I've had a few new followers here recently, so I thought I'd check in.
I'm in the midst of the school summer holidays, so I'm not getting as much done as I wanted. But I am jotting down notes for my next book (in my oh-so cool Tardis notebook) and I'm querying agents with my last book.
Querying is hard. I have several lists of agents that I keep referring to, different files on my computer depending on their requirements. I'm checking and double-checking their websites, and wondering (regularly) whether I've chosen the right genre for my book. It's a novel that could be classed as literary or a thriller or crime (at a stretch) or... something else entirely.
I still plan to get back into the photo challenge which I stopped rather abruptly a couple of weeks ago, but I want to step up my creativity. I realised I was taking snaps, but I really want to share photos that make people go wow - like the ones I see on other people's blogs and websites.
Hopefully the rest of the summer will be slightly less wet and windy. I've got a summer dress I haven't worn yet!
This weekend, I have mostly been knocking down a garage and using the rubble as hardcore for a new patio - so I haven's spent much time at my laptop.
So, routine? I go to work, but even that isn't much of a routine because I work on a two week rota - one week busy, but with random hours, the next week not so much.
Not even my writing has a proper routine. In fact, the only thing I stick to - almost to an extreme - is my gym workout. And this is it. (If you look closely, you might be able to see what a weakling I am!)
I've been going to the gym for 15 years now, and started recording my workouts after training to become an instructor 7 years ago. I love the fact I can look back to see how my lifts compare - although due to injury, some of my numbers have remained stubbornly the same (and I ignore those - my biceps, for example, have remained almost exactly the same...)
Do you have routines, or do you prefer to go with the flow? Do you write down your gym workout, and does it make you push harder to achieve your goals?
