Every adventure requires a first step.

January was a bit of a damp squib. I made grand plans with the best of intentions but found myself giving up after just a few days. I feel this Lockdown hitting harder. Although, not much has changed for me. I get up every day and I go to work. I come home and find myself sinking into the couch for the evening. The nights are dark and cold. I long for the days when we can finally see the people we miss the most.

The hurrier I go, the behinder I get

The White Rabbit – Lewis Carroll

In terms of writing, I haven’t done much. I have a few characters volleying for my attention, wishing to be developed into beings with full personalities. Sadly, for them, they will have to wait a little longer as I am working on a short story. Given time, it may develop into a larger story but as of now, it remains something smaller. I’m trying to encourage my mind back into writing. I haven’t made any concrete plans for February as its my birthday in the middle of the month. And its a big one. The day has been marching ever forwards, looming large in front of me. Perhaps next year I will be able to have my celebratory party. Can you guess the theme?

No wonder you’re late. Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.

Mad Hatter – Lewis Carroll

The one thing I managed to achieve during January was reading. I love to read. Every writer does. I decided that this year I would try to read more books. As with most readers, I collect books and never get around to actually reading them. I plan to change that this year. So far, its working. Over the course of January I managed to read five books. Three of which were by the lovely Saffron Amatti. If you like stories about murder mysteries involving ghosts, then you’ll love her books. At present, I am reading an ARC copy of Firebrand by Brandi Gann. I’m really enjoying it so far.

If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will get you there.

If you tune in to my post on https://thescribblerscircle.wordpress.com/ two weeks from now, I may just tell you how my birthday went and how I got on with my short story.

Take care my lovelies.

  1. Getting on track with your reading goals does feel great. I love to read, but progress has slowed somewhat. Then I decided that in January that I’ll dedicate more time to it, and I’ve managed to double the amount of books I read. Thanks for sharing, Betty!
