These are all the excuses I use that have stopped me from completing a novel or writing an award winning blog. One of my many New Year’s resolutions is to concentrate more on my writing. I plan to improve the look of this and my other blog www.older-power.co.uk. I plan to complete my two novels that are still very much in draft form. I love writing short stories and flash fiction and I plan to do more.
But it will have to wait until Monday – I can’t do it today or tomorrow. I have a big family meal and a Sunday roast to cook, my grandson’s 4th birthday party to attend, at least 8 more wash loads to do, the house is a mess, my bedroom needs decorating …. oh dear excuses again.
I can’t even have a glass of wine as I am doing the dry January thing for cancer research. So I will have a large glass of ginger beer (non-alcoholic of course) and I will collect my thoughts and start.
Except “The Voice” is on tonight and I love that programme – and there’s the film on Sky Box Office that I have meaning to catch up on and i want to finish that mystery novel I was reading.
No Monday it is. Except I promised to pick up my middle grandson from school and the dog really could do with a long walk. See what I mean. Life just gets into the way. How did I ever find the time to hold down a demanding job?
Well I will find the time – some day. PS if you want to sponsor my dryathlon you can donate via the following link https://www.justgiving.com/MargaretAbbett-dryathlete2015
