I've just come to the last page of the book that I have been using as my paper travel journal. It's the second book I've gone through and with a jolt, I realised I have been away for over five months. Where the heck has the time gone? This is also the longest I've ever managed to keep a diary and I am pleased to announce it is now a habit rather than a chore to remember. I've got my next journal already *pats the pretty*.

Which leads me on to my online travel blog. It is currently very sadly behind the times but I am going to spend the next few days getting it up to date. I've decided that the word count of it should be counted to my word target of the year for writing. It is getting written and edited for other people and I am getting comments on it so it fits my own criteria. The decision pleases me because it is so time consuming and does take a lot of effort.

When I first started the travel blog it was easy and fun but then people started reading it and I became a lot more conscious of what I am saying and how I am saying it. I am currently wrestling with how to describe the Killing Fields in Cambodia. It is very hard to put into words. Part of me wants to skip over it in a paragraph but I think I should be better with words than that. So I am going to try again.

I just saw it when I was looking for icons! And yes it will help to my writing target for the year but *head desk* I write 1000 word fanfics usually, 20 000 at least...sure I've got an idea but *panic*

I may be found in flailing mess at various points feel free to dust me down and give me a good shake

I found this writing prompt and I thought it would be much more fun to do it from characters’ points of view. These characters are all original and will probably be new to most of you:

Write a list of seven reasons to turn down a marriage proposal

Calli: I’m in love with a demon
Ian: I’m gay
George: I would want to make the proposal
Roland: Vamps aren’t allowed to marry
Jenna: It would get in the way of my career
Saskia: I’ve already made one mistake with a bastard
Jaden: I’m washing my hair

My mum is trying to persuade me to go out of the house. I am resisting, though I am prepared to do voice posts if I must. It would be better if it doesn’t come to that, I don’t think I want a whole pile of people listening in, in the middle of camping shop thing.

I heard about the Bridport Short Story Contest today. The deadline is midnight. I managed to write a short story in under five hours.
