Tips on carrying your work A to B constantly?
Don’t ask me – that was a question.
The Writing Week then…
Starting to think about how I want to change Hacked Off so I took advantage of the dry bright weather and got outside as much as possible so I could ‘sort of’ think about it while I was working with my horses. I have a few ideas and know roughly what I want but within them there are choices to make about some of the characters and their roles – dog walking has now become an opportunity to talk to the imaginary actors playing the characters as we sit around an imaginary big table and talk about what I want them to do for me – I don’t have close neighbours so I can actually talk out loud – which is a bad habit to get into but I could drink and smoke my way though writing and I don’t do either of those so…
Having ditched Platform U last week due to their appalling automated subscription issues I awaited day 10 extermination with total disinterest – only to find an email telling me it was ‘all a mistake’ and as I am an ‘active and involved’ member my membership goes on – this made me flaming mad as to me it says – ‘drat if you were a quite sort we might have either got rid of you or got more money out of you’ – of course I am not paranoid.:)
I had noticed that my thread there about the mistake I made with Blue Host has not exactly been taken down but can only be got at through my profile which I reckon is the same thing – that annoyed me too as it was fair comment and other people might make the same mistake and it was expensive. Now I have the dilemma of sticking around disgruntled or putting up and shutting up with something I pay for, is useful but mostly operates in a way that I find uncomfortable. Like the horse with the wrinkle under the saddle I expect I will explode bucking from time to time – the trick if I stay will be to keep it fair just and reasonable – and useful to any one else inclined to not see the wood for the trees on this journey. Either way it is a distraction I don’t need. So they get one more month/sub payment and then I will reassess – by then I hope husband will be back at work and my normal working hours will be resumed.
Reading This Week?
Lindsey Davies – Falco series again for the umpteenth time.
Yes – in the impending cancellation of PU I scouted writing Podcasts etc and found a fair few – my Itunes thing is now packed with them – cannot list them here or say if they are useful – I was looking for UK ones for a change – and there were some – I just haven’t sat at desk long enough to listen and comment but it seems a vibrant selection packed with view points of all kinds.
