Writing Progress and Decisions and Pinterest Again

Day 114: October 30, 2020

I had a good bash at writing this morning, getting over 700 words down before having to start the day.

When I started, I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to write but once I got going, the words just seemed to flow out which was great.

I also did some research on the property I’d feature in my story including choosing a rather lovely floor for part of it! Although I can “see” physical locations of the book in my head, it is also useful to have actual photos that I can refer to.

I’ve also been super prepared and got tomorrow’s Halloween writing prompt written and scheduled as well as sending the necessary bits and pieces to my assistant. I also followed that up by scheduling tomorrow’s journal post so there’s nothing else to do tomorrow. All that before 11am!

I’ve created and posted three pins today in the hope of trying to get some traction back on Pinterest as that has fallen right away. The last few pins I’ve posted have got next to nothing in terms of impressions. I recreated the video pin I did a few days ago – kept the text the same but changed the image and colours etc. I also posted today’s journal digest and also a static pin to the freebie. We shall see if that makes any difference to anything – doesn’t seem to so far but fingers crossed it changes.

I also had a discussion with my eldest two children about a name for a location in the book. After a couple of stupid suggestions, we did manage to get a great name, which is really helpful and something else I can tick off the list of things to think about.

I spent quite a bit of quiet time reading “The Confession” though I am not totally sure I am enjoying it. I can’t put my finger on why exactly. It’s not the content, more the fact I can’t warm to one of the characters I think. Though that’s my failing, not the author’s as the writing is great. I’m close to halfway through it now and will definitely finish it. I will let you know how I get on.
