Wow, January is almost over.
This month was so hectic with so many things happening. Sorry for me being MIA, things just got a bit too busy than I thought it would be. Planning to post more after the weekend ❤
I searched a lot for a new writing desk and finally I found the perfect one, It’s all in boxes right now waiting to be built. I wanted my own space, a place that is not the living room or the kitchen, just my own writing place. It will be in my spare room where we have our closets and laundry, but there is enough space to fit a great writing desk.
Still looking for a good chair and I hope to buy one soon.
I also bought a cute little lamp as well, can’t wait to organize my desk ❤
I hope that hubby will build the table this weekend and I will post a few pictures on my Instagram and maybe even here.
Sugar free January
My sugar free month is going great, I didn’t have any sugar at all this month. I can’t say it was easy… It wasn’t! I will not do that in February, lol, but I will eat real food (no junk) even if it contains sugar in it. I will not eat sweets at all, but food like smoked salmon (I miss it, so much) I will eat even if it has sugar in it.
My only advice to anyone who thinks of trying to lower their sweet intake, is to do it slowly and drink lots of water or green tea, it helps a lot.
I was planning to edit one of my books I have already finished to write The Adventures Of Biloby The Wizard
The editing is not going well, so far. I guess I can’t do two things at the same time. I will try to set time at weekends for the editing, but I haven’t worked on a plan for that, yet.
My writing is going good, but not as good as I wanted it to be at this stage. I am planning to push harder (much harder) on February. My average was about 5K (5,000 words) a day at the beginning of the month, but as the month progressed, my average went downhill. Now I write about 3K a day.
My plan for February is to push as hard as I can. I know I can do better with my writing.
So far I write mostly in one sitting and sometimes maybe two for about 4-5 hours total. But now I plan to write in one sitting at least 5K for 4 hours, take a small break and sit for another 2 hours (at least). I am planning to be less in social media and will close my phone more (it helps a lot).
Will continue to update you all as I go on 🙂
Two most important things I’ve learned this month about my writing
- My difficulty this month was time, I did learn how to put my time to better use and set a huge block of time for my writing. It still needs a bit of tweaking though, but that’s ok. I will learn how to balance home with writing, I just need a bit more practice 😀
- I’ve learned to put my writing first. It’s a work in progress, but I am doing much better at taking time for myself.
That is all for now, a new Book Update will be on the weekend.
Have a great weekend full of relaxation and creativity ❤
Thank you so much for reading ❤
