I may, or I may not have mentioned before that I am a co-author on another blog called the Pyjama Club. It's a blog that a number of lovely ladies and myself write short articles and poetry about things that are important to us. We also have a theme week and will then write something on the nominated topic. The topic this week was pets, and I've just done one on my dog Roxie. I am linking back to it if you want to read it, and perhaps read some of the other great pieces done. Read it here 'Unconditional Love'
I set myself a to-do list this weekend. One was to finish off a poem I was doing for Jane Isaac as she has asked me to guest blog for her. (I cannot tell you how honoured I was to be asked that!) and I can now tick that off as done. I'm not sure if she will like the poem, but I have given her an opt out if she needs it, (I have literally turned myself inside out doing that one!) but if it does get published I will link back to her site.
Secondly was to do a blog posting. I am doing that right now and have done the one for PJ's.
And thirdly was to finish Jane Isaac's novel 'An Unfamiliar Murder'. Now, unless I walk away from this computer right now and switch on my kindle, I will not be able to finish it today. I am only about 20% of the way through, and I have to be honest, I am plenty surprised by how much I am enjoying it. I'll review the book once I'm done. At which time, I will rave about it and this very exciting up and coming novelist.
So, I guess 2 out of 3 isn't bad? I know I really ought to do more blogging. Its not that I don't think about it, I do. And once I sit myself down in front of the PC and start typing, the words just flow freely. But I am so easily distracted by things such as Twitter and TV series and whatever, that its something I have to physically make myself do.
Like most people, I can be emotional. And I always find that I do my best work when I'm morbid or emotionally upset about something. When I'm happy etc, its just that little bit harder. I'll try sort it out!
