With restrictions easing and the days and weeks racing past at break-neck speed, I find myself struggling to keep up with everyone and everything that is going on around me. Its been a crazy year to say the least. I keep looking forward to the day my body and mind get back into the rhythm of the busy lifestyle that is modern life. Surely I can’t be the only one feeling like this? On the plus side, Autumn is here!

The days are getting shorter, and the nights longer. There is a pleasant chill to the morning that brings the promise of a warmer afternoon. The sun-kissed trees are beginning to shed their leaves. Autumn is arguably the most beautiful season. The one I look forward to every year. When I can wrap up in thick jumpers and light all the candles. I would also argue that it is the best season for writing. Autumn is the perfect excuse to sit down with a notepad or computer – and copious amounts of caffeine – at your desk and write. And with NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) fast approaching, I find myself enthusiastically looking forward to the opportunity to hole up in my writing room at my beautiful desk and whittle away the hours. Are you participating in NaNoWriMo this year? Let me know!

Over the past week I have started to work through the Writer’s HQ Self Write-solation exercises in an effort to bring my daily word counts back up. I’m particularly excited about these exercises because I’m not just gaining a word count for that day, I’m also collecting a list of future ideas and starting points. Its always handy to have a backlist of prompts for days when your mind just doesn’t want to focus on your W.I.P. When I choose a prompt to work on, I generally find myself subconsciously picking one that I can work into my current project.

Finishing on a cheerful note, today marks the start of my 365 day count down to my wedding. To say I am ecstatic would be an understatement. There is, however, part of me that remains cautious with all the new restrictions put in place. I am equally optimistic and cautious. My O.H and I laid out a list of everyone invited and divvied them up into groups of ten in order to be best prepared no matter the restrictions. Some may say we are being overly cautious. Prepare for the worst, and hope for the best. I think it is better to be prepared now, rather than have the added stress farther down the line. Over the past fortnight, I have purchased my dress, sent out our save the dates and organised our guestlist. I am now signing off to spend time with my wife-to-be, celebrating our first last day as a Miss.

I hope you all have a wonderful day. Stay kind. Georgie x
