My Week in Review and Writing Links

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I had a slow start to the week with Monday being my first full day out of bed since Friday morning. The flu really knocked me off my feet. While I still feel exhausted and my arms still ache, I’m definitely a lot better. Thank you all for your well wishes.

I’ve written about 2,200 words on my novel in progress, as well as generated ideas and written story beginnings on 20 flash fictions, which will finish at 500 words each.

As an aside, I had a gruesome time searching Pixabay for an image to go with this week’s quote, having put in ‘Monsters’, lol. Feeling a bit squeamish, I soon replaced the search term with ‘ghosts’! 🙂

Meanwhile, while out in a local village visiting relatives, we saw a string of little red triangular flags in the doctor’s surgery window, which gave us all a giggle. I forgot to take a picture, but it looked something like this …

Can you spot the giggle factor?

Of course, having warped humour like mine, my fiancé exclaimed, ‘Pregnant … aged 65 or over?!?!’

Ah well, I supposed we’d better move on to this week’s writing links and resources 🙂

Thanks for the links, Harmony. Have a super weekend

Glad you are recovering, Harmony. The flu is NO fun at all! Love the giggle. 🙂 That would be grounds for suicide. 🙂

D.L. Finn

Glad you are feeling better. I can’t imagine being pregnant and 65…lol

Mae Clair

So glad you’re feeling better, Harmz. The flu is one NASTY illness.

Love the King quote. As for the sign in the doc’s window I think they need to make an adjustment. I was like—who the heck is 65 or older and pregnant, LOL!

Staci Troilo

Glad you’re back on your feet, your website woes are over, and you’re making writing progress. All good news.

I love that Stephen King quote. Pixabay can be a time suck. I don’t think I ever creeped myself out on it, though. That’s kind of funny. So was the doctor’s sign.

Thanks for including my SE link. Have a great weekend.
