A week or so in photos

Hey, I know I’ve not written in a while, but I’ve been so busy. I’ve no idea where the time is going! Today I was busy writing my first essay for my MA, its hard and though I’ve like got everything I need, the physical part of writing it has been my battle. I don’t get how I can write the first chapter of a novel in the space of maybe two hours or so, yet I can’t do a 2,000 word essay within 24 hours! So annoying. Anyway I only have 500 words left to do now and that is my task for tomorrow. So what else have I been up too? Well, I’ve a whole stack of photos to put up so let’s start there in the latest order:

Awesome ice cream, which I’ve been eating. Good job I got like 3 tubs of the stuff and no else in my family likes it!

I know its a bit blurry, but this squriall was in garden taking the nuts and then burying them in the lawn!

On Saturday, I went to my friend’s gig -she’s the lead singer- her band is called My Awakening and they were really good. They played my second fav style of music indie/punk kind and I got to hang around with her band afterwards too. They were playing in a bar called The Head of Steam, which is connected to Liverpool’s Lime Street train station. They play at lots of other venues in Liverpool too, so check them out on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/My-Awakening/150546721651572?ref=ts&sk=wall

Then on Thursday, I went to Manchester for the first day of the Xmas market. It was pretty good and I’m hoping to go back soon and take some more photos.

I got some new boots too! They are a size too small though, but they were just so nice I couldn’t send them back.

Then lastly, I’ve been getting into the xmas spirit. I tried out the new gingerbread latte at my uni’s Starbucks. I’ve to say though there was too much ginger dusting in there for me!

And Krispy Kreams are also on the case!

There was a xmas tree too, but I got to eat the snowman!

That’s basically what I’ve been up too since last time I wrote. I’m currently reading Margaret Atwood’s Negotiating With The Dead, A Writer on Writing. It’s an interesting book and it’s different from most of the other books I’ve read about writing. It does seem to be a bout how to write and publish though, its more of an insight into life as a writer. I am liking it, though some of the theories are going over my head. I finished Lady Oracle two days ago and surprised myself because I really liked it. I read it fast too, because I got that in to it hopefully that’ll help if I’ve to write an essay on it! I’ve got no idea what I’ll be reading next – I’ll keep you updated though!

I’ve also decided to stick with writing my latest novel, which started as a short story, but then appeared to be better suited to a novel format. It was workshopped yesterday and people liked it, so for now I’m going to carry on writing and see what happens. I redrafted a short story too last night, though it still doesn’t feel write. It’s difficult to swap between the different forms sometimes. People think you can write everything and that’s not true. Once you find a format that suits you, you tend to stick to it. Though you might experiment with other forms, you’ll mostly always go back to the most suitable.

So for the next few days, I’ll be doing writing and reading, but I’ll also be exploring the attic. The electrics have gone up stairs and the only way to get us out of the ‘dark ages’ is to go into the attic and fix the wires. So that’ll be fun, as well as cleaning my room…..
