Another ‘On’ Day

Have I mentioned recently how much I love where I live? It is days like today that remind me of it: when the sun shines unexpectedly, warm as summer should be; when, feeling restless in my office, I can escape to the sea by walking down the street. How fortunate I am that ‘work’ can mean walking along the cliff and the seaside, letting one part of the brain stew over what to write next while the other glories in the blue of the sea that sparkles with diamonds.

Today was another good day. If last week was an ‘off’ week then it looks like this week is ‘on’, so far! I wrote nearly 5000 words today, 2300 for my thesis and 2300 for my novel. I just need another day and a half of ‘on’ days and then I can rest for the weekend.

A while ago Ros called up the stairs, saying, ‘O Writing One, the last piece of cake is yours!’ So I am going to go reward myself with cake.

WORD COUNT: 47,775

    I was just looking through photos from my trip to Scotland the other day and thinking about how nice it would be to escape from the city for just a few hours into peace and solitude and Scotland.

    I wish we could teleport places. Maybe when you hit 50,000 words you can start working on inventing that? 😉

    Miss you ❤

    Been reading, just have nothing to reply. And you know me- that must mean I’m exhausted because I love to share my thoughts!
