I'm not into cars.

I loathe driving.

In spite of the above, I love Top Gear. Now that alone must qualify it as serious entertainment.

Back to gym

Ok, I've been slacking off. I let my gym membership lapse back in April. I hadn't been regular to gym for some time before that.

But I have to go for two reasons.
  1. it's good for me 
  2. I have a shoulder I seriously damaged a couple of years back and going to gym helps me keep it working well. It's been getting a bit stiff and sore lately, because I haven't been going much.
If I can keep up gym and stay off the junk food, I should start losing weight. Or at least not gain if I eat junk food.

This is only for the strong of mind and stomach

When clearing out things from my mother's house, we found a print copy of my first (and currently only) novel.

First novel == it's not going to be brilliant. But I've been typing it in lately, to get a feel for it, and with some work after the current copy is typed in, it might be ok. Maybe.

If you have a need to read something now and quality is something for lesser mortals, Here is Chapter one of Ted the Dragon.

Happiness is

Wearing my new serious kick-ass boots. I really love them.

Now I need someone to take a picture. Pictures taken
Discreet, just footwear with a skirt.

Kneehigh kick ass boots under that skirt.

More on Nanowrimo

So, I've actually signed up. No idea at this stage what I might actually write but I have a couple of months to think about it.

My profile is up though very uninformative at the moment. And I've discovered Scrivener, a Mac application that is specially for writing novels/screenplays. It has a lot of features that look potentially useful. Corkboard, auto outlines, notes, character sheets and more. I need to play with it now so in Nov, it's something I'm used to working with.

In November

November is Nanowrimo month. Nanowrimo is National Novel Writers Month. Basically, in 30 days you write a complete 50,000 word novel. You can plan it before hand, write up an outline, do character sketches. The novel must be started on the 1st of Nov and completed by the 30th.

I have decided to take part. The novel written in 30 days won't be perfect but it will be there and ready to be improved on. I even have a twitter friend who has decided to try as well.

30 days, one novel. It will be worth it.

Writing tip

I'd heard before that writing daily is good for your writing skills in general.

And I must say that it does seem to be working for me. Writing every day keeps the words flow much more easily. Whether it is part of a publish or just working on background stuff doesn't matter. Just write. Write often. Keep writing. etc. :)
