Week 2 Round-up – Reading, Writing, Having Fun

Week Two RoundupIn 2013 one of the things that really helped me to stay productive and accountable was when I wrote up my weekly round up posts. This was a great way to look at what I had achieved for the week.

I will be going back to these types of posts to see if I can get back to that wonderfully fulfilling work balance.

So Week Two of 2014 is complete and this is a round up of what I got done.

What I Got Done

I managed to finish reading my first book of the year. It was a cheesy trashy novel but it was fun, quick and easy to read. It was called Some Women Dance by Helene Mansfield. This type of book would come in the same sort of category as Jackie Collins novels but not as raunchy. I had this book for years, gathering dust in a cupboard so it was time to get it read.

When I went to find the link on Amazon, I had to laugh. The cover of the book I have does not look like this! My one has dancer’s legs in 1980s legwarmers, like Fame or something. A lot more innocent looking. This other cover is a lot more like Jackie Collin’s older book covers :)

Anyway, I have moved onto my next book, a detective story by JD Robb.

I Wrote 15 micro-posts for Bubblews
I wrote 3 short stories
I wrote two blog posts

Writing Micro-posts at Bubblews
The micro-posts are great because I can write about things that do not really have anywhere else to go. They are short snippets, around 100 words with the bonus being that they make a little cash when people view, like or comment on those posts.

Here are a few things I published last week:

Writing Short Stories
I hope to create short stories and put them together to create my next book. These stories are about 1,000 words each. This is a great way to practice my writing skills without the pressure of trying to sustain a storyline consisting of 20,000 words +. This is something that I will be working towards though.

It would be great if I could get a book out by the end of the month. I will try my best.

Writing Blog Posts
The two blog posts include this one and one that is for my travel blog. I just need to fish out some photos to go along with it then I will publish it. Hopefully by the end of this week.

That’s what I got done over the last 7 days. I am looking forward to doing more of the same this week, as well as producing a video too :)
