I've had a great couple of weeks - Hubby, the kids and the dog were all away for a time, so I used the empty house to my advantage and wrote. My plan was to write 25 flash fiction pieces in a week, and I rose to the challenge. Since then, I've been typing up the best of them - there are 19 good ones, and 6 that are going to languish in my notebook. I'm currently writing some new ones, and considering entering a couple of flash fiction competitions...
In the last post, I mentioned my Personal Training course, and putting all the new stuff I've been learning into practise. Or, to be more exact, putting into practise all the stuff I knew before but forgot... like, if you want to get fitter and lose that last bit of body fat, then intensity is key. I've been working so much harder, in less time. I leave the gym, each and every time, looking a bit zombiefied, but feeling awesome.
Drop me a message if you want to know the secret ;-)
And finally, I've been interviewed on Write with Fey today. Please stop by and say hi - I'm sharing some random facts, my writing process and what my old English teacher thinks of me!
It's probably time for an update, seeing as though the last post was about a giveaway that happened weeks ago.
My excuse is that it's August, my kids are home from school, and I'm doing a course to become a personal trainer. It's really interesting to look more deeply into all the things I've been using as a fitness instructor for the past five years. My body is a little less keen on all the advanced training I'm putting it through at the moment - it's been a great way to realise I've been coasting at the gym for a while... and now all my muscles hurt!
There's also been a lot of puppy walking, and puppy playing, and puppy-telling-off. He's worse than a toddler, and likes to cause mischief when he's tired but fighting sleep.
I've been getting some writing done. I've had an idea for another short story collection, although at the moment it's too weird a concept to explain - hopefully it'll straighten itself out once I start to write. At the moment, most of my writing has taken the form of staring into space while watching endless reruns of The Big Bang Theory.
It's my writing process, and I'm sticking to it :-)
