Well, this absence had been longer that I’d planned, but I’m glad to say I’m back on the writing wagon now, and it feels sooo good to say that!
The reason? Open University. I’ve been studying for an open degree for the past few years ( a combination of IT and Physics), and aside from the four year break I took for the birth of my twins, it’s been going pretty well.
Anyway, the end of the road is in site now, I’m on level 3 TMA’s (tutor marked assignments – basically the final year of uni) and this last module in particular has been a particular drain. I’ve been head down for two weeks, putting together the mother of all TMA’s it seems, ready for a deadline date of the 9th September. I completed the last question this morning and I can’t begin to describe the relief I’m feeling (maybe I should, I do make claims to be a wannabe writer after all!) at this moment.
Finally, after completing the last question, I then rattled out 700 words of my WIP, which is the first time I’ve touched it since I started the TMA with venom just after my last post on the 22nd August.
So, I’m glad to say I’m back, I’m writing, and hopefully I’m on track to complete this draft by the end of September.
Now, time to catch up on everyone else’s blogs 🙂
