February Round Up

Another month gone by. The short, dark days are slowly getting longer and lighter and spring is just aroud the corner. Time for another monthly round up.

Writing

I have received feedback on my NaNoWriMo novel, which I will look at later in the year. I’m attending the Winchester Writers Festival during which I have two one to one appointments with agents and I am going to pitch my book to them then. They want to receive a synopsis and the first chapter in May so I need to get all that ready then.

When it comes to short stories, I have written another flash fiction piece which I have entered into the Mslexia flash fiction competition. I have also written a short story for another competition and am halfway through a short story for the Mslexia short story competition. So I have definitely not stopped writing.

My detailed outline for my novel which I plan to start writing this week is finished. I am very excited about it and hopefully the writing will go smoothly, although I usually find that when I have a good, detailed outline the writing comes easy.

Blog

I have kept up my regular posts on the blog. I have managed to keep doing Flash Fiction Friday even though it hasn’t always been easy to come up with a story. It has been another good prompt to keep me writing. I hope I can keep it up during March when I am writing my novel, but maybe I can schedule a few pieces whenever I need a break from my novel. I will need to be very organised next month!

Personal

I am moving house next month, so I have spent a lot of time this month de-clutering and packing (oh, and finding a house). As a consequence I have not written in my journal as much, which isn’t that good. Luckily I have been able to keep on top of my sexual rediscovery journey despite the every day stresses.

Looking forward

March is going to be very busy. I am moving house, I am starting my new novel and I want to enter at least one short story competition. I will need to really utilise my writing time in the morning and at my lunch hour. Not a moment can be wasted. This could be interesting…
