Of course, today I'm suffering - having put on 4 llbs over the weekend. My fault entirely. I come off my diet and instead of being sensible I go totally mad. But it was fun. We also watched my all time fav film "Love Actually" late on Saturday night. You know, I'd forgotten what a masterpiece it is. And the others enjoyed it too - two of them han't seen it before - now, how weird is that?????
Update on my book....... there is no update...... still waiting.........

Procrastination Rules OK
So what have I done today????????? Nothing. Nada. Zilch........ apart from sit at the pc and surf the net and check the loops I'm on every ten minutes or so. Why? F$@# knows. Other than I'm genetically predisposed to procrastinating on a grand scale. La Grande Procrastination - works well for a title, don't you think?????

The Real World
So, then what? Does one carry on writing regardless or does the writing take a nose dive? At the moment I'm in this situation. My energies are taken up with sorting out problems, not of our making, and it's hard to think of little else. And although I'm managing to write it's a bit like pushing porridge uphill. Lucky my revisions are out the way and I'm working on my new ms - another young adult.
Btw, still no news on my current YA, which is with a few publishers. Hoping to have news very soon!!!!

The Write Way
That cannot be, I want to shout. YOU are in charge. YOUR fingers are on the keyboard. If characters do things that surprise you, it's really new, previously unconsidered, ideas coming to the fore. It's all about being flexible with your thinking. I change direction all the time when I write. But that's because ideas pop into my head. I also run through conversations in my head between characters. But it's MY head and MY thoughts, I'm just playing through a scenario, to see if it works.
Now I'm proably going to alienate my best buddies, the witches, for this post. Because none of them share this view. So apologies in advance hahahaha. I also needed something to post - to test Christina who swears she won't miss another of my posts!!!!
