Ok, so it’s not officially day one as my son is not yet back at school, but he is at his Grandma’s so I’ve had a day to myself.
I stupidly signed up for sporting events most weekends in September when I got confirmation of my sabbatical (over excitement?), so I needed to do a big pool swim (boring -prefer the sea but husband at work so no paddle board support), then run later. I am doing a 5k swim round a Buttermere in the lake District sandwiched between a sprint and an Olympic triathlon. Can’t wait for the swim- we got engaged at Buttermere and it’s one of my favourite places, but I bit off a bit too much signing up for that before another Olympic distance triathlon (I did London triathlon in July and knackered my hamstrings).
So with all that I didn’t think I’d achieve much writing wise, so I am pleased with myself 😀. I edited the first 7000 words of novel one for ABSOLUTELY the last time, and set up this blog. I figure this year is also a good opportunity to familiarise myself with social media and blogging as I understand this is an essential part of being an author these days and I am a total dinosaur. I even got a domain!!! Now I just have to work out what to do with it…..more about that and novel one to follow
