New Year Resolution
I thought that each week I would add a photo of the week. Hence, the photo to the left. It was either this wild, magical tree or a steaming pile of horse dung. I think I made the right choice. It was taken on New Year's Day at Clifton Country Park. Please feel free to write a story about said tree. I may do so too. Eventually.
On the writing front I've been working on a commissioned novella 'This Foolish & Harmful Delight' and have completed 4361 words this week (up to Saturday). I'm rather foolishly delighted to be writing again. I appear to be back on track. Heck, I may even catch up with reading everyone's blogs soon. It's like a mini-miracle. I've also been reading through and editing the first 10,000 words of my novel 'Last Seen Drowning' before I move on to re-writing the next 50,000ish words.
I've also decided to walk 70,000 steps a week (averaging 10,000 a day - ooh, look I can do maths). Imagine my delight when I discovered that a bunch of people were doing the 'Million Steps Challenge'. We have a blog and everything. So far this week (1st to 5th Jan) I've walked 62,136 steps (easily within my 10,000 steps a day by 12,136 - ooh, more maths). I'm aiming for three and a half million steps by year end.
And that is that, for now...
