I hate waiting in for deliveries. It’s frustrating, and doubly so when they don’t tell you a time that they are likely to come. It can disrupt your entire day, but I need to do it. They are delivering the things that people ordered from my Avon catalogues today. Hopefully I will be able to do some more writing later on, and then deliver some more catalogues along a different street.
Quite a active day today, well relatively speaking I suppose. I’m going to have my hair cut, I’m debating with myself whether I want to take a risk and go as short as Halle Berry, or not. Hardly have her bone structure, unfortunately, and so won’t look even half as good as she does. Well I’ll probably play it safe as usual, it’s difficult enough for the girl that cuts my hair, as she admits that she is not familiar with afro hair, and has only cut mine twice. Although she has done a fantastic job each time.
Then after the haircut I will be delivering a order to a friend who lives close by. Going to deliver another order on Friday, and hopefully the third person that ordered from me will get back in touch. I’ve texted her a couple of times, and haven’t received a response. I don’t want to pester them, but obviously I need to deliver this and collect the money.
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
