An early night


I got a fair bit of the Bowler Hat sequel written today, so I’m happy. I’m also happy because I start my new job tomorrow (well, training anyway) and I can’t wait to get stuck in. It’s even writing-related, though not fiction. Yay!

So, fair warning, word counts may drop off for a bit BUT have no fear – I imagine I’ll get more lunchbreak than I’ll take food, so I intend to take a notebook in with me. Something will get done!

Talk to you tomorrow – wish me luck!


Finally back on form!


I’m finally back on form, somewhat. That’s just as well, because I’ve got a busy week coming up. Today, again, was all about the Bowler Hat sequel – I wanted to finish the chapter and wrap up a section, which I’ve now done, and of course because I’m an idiot I started on the next chapter before I could really feel accomplished about it. Oh well!

Well, that’s better…


Once again, I didn’t make it to 1000 words. I had to go out and get myself some nice new smart clothes, so I was a bit knackered when I got home (shopping centres on bank holiday weekends – not recommended).

Again, today was mostly Bowler Hat sequel time, in part because my browser decided it didn’t want to play with the Caladria site for a few hours. Oh well!

Hey, look at that, I’ve passed my August target. Good times.

An exciting day


…But very little writing got done, because I was too busy being excited and doing exciting things. Sorry!

So close!


I got a bit distracted at the last minute and missed my 1000 word daily goal by less than 70 words. On the plus side, I think I pretty much covered for that yesterday.

Today was very much Bowler Hat sequel-centric. I’m excited to submit the first installment to a publisher soon (it’s killing me to wait for the beta process to run its course, but it’s important) and now it’s beginning to look like I could even get cracking on the next one before NaNo! Who knows? I’m more than half way through this draft, anyway, so that’s good progress.

I’m on fire!


Not literally – don’t call the emergency services. However, today I have written a pretty awesome 3000 words, I’ve finally got my character out of the immediate spot of trouble he was in, and I’ve generally felt pretty good and productive.

I got a substantial amount of the Bowler Hat sequel written, and a bit more of my current Caladria project. See, I do work on that too! So, yeah, it’s been a good day.

A slow day


I had to go out again today and ended up taking a bit longer than I’d anticipated, so I’ve got a little less done than I’d hoped. Still, that’s alright. A little bit of writing a day will build up into complete stories, and whole worlds can be found in stories. I hope, eventually, someone will enjoy the stories I’m writing just now.
