Coffee and writing go so well together
I would say that today was sort of a typical writing day because I took time off from my day job. Otherwise, things are not quite as easy to plan or describe.
So today I woke up just after 6am, made a strong black coffee and switched on my laptop. I wonder how many people around the world did the same thing at a similar time this morning…? After checking my emails, Facebook and a bit of Twitter, I made some porridge for breakfast. Today I chose not to eat in front of my laptop and read blogs as I sometimes do. Oh, no! Today I was determined to get quite a few things done, which is why I planned my day whilst eating breakfast in the kitchen.
I started my writing with an assignment for the journalistic writing course. A bit of research involved, some serious thinking and then I typed it all up, put a ribbon on it and sent it off to my tutor! Only kidding about the ribbon :).
My next task was to send some emails, which was followed by a couple of phone calls – all good news about some very exciting projects! If you stick around, you will hear more about this in the next few weeks!
Lunch was quinoa with vegetables and chicken – leftovers from last night’s dinner and then I was straight back on my laptop Twittering, reading blogs, researching and some more tapping.
As I was having lunch on my own (husband worked through his lunch today), I got really excited about this feature idea. I won’t tell you much about it now, as I wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, but it’s a good read :).
I managed to finish writing the feature just in time before I was due to go to the dentist. I won’t lie, I am still scared of these visits and I get quite stressed out each time I go there. The dentist is a lovely lady but it’s the sound of those awful drills and someone poking inside my mouth that I can’t stand. It’s pure torture and yet I pay to have that done again in 3 weeks time! The numbing sensation that stayed with me all evening.
Dinner was tuna pasta bake – I needed something easy to cook that would take my mind off the numbing sensation. Eating each mouthful was a challenge and my taste was only half there.
Before I go downstairs to watch Lord Sugar firing another apprentice, here I am tapping away writing this post. It should be bedtime soon after that as I’ve got an early start tomorrow.
That’s been my day today! I’m quite pleased with the tasks I’ve managed to achieve.
