I did it again: I went away on holiday for two weeks without writing a word of my book! My laptop stayed at home (I needed space in my case for all the tacky souvenirs!), but I did take a writing pad to scribble something of chapter 15; I didn’t, though! Now I’m back and I have to motivate myself into starting where I left off. That’s not easy when you have to go back to your day job, you have the holiday washing to do and the house to clean from top to bottom.
It’s a case of, ‘Oh, I’ll start tomorrow.’ Tomorrow never comes, though, does it?
One way of getting back into my writing is doing a mini edit. Although I haven’t finished Episode, I get to a point where I find it useful to look over what I’ve already written and this often motivates me to carry on and finish the book. I will finish it and get it published in 2017, though, and that will take me to ten years since I finished Goalden Girl!
