It started off well. Last Saturday I went to the library, got the Writers and Artists Yearbook, and wrote down the websites of all the magazines that I might possibly send a story to. If I use the websites, I can have a look at the magazine before I send my story, to see if my style suits and I can email my work to them.
Then I came home and wrote some pretty good stuff.
Then it all just sort of trailed off. Maybe the cold I had, maybe the weather, maybe the way my obsession with Doctor Who really peaked, or I just discovered and got obsessed with Glee. Maybe my biorhythms were out of wack – I have no idea. I just sort of collapsed on the sofa and stayed there.
So – I’m writing this week off. Put it down to a total break. Maybe I can say I was recuperating, or learning something from other’s good writing (Glee and Doctor Who are incredibly well written).
Or just admit I had a lazy week, and really enjoyed it.
Next week, I’ll be able to tell you what a very busy, productive week I’ve had. I hope.
