This mug, received from my grandsons at Christmas, has finally given me the jolt I needed to get down to writing again. I’ve been busy with my next publication, a pirate story, working on a ‘Woo’ project and……..getting a story ready for submission in a Scottish Association of Writers competition……..ALL AT THE SAME TIME and I’ve been ‘peerie-heided’.
The story was most challenging and I addressed this by writing NOTHING! As the deadline approached I settled into it just after New Year and was down to the very last section last week. On Saturday I knuckled down and was really happy with the result. What happened next…I selected the ‘no’ option to save when closing down…and lost all the day’s work! With no recovery option accessible, somehow, there was nothing to do but start again. Lesson learned….I made sure I have AutoSave every 1 minute now!
Now that the backlog is clearing I look at my mug and reflect….and begin to realise I should be writing! Watch this space!
