Mini Introduction

I saw this somewhere and decided to steal it. Because apparently I’m a thief?

1. What I write: Romance all the way! Fantasy Romance, and Historical Romance (Regency). Sometimes I try something different, and I have a contemporary novella.

2. My go-to genre to read/write: Romance in multiple sub-genres, but I also enjoy a good horror or thriller. And some general fiction?

3. Favorite characters: All of them! I try to vary the type I write. My favourites are probably the broody and sarcastic ones though.

4. Happily ever after ending: In my writing, always. But I generally prefer it in most of what I read. There’s enough gloominess in the real world.

5. Plotter or pantser: I’m a plantser? Probably more of a pantser than plotter though.

6. Writing tools: I write mainly in Scrivener these days. Love it!

7. What readers can expect from my stories: Humour, sparks flying and a happily ever after (eventually).

8. Publishing goals: Most likely self-publishing on Amazon. Hopefully, the first book will come out this year!

9. Fave authors: Julia Quinn, Teresa Medeiros, Lisa Kleypas, Torey Hayden, Dean Koontz, Stephen King

10. Writing personality: Not quite disciplined enough… Organised chaos, basically. Like the rest of my life.

My Week in Bullet Points (w17)

A summary of what I’ve been up to in the last week, in bullet points. Because, why not?

What I’ve done this past week:

  • Not slept. The tiny tyrant has been poorly, so most evenings/nights have been spent trying to make her sleep. And then either being kicked in the back or used as a human comfort blanket.
  • Dropped the tiny tyrant off for settling in sessions at daycare. We managed two before she became poorly. Both times she went straight in, barely saying goodbye, so that’s good… I think? First time she had to be picked up a bit early, second went all right. Though I’m told she doesn’t share with the other children. I’m not surprised, we’ve basically spent a third of her life in lockdown and she’s had every single toy to herself.
  • Worried about hitting my word count goals since I got little to no time writing.
  • Dreamed about winning the lottery and how I would decorate my house. (As you do when you can’t sleep and are just lying there staring at the ceiling.)
  • Picked up my new glasses. Finally moved away from purple frames to something else. (Had purple for like 6 years, it was getting boring.)
  • Stared at the messy chaos that’s supposedly my home and decided it can wait for another day.
  • Finished writing a novella. I started it on a whim, but I quite like it and I think I might extend it slightly into a shortish novel. When I have time. So… in 2035?

My Week in Bullet Points (w15)

I wanted to start a new weekly post on the blog where I do a sort of summary of what I’ve been up to during the week. It (obviously) won’t be a complete record since I don’t want to bore you (too much)!

So, this past week I have:

  • Been to the hospital optometrist with my tiny tyrant to confirm that yes, she does need glasses. If someone can explain to me how to convince a just-turned-three-year-old that she needs to wear glasses, please get in touch. (She’s adamant that she does not want to wear glasses. I am currently considering bribes. It seems reasonable, right?)
  • Wondering why the laundry mountain never diminishes, no matter how many loads of laundry I do.
  • Written less words than I would have liked, but I did write some, so… Win?
  • Met my friends and their kids (tiny tyrant’s friends) and had a whinge and a cup of tea. It was lovely. I highly recommend a whinge with friends now and then. It was all outside in a garden due to current restrictions (pandemic and all that) and sadly cut short due to rain, but hey! I saw other people that don’t live with me. I count that as a win these days.
  • Stared at a blank page and tried to remember what I was going to write. Again.
  • Amused myself by starting a chapter with the sentence: “I know it looks big, but I promise it won’t hurt.”
  • Been to the optician to choose new glasses. It was time. Literally. My old ones are falling apart by now and I have to use my nail to tighten the tiny tiny screw at least twice a day.
  • Forgotten to make several phone calls. Well, there’s another week coming.
  • Started watching Kim’s Convenience (only X number of years after everyone else, but it’s on Netflix, so…)
