Monday madness!

Well, it is true what they say…never eat cheese late at night and never work just before bed.

Having been somewhat of a snotty flu-ridden mess yesterday, in celebration of finishing my play in a day, I decided to do some serious writing.

Staying in bed for most of the day, watching the dogs play wildly outside while the buzzards enjoyed swooping on them, a tantalising display of ‘Catch me if you can!’, I completed my Year One play – full of silly skits and cheesy jokes, then proceeded to do more work on Book 2.

Oh dear! What a mistake! Got so wrapped up in what I was writing, I didn’t stop til nearly 2am, then, of course, couldn’t sleep and had some alarming dreams when I did! What an idiot? Think I dropped off somewhere after 3 before the alarm went at 6:20!

Seriously, MUST try and write earlier in the evening! Why oh why does inspiration have to strike at such ridiculous hours?

To all fellow insomniacs, I wish you a goodnight’s sleep! 😀


That Friday feeling!

The glorious weekend is here again. Yeah!

Why do we all live for those two little days, when they fly by so fast and we never achieve even a fraction of the list of things we want to? Nevertheless, I certainly disproportionately look forward to my weekends. That feeling of NOT setting the alarm…bliss! Of sinking into a bath without watching the clock, the happiness of shuffling around in slippers and wearing jeans or joggy bottoms instead of work clothes, or letting your hair go wild and dirty for the whole weekend. Ah! Slouching is great…! 😛

So, apart from DIY, much needed at the new house, this weekend is packed as usual.

Got to continue illustrations for White Mountain, the publishers are being patient as we’re in the copy-edit stage, but I do need to crack on with them. Very laborious to do as they’re rather detailed ink drawings but still great fun! Got to continue writing Book 2, ‘Darkling Rise’ – very much in its infancy but starting to shape up nicely. Have naturally got a ton of work from…er…work, marking, planning, all very dull. Also work related, but more fun, I’ve got to write a Year One Play! Only a few weeks to go to do rehearsals, costumes, scenery, lighting, props etc and haven’t started yet! So, will I get it all done? Er…probably not!

Looking forward to snow too, if we get it! 😀
