Well we’ve had white and red, but last weeks theme was blue.
I was somewhat under the weather, physically exhausted and mentally numb. The pleasure of being offered a job wore off as quick as I realised what it would do for my finances – that is nothing. I’ve been offered a significantly lower salary than the job was advertised at. If I had another option I’d take it.
That dragged my mood down some and robbed me of concentration. I didn’t get much done in the week and the weekend was lost in catching on some sleep. Oh, and a ton of ironing. So I’ve bent my resolutions missed a weeks blogging and haven’t read Writing Magazine at all. Mind with doing the ironing I put Lovefilm on and managed to watch the whole of season one of “afterlife”, a programme I was aware of being on TV when it was on air but never watched. It was brilliant. Loved it. Will watch season two at some point.
I tried to force the writing with a short piece for a competition, but it didn’t work. Will need to apply myself more if I’m going to be able to make the resolution to enter at least one competition a month.
I have however written more of the romance and come up with the follow up to Solutions. Solutions by the way is a crime novel based in Merthyr Tydfil. It’s all arisen out of my annoyance with the dictatorial nonsense from the HR department over this new job. Also on the weekend I took a walk up a mountain to do some cache maintenance and spotted a great location for the first dead body to be found. So while it wasn’t a very productive week it wasn’t the utter washout it felt like.
Oh one thing more. This blog. I’m finding this really useful. It doesn’t get read but it’s a bit like therapy. I get to air my views, focus on the positives and practice writing. Great mix. So to anyone who does ever bother to read it – thank you.
