Hello everyone. Happy Friday. Well, it’s the middle of November, and the year is racing away from us. I swear time has grown jet engines. Maybe that’s a sign of getting older too. I remember as a kid, the school summer holidays seemed to last forever …
More slow-and-steady writing done this week. I’m having to take extra care as I have a painful arm and shoulder from an old injury that is playing up again. Despite exercises and physio, it seems determined to get worse. Smooth supermarket floors, squashed grapes, and walking with crutches are not a great combination. Now, years later, I’m revisiting that torn muscle. Not fun. At least, as I wrote last week, I can still manage 500 words a day. Always a silver lining! 🙂 … And I’m REALLY enjoying this first draft.
Here are this week’s writing resources. Have a great weekend, everyone 🙂
