Writing Targets and Mammograms!

So the last couple of weeks have been tough for writing because of time out, what with mini-breaks in Barcelona and this week I had a hospital appointment at the breast clinic for a mammogram, so Monday and Tuesday I was not in the mood for writing. Luckily for me it turned out to be nothing more than a hormone irregularity, but it really made me feel for women who have worse luck with their diagnoses. The appointment itself was amazing, the nurses were kind and gentle, the doctors and even the Consultant were all brilliant and made the experience as reassuring as possible. I know I've said this before but we need to keep our NHS. They are amazing!

With that behind me I did my best to get back into my 2000 word a day daily writing target and yesterday I was so engrossed I even wrote after the school run and managed 3000 words! Today I've just done another 2000 so I'm finishing the week on a grand total of 33,366!

I should be halfway (if it wasn't for my week off writing... but I'm almost there!)

Oh and for any Instagram fans out there, I have just joined... I know I'm late to the party, but still I'm there now and trying to get the hang of it! https://instagram.com/emmaMwriter/

Have a great weekend!

Refreshed, Energised and Back at It!

So last week I was too busy to write. We had an amazing weekend in Barcelona. It has now beaten Paris to my City Break top spot! I love Paris, it's beautiful and the food is to die for, but lets face it Barcelona also has great food, its architecture is stunning, pretty much everywhere you walk, but especially in the Gothic Quarter and along the Passeig De Gracia AND it has a beach/marina! In Paris you can't sit by the ocean in a restaurant drinking Sangria!

We arrived home Monday evening and Tuesday was a right-off organising stuff, but I am happy to report that the last three days I have got stuck in and have hit my 2000 word target every day! WitchWar is now up to Chapter 9!
