|Happy New Year|
The town where my mum-in-law lives was flooded too, but fortunately she was further away so stayed dry. The hotel we sometimes stay at was flooded and will be closed for a few months...
With the fast approaching new year I'm eager to get back to writing, but it won't be until next week when family members are back at work, or college, before I'll have enough quiet.
Besides working on my 2nd draft, I've also promised Patsy Collins that I will submit a short story to a woman's magazine.
I did write a story for a competition at the writers' club a few years ago, and intended to revise it to send off to Woman's Weekly- as it would fit their style, but as I've been concentrating on my longer works it never got done. So that will be on my agenda this year.
So to my 2015 word count total: 28,795. There's probably another 2,000 words from various pieces that I've written for the writers' club quarterly magazine, which I didn't include in my total, and must do in 2016.
(In 2014 I managed 26,043 words, excluding my blog posts.)
I need to improve on that total in 2016, and get more work sent out.
At least the word count continues to be going in the right direction-up. I need to get more organised and prioritise more.
Well that's it, my last blog post for 2015. I'll be back to normal routine next week.
Happy New Year.
