Round 4 and oops

Well, I didn’t do very well with ScriptFrenzy. After my initial mad bank holiday writing dash everything went quiet. Work and life and getting ill got in the way. Going to keep working on the Script anyway, then turn it back into a novel after. I am reducing my hours at work over the summer so hopefully that will give me both the creative head space plus the actual time to do a bit more writing.
My Round 4 poem is submitted (did rubbish with round 3 one). Part way through a story so not sure if that will get done by tonight.

Not on the topic of writing. I scratched my new car this week. Sniff. Gutted and very angry with myself. Looking at a few hundred to fix that. Also have bronchitis for the bank holiday weekend so feeling a bit sorry for myself. But, on the plus side, 3 day week next week and going to see Wendy Cope read her poetry on Monday.

Round 3

What a week!
Work has been manic this week so I didn’t manage to get my Whittaker fiction entry written. I’d started something but didn’t want to get another hideous score by not having time to edit properly. I’ll get a 0 but that’s ok.
I had already written and submitted the poem so fingers crossed for that one.
Need to consider if I’m going to submit my Dorrie’s poem for publication. Not had any feedback on it though. Ah well, you’ve got to be brave sometime.
Not done anymore on the script but will try and do some more later.
May til August I’m dropping one day at work so hoping that I will achieve lots more with my writing.

Round 2 results

Well the round 2 Whittaker results are out and my poem did OK. Same marks as last time at least and midway on the scoreboard. Just got judge’s comment and they are pretty spot on, will have to reconsider the end.
Fiction not so good, barely scraped half marks and I’m right at the bottom of the scoreboard. I will suck it up and post it for comment, after I get the judges comments, who knows maybe it just needed to be longer!!!
But, I enjoyed writing both and I think my head is just not up to intricate story plotting at the moment.
No more pages on my Script, have a nasty chest infection so not felt up to much. I did do a bit of sorting through receipts and journals today so feel more cleansed. Will try and tackle some more of my script and my round 3 story over the weekend, just wonder if I’ll go higher or lower next round.
