Catching up

Posting early today as I couldn’t get the blog to load last night.
I spent most of the day working on lessons for my 2 new pupils, then working on the book. The book has slowed down regarding the word count, in fact, it went backwards, yesterday as I cut out a few bits and edited others, but I’m getting there – page 65 out of 175.
I have finally decided that my lodger has to go so I’ve given him notice. Being soft, kind, stupid (!), I’ve given him until the end of May so that he should be gone by my end of June birthday. It’s a big decision for me and one I really pray I can stick to. Sharing space with somebody you really don’t get on with can be very draining, especially emotionally, and if I want to get back to writing good short stories, I don’t need that in my life.
I spoke to my publisher (I stil think that sounds amazing) yesterday and he’s talking about fixing a lunch date about two months after the book is actually ready so that he can market it, send out advance copies and so on. I think that’s a great idea. It gives me time to drum up some interest. I haven’t decided on the date yet. I’m thinking April Fool’s Day……

  1. That's plenty of time for your lodger to find somewhere else. Stick to your guns, new year, new you.
