Write on!

27 Jul

writingWow, so it’s only 4;30 p.m. but I’ve managed to have a productive day so far (it isn’t over yet).  I made my way to a semi-tough workout at the gym this morning. Definitely sweated but thought it would be harder than it was, although I can already feel my limbs starting to hurt (Yoga is coming later this evening!).

I managed to write my review of Fiddler on the Roof starring the indomitable Chaim Topol, scrounge around looking for jobs (but found nothing today), and then sent in short stories to three separate writing competitions. This makes me excited. I also put together a submission folder so I can track these little gems. Actually, I spent time online looking for the perfect format and discovered the perfect free system at Luminary Writer’s Database. Bless their cotton socks. Now I feel organised!

The Writer’s Digest Short Short Story comp deadline is not till Dec 1, but I read somewhere that it’s better to get them in early. Makes sense, no? Mostly because you don’t want to be one of the 4, 763 stories the judges read in the last week, right? Rather have a memorable story that was sent in FOUR MONTHS EARLY.

So now I’m going to take a well-deserved tea break. I’ve been on the go since 6 a.m. Tonight is bruschetta night, with fresh delicious tomatoes from my garden. Can’t wait!

Left on my agenda today:

  • A short yoga workout
  • A walk with the dog
  • Some time to read (currently it’s “The Secret”)

Tomorrow’s agenda:

  • More job searching
  • Writing fiction
  • Reading through old fiction magazines for inspiration
  • A gym class (if my muscles haven’t seized up beyond recognition)
  • Pitching article ideas to well paid markets
  • Transcribing notes for my next article due on August 9, and hopefully making a dent in writing the 2,000 word piece.

Please hold me to this guys! How was your writing day today? Are you inspired??
