Inspiring Friends

Thanks to a friend inspiring me last week my word count of 1,604 doesn't seem so bad.

Writing Bubble

The word count is low but I will not let the self-doubt demon in this time. I had so much going on last week that time flew by and before I knew it it was the weekend. That's when illness hit the household and I spent the weekend caring for the sick. Luckily, so far, I'm bug free and I'm hoping it stays that way.

What I Read #4

This week's What I Read includes posts about writing and body image. There's also two poems that I loved.

Taking part in the What I'm Writing linky is a highlight in my week. I get to read lots of other writers advice, struggles and stories. Aimee Horton linked up a post and the title grabbed me. Five procrastination cliches and how to overcome them is a great list of tips and advice, it was the 'talking to' I needed.

Finding Me

Talking to a friend this morning inspired me to write 'Finding Me'

Being a mum is a hard job, the children need us constantly and sometimes, along the way, we lose ourselves. We forget to save time for us, to do the things we love. After a while we forget what we loved and don't know how to get it back. We give in to being mother, we assign ourselves that label, and we forget who we really are.

Increase Productivity - Writing in 30 minute Bursts

After last week's progress I didn't think I'd manage to type fast enough to get a higher word count. It turns out I was wrong because I have increased my productivity.

Increase Productivity = no more choppy waters.
No more choppy waters for Morgan. :)

In my 30 minute bursts last week I wrote 1,841 words altogether. This week, not including yesterday, I wrote 2,406. And that's over three days.

My steps are low this week, I went for a run on Wednesday (on the treadmill) and it wiped me out, I was so tired, but felt great. No walking Thursday or Friday and I spent Saturday watching TV and lounging.
