I’m returning to Edinburgh on Monday

I got my passport back and I have a uk visa for the next five years 🙂 I go back in four days time 🙂



I’m 28 today!

I’m not sure what the rest of the year is going to bring, but I’m planning on being more productive with my writing and I want to put out four stories by the end of the year 🙂 I’m on my way there so here’s hoping I’ll reach my goal 🙂

New home in time for Xmas

It’s been a month since I returned to Edinburgh and I have barely written anything. We had a bit of trouble finding stable accommodation. We’ve been staying in motels, a friend’s large cupboard and then his room while he was gone, but now we’ve moved into a new place that does month by month rent.

Finding a place in Edinburgh has been really difficult. I never realized that it was going to be this hard. I can see how people become a bit homeless sometimes 😦 So many places also employed the tactic of requesting money first before even seeing the room. Yikes!! No way!

It was stressful and a bit depressing, but now that we’ve moved into this new place I should be calming down and getting into a routine. I’ve also had to take the bus to work now 😦 I wish I lived closer, but it’s just too expensive 😦

I was hoping to have one of my novella’s out for the new year, but I do not think that is going to happen 😦 I have a new appreciation for those writers who have to commute to work a lot.

Only 6 days until Xmas.

20 Days of blogs: Day 18

Friday, 17th November ’17

I editing finished the last 10 pages of The Things We Do. Which seemed to go on forever. I then spent the rest of the day looking online to see if it might be a good thing for me to put my upcoming novellas in the KDP Select program.

I haven’t thrown myself into the whole marketing side of writing because I am a quieter person. I’m planning on taking the slow but steady route. Where I’m going to get a bunch of stories out and then begin to put my presence. Because then I would already have a bunch of stories out there for people to read 🙂

20 Days of blog posts: Day 17

Thursday, 16th November ’17

I managed to edit 31 pages of my novella The Things We Do. I have another 10 pages to go, but I’m just too tired. I had already given this story to some people to read a few months ago. They said that they liked it and wanted to know what happened after the book finished. I’m not sure if I want to write a sequel, I don’t have much of an idea of what the next journey will be.

But as I was going over it again, I saw a lot of mistakes. I mean quite a lot. It makes me wonder what my friends thought of my writing. I know one person only managed the first few chapters because they started it stoned and then forgot about it 😦 Thanks for that.
