It’s been quite a while since I sat down to do any writing, or even wrote something on this blog. Lately I’ve been focused on my studies and trying to get my Cert IV in Fitness completed, so I put all my creative outlets to the side.
But now that I’m on holidays I’ve been taking a bit of a break and been reading some random books I borrowed from the library. And the itch to write is coming back strong.
I suppose it couldn’t hurt to put my studies to the side for a little bit longer. I’d better start making some coffee.
After staring at my screen last night and writing nothing I decided to give up and go to sleep instead.
Wonderfully it seems that my brain kept thinking about it overnight and now the words are flowing easily.
Sometimes taking a break can be the most productive path forward.
Between work and study I have had little energy for writing lately. I am planning/writing what should be my next major story, the first book of the series is currently name The House of Broken. The plan for today is to edit the next episode of Cats and Cauldrons though I think I require more coffee before I start.
Also I have written a new short story as part of the writing challenge I run with my students so once I have given it a quick edit I will post it up.
For now I shall make a coffee in the biggest mug I have and settle in to edit Cats and Cauldron: What is Written. And if that goes well I may write some more on The House of Broken, but more likely I will play some Tomb Raider.
It took a little bit longer that I had planned but I finished writing the short horror story featuring my dog Izzy. It is based around some of my dog’s odd behaviour.

I feel that I could work more on this story later and maybe add some more background to it. But it took longer to write then I had planned so I need to get back to editing my latest Cats and Cauldrons story.
I have also been making notes for a new 3 part novel I hope to start in the next few months.
And stay tuned for some big new about Coffee, Cats and An Act of Murder coming in the next few days.
Wow I have been busy, probably need to take a nap.
So I have been on holidays for the last few weeks and still have another week until I start back at work. You would think in that time that I would have been hugely productive and made some progress towards publishing Coffee, Cats and An Act of Murder, but no.
I have been writing though. I have been polishing 2 short stories that I am going to enter into a competition, which is pretty exciting. This is my first time entering a writing comp.
I have also been working on and just completed another short tale in the Cats and Cauldrons series. Yay!
Overall, I have been productive and writing but maybe not so focused on some of the writing I should be doing. I still have a week of holidays left; maybe I can make a sudden publishing break through.
