Reasons to be cheerful - 2nd August 2018

Well, an interesting week... A good one!

I've been really strict about looking after myself and I've been keeping in touch with my friend to let her know that I have been doing it.

Work has been super- busy...

But that's fine because I've been slowly building up my client list. I've done lots of work to make sure I'm organised and have my workflow sorted.

I've got a few new things in the pipeline which is really exciting too.

Pen and paper...

I've come to the conclusion that I really do work better when I do my first draft on paper. I tried a couple of weeks of working straight onto the computer, but it just doesn't work for me. Getting back to drafting on paper has completely freed me up and I've been able to get back to working properly (yay).

Back to blogging...
Good news! Having got back to writing on paper, the words are flowing and I'm really feeling happy about getting back to blogging.

I've also ditched the editorial calendar I'd put together. I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but I felt it just stunted me, so I deleted it and immediately felt better.

So, those are my reasons to be cheerful this week, what are yours?

  1. I am so glad that work and writing seem to be going well for you. I am cheerful that my boss is away for the next few weeks which means work will calm down a little :)

Reasons to be cheerful - 7th December 2017

1) After a day of sawing, drilling, cutting, etc, etc, and then a new bit in the boiler...We have gas! Yes, our heating, hot water and cooker are now working - the gas is fixed! SO happy after 12 days without it.

2) This morning Boyzilla was greeted by a dead RAT outside the sitting room. Whilst yucky (but not as yucky as if I'd had to clean it up), it makes me hugely proud that my cats are, well, cats.

3) The two planning tools I ordered for 2018 to help me move forward with my plans to do more writing have arrived and I'm looking forward to spending big chunks of the next four days exploring them and planning for a fantabulous year.
