Every accomplishment starts with a decision to try– unknown
In amongst the daily grind we must not forget about our own personal accomplishments. So as I speedily arrive to the end of this month, what have I been up to?
Debut Novel – My Final Edits Done!
On Friday 15th May I finally completed the last edit on my book which got underway in July 2015. In essence, a story about two brothers who drove a family from London to India. A family they had never met before! I feel I have taken the book as far as I can, so now time to give it to the professionals to rip apart, join back up and see where it takes me. I’d like to thank everyone who been involved in reading, re-reading, advising, the journey became a little easier.
During the writing of this book we sadly lost one of the brothers a few years back, and while my writing dipped my motivation spurred on! A lot of this I owe to them both.
Please scroll up to the menu section to find out more about the book. It needs updating and so I will be setting up a new website dedicated to the book – coming soon.
Music Month & more in the Blogging Community
#MM (Music Month)
We kicked off May with a #MM challenge. Writers sharing one song each week with a reason as to why they chose it. Well done and thanks for taking part, if you couldn’t post, don’t worry, still take part. Head over to the site, and type “Music” in the search bar to see our posts. I am so glad to have joined this flourishing community of writers, we’ve become good friends. It’s fine that we all have busy lives, our own challenges but somehow everyone finds time and energy to post and share. So much variety in the style of writing, an honour to share the same virtual room 🙂 – let’s keep it up.
As some of you will know I’m a cycling-nerd and enjoy being on my bike. I am not about performance or speed, but distance and trying to find new places to ride along. So at the beginning of the month I set myself three challenges:
(1) 15 hrs of riding
(2) 200 miles of riding
(3) Riding to Greenwich Park (London) at night time
Glad to say I managed to get them finished. Riding at night was something I hadn’t done before, and London is one of those places which looks beautiful during the night. I waltzed in around 1.30 am, which was OK until I turned on the shower and started singing!
But in this lockdown period I have been more cyclists then ever on the road. It’s one of the best ways to get around IF the infrastructure where you are allows it and you can commute to work. As a form of exercise and mental well being then it’s up there as a good one. No matter what bike you have, get it checked over, make sure it’s road safe and hop on!
