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 🙂
