I've made better progress this month than last and I am up to scene 9. That brings it up to about 13% complete for the first draft.
Sometimes it just seems impossible to sit down and just write when I have a full time job to got to and a family to care for.
I will try and write something with pen and paper whilst I cook Sunday dinner.
Right, better get to it.
Submitted my short story entry to the Bridport Prize with just a day left to go before closing. That was cutting it a bit fine.
If it doesn't make the shortlist I'll refine it a bit more and publish on kindle myself. That will be a true test of my writing.
So now I need to get back to writing my novel. I've neglected it for a few weeks. Will feel great to immerse myself in it's story again.
I've had a great couple of days.
I've written over 1000 more words of my novel and I've got my short story idea sorted.
My flash fiction piece just needs a final edit before submitting. Fingers crossed it gets shortlisted.
I've got a whole 11 days off work from Friday, hope to get lots of writing done then.

So much for trying to finish scene 5.
I can't even start it. No ideas are presenting at all.
It is going to be a long day
I just need to get past this hurdle and it will be flowing again nicely.
I've still not finished scene 5. I really need to get on with it. It's a bit ambitious of me but I'm also hoping to finish scene 6 as well by Monday evening.
I'm also trying to start a short story idea for a writing competition. I've got an idea in mind but can't seem to actually start writing the thing. The closing date is the end of June though, still time.
I've finished the first draft of my entry to the flash fiction category of the same competition. I will get that polished within a week and send it off. I wouldn't mind being a runner up at least, fingers crossed.
Let's see how productive today is going to be.
