Writers block, procrastination and a busy life

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

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
