Today I added to the story – or novel as it’s aiming to be. After finishing chapter 5 (yay) the word count is just over 11,000. Now for a writer, this is nothing, but for me who’s got a bit stuck lately, this is monumental. This is me getting back into it, and I have a few more characters now as well.
Are you writing and got stuck? How’s it going, and what helps you get back in the story? I knit when not writing, and making a throw over blanket for Sophie.
Remember, we have to love the characters and their journey ourselves because if we don’t how can we expect anyone else to care about them?
The bizzie lizzies are to remind you that spring isn’t far away.
Now off to read through the first 5 chapters and add some action and spice to keep it going through chapter 6.
Every time I pass another 10,000 words I’ll blog about it and soon there might be a story for you to enjoy. The two pound coin is to remind us of the industrial revolution and the beginning of the twentieth century an era during which my story is set.
The writing fairy says, “It’s okay to have some thinking time, then when you get back to it, the words will flow and you’ll have a masterpiece on your hands.

Good to read your update, Suzy. Well done on getting back to writing – it all adds up. I’ve started the year fairly well with creativity – just have to keep the momentum going now!
I’ve written precisely nothing fictional so far this year. My two current WIPs are both non-fiction. I must find time to write something fanciful soon.
