I got as far as my first stop which was the newsagent to buy a lottery ticket for the $21 million draw tonight (yeah I can only hope).
Whilst there I discovered that hardcover notebooks were on special, because I need just one more to add to the five hundred and three I already have. Plus it was pink, a houseful of boys and a lifetime of blue and you'll understand my penchant for pink and girly things.
Next stop was the Rivers Clearance store because I needed a new pair of shoes, okay so I have almost as many pairs of shoes as I do notebooks. Instead there I sat in the car park scribbling in my new notebook, trying to make sense of all of the ideas racing around my head. I eventually went home with work shirts for youngest, NO new shoes and pages of notes.
It's been the longest of times since I've just wanted to write fiction and been in a state where I haven't been able to concentrate on anything else. Not before time mind you. I'm thinking its a combination of the relief of getting out of a job that was sapping my energy, attending a certain inspiring writing group and finally being back in my happy place again.
No life isn't all smooth sailing and roses and sunshine, I'm a mother with teenage boys after all, but it's so much easier to deal with things and feel inspired once you throw off the suffocating chains.
This week I've also updated the cover of my fiction novel, it needed something and I like that it seems brighter. I've also published my non fiction 'Project Manage Your World' e-book on Amazon as well.
On the job front, I had a successful interview last Thursday and have another two to come, plus several other options in the wind. Feeling good about my prospects.
My most difficult decision at the moment seems to be deciding on suitable character names. Now that the writing bug has fully kicked in, you just know that I'm going to get a job offer don't you?
So what's been the best part of your week?
Also to several of my dearest on line buddies who are doing it kind of tough at the moment, here's hoping your coming week has an element of 'awesomeness' in it in some shape or form. Cyber hugs xx
