I can't wait to start reading. I already had a quick flick through the Writer's Book of Hope and there's some good stuff in there (stuff I'm sure I'll be regurgitating onto the blog over the next few weeks!)
Actually that book couldn't have come at a better time. I still haven't written a word. It's been 2 weeks and 2 days since I last wrote something - possibly the longest I've ever gone without writing since I got 'serious' about it in 2005. Not good. Not good at all. But it seems as though I'm not alone. Several other bloggers are going through a bit of a dry spell at the moment. Maybe it's the weird weather? Or the Rewriting blues? Who knows.
Still, I'm not going to beat myself up about it. Whenever I've felt a bit blocked before I've found that reading a lot can help spark up new ideas and enthusiasm.
In other news the final scores for Eurofiction have been released and, overall, I came 11th out of 56. That beats my ranking last year (14th) but, again, I just failed to get into the top 10 (by 1 point). Never mind, better luck next year. At least I got 10 new stories out of it. Stories I can hopefully sell.
I've got a fairly quiet weekend planned so I'm planning on putting my head down and getting some writing done, no matter what. Then, next weekend, I'm off on a writing course with Leigh and HelenMH (can't wait) and two weeks after that it's the Novel Racers meet up (yay!). Better get on with some actual writing then. No point calling myself a writer if I don't do any!
