Re: Recent deliveries of weather

When I signed up for your regular weather deliveries, I was assured that I would be provided with a good variety of whatever type of weather was currently in season. However, for the past two weeks we have had nothing but driving rain, high winds and overcast skies. This is like someone who supplies veg boxes giving the customer nothing but potatoes for week after week. It is not good enough!

If it weren't for the fact that you are a monopoly, I would even now be switching in order to receive my weather supply from another provider.

Yours, disgruntled

Writing progress -- Novel in 90

Collapse )

Words that Word doesn't know: n/a

novel_in_90 (Zanna and the God-King): 565 new words:

Zanna and the God-King
18,762/ 50,000 (28%)

As I said a couple of days ago, I've abandoned my NaNoWriMo attempt and have reined back my efforts to a more reasonable level. Instead of trying for 2000+ words daily, I will aim for a steady 750 words per day, which is the novel_in_90 target.

I caught up on the activities for the advanced creative writing class and produced 250 words for that. In the afternoon, I went out for a walk, despite the weather and this evening I managed a desultory 565 words on the novel.

Now I'm writing more slowly, I will actually have time to plan in a bit more detail, but my head is also full of other stuff, such as how to adapt a short story as a radio play and what to write for the tutorial activity. But it's all good practice and writing continues to be enjoyable, which is what really matters.
