In July six glorious work free weeks stretched before me. My possibilities were endless. Now sadly they are drawing to a close. I realise many of you might be shouting abuse at me for having long holidays but frankly I don’t care, it one of the few perks left to being a teacher!
Now it’s over and I’m getting that nagging, did I waste my time, feeling. When I started writing for fun at the beginning of the year this summer was when I planned to have my first draft finished. I haven’t, I’m nowhere near finished. I have, however read through all nine chapters and added a sub-plot which adds meat to main character and helps make sense of the whole story arc.
I have managed two extra new chapters which fill in some of the gaps in my story.
I think the most effort has gone into my blog this summer. A lot of blog posts and over doubled my followers breaking through the 100 barrier. I’ve even written a few blog posts in reserve in case I get some manic weeks when I’m back at school.
Writing aside it’s not been too bad personally either with a family holiday to London. On the down side my boat is still out of the water and I didn’t get the garden done either.
As with all things I must remember to focus on the positives and not dwell on the negatives. So everything considered it’s been a good summer!
