours to exhaust the idea, unless I start really late and am falling asleep at the page (ultimately abandoning what I’m writing). So there’s good motivation to have a little discipline and evidence that making time to write is fruitful.

  4. I decided to press ‘random’ on my digital music collection and I got Seal’s rendition of “I Put a Spell on You.” Surprised to come up with a few pages worth (new pen, finished old journal!), applying it to four characters at different points in their lives.
