Today’s positive…watching the sun setting after a productive and very hot Saturday catching up on domestics, editing a friend’s short story and stocking my fridge with delicious fresh food. Nothing satisfies more than feeling a sense of ‘having achieved’.
A great start for any day. Especially if you have a big day ahead of writing or editing. It’s important to eat nourishing food that will help ward of those ‘need to eat snacks’ moments we all get when in writing lock down.
I find starting the day with a nourishing and filling breakfast helps. At least I hopefully won’t have to hit the chocolates till after lunch 😁
Porridge is my favourite.
1. Microwave organic rolled oats mixed with banana and milk till soft.
2. Stir in super seed mix and cinnamon
3. Add dollop of natural yoghurt and a few prunes.
And of course enjoy with freshly brewed large coffee.
Today’s positive…a fun afternoon of editing and critiquing with my writers group. Love how we write such diverse genres yet we all enjoy everyone’s work.
Today’s positive…Saturday night in reading my editors feedback. I’m excited and thrilled to get into the rewrite, new ideas and characterisations buzzing around my head.
Today’s positive… received my first full structural edit from my editor, and I am thrilled with the level of constructive and in-depth report I was sent. So much work to do but it feels so good to have some direction and guidance. If you need an editor Jessica Trudel is certainly recommended.
Today’s positive…discovered a new podcast called The First Time. Lots of interesting tips and talks with newbie authors going through publishing for the first time.
Today’s positive…received a super exciting email notice today from a Canadian twitter contact.
I have been given a free development edit, and have just sent her my manuscript. This is invaluable and the first time anyone will read the whole novel. Really looking forward to the feedback. Also a little scared 🙂
Thank you to Jessica Trudel.
