Writing away every day

Are you joining the Every Day in May challenge? I have decided to get back into my novel – every day of this month. I had a good start today as I got up at 5.30am ready to roll. Me, a cup of tea, the heater and my laptop. Perfect. Didn’t write a lot, but wrote soemthing so here’s to getting creative (and going to bed early) in May!
everyday_miniDay One: 500 dodgey words. Read over first four chapters. Spent a lot of time working out what music I needed to be listening to. Decided I like my book well enough to get back into it. I consider this to be a successful morning.

    Exciting prospect (a little daunting.)

    Mine is something creative every day. Blogging doesn’t count. (Unless it’s an emergency situation, like yesterday when I forgot all about it…)

    Working, parenting, creating and writing… the only way I ever do ANYTHING these days if it starts with a challenge or ends with a deadline. I’m a couple of days behind, but I’m going to try and write 1000 words tonight and catch up.
