Well I must confess I’ve been very naughty; lost heart and until today didn’t write a word for two weeks or maybe more. But today I kicked myself up my lazy slacker a**e and wrote some more of my novel. Okay I only wrote about three hundred words but at least I wrote something. I still plan to have my first draft finished by Christmas; I would like to motivate myself to blog more often too but I know what I’m like. I tend to come up with enormous grand plans for conquering the universe (metaphorically speaking) and do loads for a few days and then run out of steam and give up completely! So I’m trying to set myself smaller and possibly more achieveable targets. That way I can feel good when I achieve something and not beat myself up because I’m not ruler of the Universe yet!
