I finished the 8-week writing course called Start Writing Fiction today. I thoroughly enjoyed it and this is my final piece of writing for it:
My brother. Poor Mike. He’s special, you know? And you know what happens to special kids, especially ones in an all-boys school. I wish mam had been able to get us into a mixed school, then I could have protected him some, like in primary school.
Honestly, a piece of string should not be called underwear. Continue reading

Organization skills need to improve! I’ve been contemplating putting WordPress on my phone so that I can work on my posts when I’m not near the computer. However, at the same time, I enjoyed the break from all of the Internet ties when I go away for a few days. For the moment, the pros and cons balance each other out.
chapter 1 @ the betas
start chapter 2
Yeah, I am nowhere near finished chapter 1, every time I sit down to write, I get lost in the massive holes I have! Chapter 2 is a far distant light that is not getting any closer.

I finished Wells of Ascension! I am so delighted to have that tome of a book over with. I re-read The Eye of the World Robert Jordan. This time I highlighted any piece of writing that stood out to me, I then wrote all of these quotes out and put them into my S.B. to teach myself how to write.
We were walking through a book market and I saw something that jumped out at me, “this is about my city! And New York, but it starts off in my city.” I gushed about the book so much that my boyfriend bought it for me. Les Cendres D’Angela by Frank McCourt. I read it years ago. It was nice to have a bit of home when I was walking around a French market.
Yesterday, we bought Le Meilleur des Mondes by Aldous Huxley (A Brave New World). I have never read it before, and it is the next book on my to-read list after I finish The Great Hunt. Yes, I got hooked by The Wheel of Time. This time is different though because I am analyzing the writing throughout.
May’s reading goal: finish The Great Hunt, add quotes to S.B. and start Le Meilleur des Mondes.

I was doing great with the Twitter games until last weekend, 3 days of not been able to do it broke my rhythm. However, even with that setback, I gained quite a few followers and I’m happy with this month’s total.
May’s games: #authorconfession, #MythMAYhem.
April Folly might be back in June and WIP joy doesn’t have anything up yet. I would like to do more games but I stumbled across all these ones, so I have to keep plodding along hoping another game catches my foot.
Happy Sunday and enjoy the May bank holiday!
From last Friday (21st/04) to Monday (24th/04), I did not do any exercising. On Tuesday, I did a 30-minute abs workout, it was intense. Standing abs, lying down abs, and planks, 3 rounds of each section will stop I did 2/3 rounds of the planks, my abs were burning and I could not finish the workout. I am very happy with my effort.
