Hey, so I’ve been Away From the Keyboard Lately (See what I did there? I apologise, won’t attempt that again, sorry.)
Anyway, I’ve not posted any of my own work on here for a while. Just been updating you on what Adams been writing about over on his website. There is a reason, a few in fact.
I spent last week preparing for a job interview, which was yesterday. It went as well as could be expected I guess. Coulda been better, coulda been a lot worse. I will find out either on Friday or next Monday if they want me for the second stage of interviews. So I’ll update you on that next week.
I’ve also been working on my short story, which is for a Manchester Writers Competition. The story needs to be 2500 words or less, and is due by the 20th of this month, I have 9 days left to finish it. I’m already on my third draft, however today I had an idea that I believe is better. So I need to re-write almost the entire thing. I’ll let you know how that goes as well, although I can’t post the story on here until February, which is when the competition ends and the winners are chosen. First place is £10,000. Fingers crossed.
The next reason I’ve not been on here is because I’ve been writing lots of posts. I’m really interested in writing, and would like to get better at it. So I’ve taken a leaf out of Adams book and started making a OPAD (One Post A Day). This however won’t start until October. I want to get ahead of myself before I start posting them. I’m aiming at 300 words per post. The first five are done and I have enough to write about for another twenty. But I want to get to 100 before I post the first one, So the chances of me getting behind and missing days will be less likely.
Aaaand the final reason I’ve been AFK is because I’ve started to study Mathematics. This is something I’ve wanted to do for a few years now and finally got round to doing. I’ve spent the last 2 weeks just refreshing my memory of the basics of Math, but soon I’ll be going in to Algebra and all that good stuff. I may even write about it and show you what I’m working on each week.
So that’s everything I can think of. I would very much like to get the job so I can fund more things for this site, trips to blog about, videos to make, stories to share.
I’ll leave it at that. Hope you all have a great week. Thanks for reading.
