I should be writing, well I am writing this now but I should be concentrating on writing my book and not writing another blog post.
I spend far too much time procrastinating especially on Facebook and Twitter, it seems to be a common trait among us writers, but look I am actually calling myself a WRITER these days – hahahahaha – how far I have come!
Today I found this snoopy cartoon on Facebook.
Whereas Snoopy has given up and crumpled up his writing I haven’t. Snoopy’s resignation has spurred me on to continue.
I want my story to be told and the best person to write it is ME!
A few years ago I bought a card which said
“DON’T LET SOMEONE ELSE WRITE YOUR STORY”
Open it up and it reads
“THEY’D MAKE IT TOO SMALL”
I can’t tell you now whether I bought it before or after Andrew died but it is another reminder to WRITE and KEEP WRITING!
This evening I visited a friend who has just acquired a pile of fabulous fabric samples, usually I'd drool and think about what I could do with them.
"We need some new projects." I declared.
"I'd like to cover the sofa." said my friend.
I thought long and hard about what I would really, really LIKE to do.
Suddenly the thought occurred to me, "I want to write my book!"
I hope to have the first draft finished before the summer holidays.
My aim is to finish chapters 3 and 4 this week then I’ll return to the blog... for a progress report, maybe a bit of flash fiction and some procrastination - but only a little bit!
