I had a pretty good writing weekend – despite my nose having decided to make things difficult for me by ignoring the fact that I’m supposed to be recovered from my cold. I hate it when that happens. You get sick, you recover, you go about your life as usual, and BAM – it turns on you with an evil smirk on its face saying “did you really think it was going to be that easy?” and starts laughing this stereotypical villain-laugh. Or, you know, something less dramatic. It’s annoying, that’s what I’m trying to say.
But, life goes on, it’s Monday and that means a new week. Life won’t stop just because I have a cold, so I’m trying to make a little plan for what I want to accomplish this week.
• WRITING GOAL: Finish editing chapter 9 of my WIP, and start chapter 10. (I’m keeping expectations low here, thereby making it easier to surpass it and subsequently making myself super proud. The creative process usually benefits from a little self-manipulation.)
• YOUTUBE GOAL: Make a vlog about writing and editing chapters for Youtube, hopefully to be uploaded on Thursday.
• OTHER: Start drawing my second map for my WIP, this time a world map including other countries. This would be in preparation for next weeks’ video.
I think this should be enough. I haven’t included other stuff like updating my blog or my Instagram, as those are obviously included somewhere in between the larger tasks. I feel quite pleased. Time to get started!
Let’s end this blog entry with a photo from my trip to Edinburgh.

… and I'm home again – sporting a terrible cold complete with a sore throat and rising temperature. Oh well, at least I had fun. • This photo portrays yours truly below the enormous hill upon which Edinburgh Castle was built. An incredibly fine Medieval fortress that makes my history loving heart squeal with pleasure. 😍👏🏰 • Now I'm going to spend some much needed time recuperating. I hope the rest of you had an awesome weekend! • #edinburgh #writerlife #amwriting #writers #writewritewrite #writing #writinganovel #writersofinsta #writersofig #writingabook #indieauthors #iwriteya #yaauthor #author #storytellers
