Going Against Myself Yet Again

Day 201: January 25, 2021

I had a bit of the Monday morning blues this morning but can’t really put my finger on why. I would like to spend the day sat at my desk sorting out either my platform (Pinterest especially) or writing but obviously I need to get on with the day job first.

I seemed to have a lot of day job work accumulate over the weekend, so definitely had a very busy morning trying to juggle that with ensuring home schooling was going ahead as it should be.

I did get a few catch up pins onto Pinterest and I got today’s planning post shared across social media, so that was at least a good start.

Later in the day I wrote a review of the latest book I had finished reading, as I always try to get those done when I finish and before I start another so I don’t forget anything.

I am always slightly ahead of what I post on social that I am reading and sometimes a bit too ahead to know where to stop at the end of one month’s review post. As it’s almost the end of the month, I know what books will be sharing this week as my “am reading” so I know I need to start my February reviews post now. I therefore got that set up including image etc. and did my first review on there.

I was asked today how the site was going and realise (though I knew already) that I have no real direction. I wanted to ‘get out there’ before I had a published book, so I had a bit of a platform to ‘sell’ it to and whilst I know I am pushing out good content in the interim, I don’t have any real measures of how it’s going – which goes against what I say in my posts. I need to give it more thought and try to work out what I want the site to do. I do need to carve out some time for this though!

What I did carve some time out for was to sit down and write! I did only get 230 words done but it filled in a small chunk of story I realised I had left out and which needed to be added. I didn’t have too much trouble finding the right place to slot it in either so I was able to tick that ‘to-do’ off my list fairly easily.

I didn’t manage to get any more done as I was feeling extremely tired and I kept getting interrupted by messages so in the end, I called it a night and just went to bed.
