NaNoWriMo Day #4

Blue skies ahead

Blue skies ahead

Yesterday was pretty much a bust when it came to writing, was way too tired after work, this wasn’t helped by getting caught up in the ever grinding news cycle. So when I got home all I wanted to do was relax and get away from the internet and read. So I only got to write yesterday’s diary entry and that has taken my month’s word total to 2555, still having a running total helps me to realise how much I actually write in a day/week/month.

Today, I’ve put together a couple of newsletter posts for a directory I volunteer with to try and get ahead of myself and having a few spare to give me some breathing space if I don’t have the time later on to write a post.

I’ve also finished reading ‘Ten Things About Writing’ – see the review here.

The next writing book I’ve picked up to read is called ‘Sin and Syntax’ by Constance Hale, this is a book I saw recommended by Andrew Wille on his self guided M.A. in Creative Writing post which I’ve still got bookmarked for use in the future.

I’ll be reading this book over the next few days continuing to give myself permission to read and develop as a writer, but alongside this I’ll be finishing ‘The Good Bear’ by Sarah Lean which has started out so well and was chosen as one of Waterstones Books of the Month.
