As some of you know, we have a kitten. We didn’t get him so much as he showed up, has been here for a month, and my husband has accepted the fact that he’s now a part of the family. He is getting braver, and more friendly, and I foresee many lovely snuggles with him in the future. In the meantime, he likes to sit in the office with me while I write, which is nice.
His name is Oliver (yes, as in ‘please sir, can I have some more?’ He is often hungry). Ollie for short. Most of the household is delighted with this addition 🙂
I’ve decided I need to get back to basics with my writing again after emailing with a writing buddy this morning. It always comes back to ’10 minutes’, so this week I am making a point to do some of my own writing for at least ten minutes a day. It’s very easy to put it off, to read stories for the anthology instead, to critique other peoples work, to do proofreading for my job and completely ignore my own stuff. But in order to feed myself, keep myself happy and balanced, I NEED to make my writing a priority. Even if only in small chunks.
Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be able to report good progress on the writing, as well as with Oliver.
