Very short report today. We have guest for the long bank holiday and time for writing down to a minimum. After glorious sunshine for the past week it, the weather has decided in true British fashion to rain (again) on the Queens Jubilee. So the sight of 1,000 boats rowing, paddling, steaming and sailing down the River Thames will be viewed through wet old rain – well it was the same on her Coronation Day, so no surprise there, but it does seem a shame. The dog is dried from a sog-making walk in the park. Hot coffee has been consumed by all. I dash this off before lunch is needed.
In my life goals
I finished sanding and repainting the exterior woodwork on the house, as it was so hot this had to be done at silly o’clock! But it is done and just before the rain returned – Yay, one to strike off my list:)
Well Alberta’s triathlon proceeds slowly. I can only manage 2 mins on bike before knees are so painful I need to cease, the dog walking seems to be stuck at 30 mins, has been for a few weeks now – annoying I can’t seem to move it on. The gardening/step machine – it has been gardening this last week, with bending and stretching for the painting, tug of war still, with perennial weeds in wild garden and sweeping and cleaning contributing all round workouts. Now it’s raining again and will be from all reports for another week I will be transferring to the step machine.
The fun part
This last month I have been in the short story -1 a day in May challenge and although quite a few I wrote would need a head transplant to make them workable I have now 31 new short stories:) so very pleased with that
June 1st started writing the City’s Tale for JuNoWrMo challenge. 50,000 words in the month and so far have exceeded each day’s goals. I have a mass of ideas but, with visitors here, I can only really carve out a couple of hours for myself so will try and write 2,500 a day and, maybe, sprint higher word counts at end of week, when they have gone. Pleased with the shape the story is taking. It is the 4th of the Sefuty Chronicles.
This month I want to
Keep up with JuNo and get the bulk of this Tale down.
Post more on blog sites.
Increase my networking efforts
Revamp trailer for Ellen’s Tale and begin Storyteller’s video.
I hope everyone is doing well and all the best for coming week.
