Writing Update

Brief Candle – Writing Update 7th February 2021

A short one this week: aquick explanation of why I have been away and what is coming up this week.

Work Life Imbalance

In January I started a new job. The job is amazing and I love it. There is something that comes with change and that is the adjusting to a new routine. This is something that I have not yet managed to get completely right but, I think that it is headed in the right direction.

It is true that I have had to cut back somewhat on my writing and narration, planning be damned sometimes. It has just been an exceedingly busy few weeks and I have needed to get my head round the new environment in a COVID-19 lockdown world. I.e., no one there I can just ask how to do something or who is the right person to ask in the case of such and such.

I supposed that is it really. I know, not much to talk about but there will be (this week):

  • A new writing tips article
  • A new writing tips video (based on the article)
  • A new narration
  • A new idea for a short story chain that I am playing around with

I thank you for your patience.

As ever.

Warm Regards,

An English teacher by trade, an author at heart, it only took a global pandemic for me to start writing my first novel. Along the way, I found a love for creating shorter fiction which I share on this site along with some updates and (hopefully) useful writing tips.

I hope you have a... pleasant time reading.
