Friends, Romans, Fl*sters how are we today? I never do new year’s resolutions simply because they only last a couple of days. But I’ve made a promise to myself, I’m going to try and write something every day even if it’s only a comment on someone else’s journal. Having said that after being missing for a week, I’m going to empty my in box and start again from tomorrow. I’m not going to put myself under pressure I’m just going to enjoy myself.

Speaking of writing so far, I’ve managed 1000 words for the Big Bang! That’s a thousand words I’m keeping, I’ve deleted almost as many *G*. And if I miss the 1st May deadline then I’m not going to get stressed about it, I’ll still finish this story

 I’ve been getting some inspiration by doing a little bit of reading. I got my hands on one of Steve’s books, a great little crime thriller by the name of Silent Scream by Angela Marson’s who is a local author.

The book is set in my stamping ground of the West Midlands, I recognized a lot of the locations and her detective Kim Stone is a great character. Angela has a great narrative style and she can write the Black Country dialect perfectly.
The book has been inspiring because I kept getting bogged down with crime scene details and research and it struck me, I should be writing my story and stop worrying about if it’s been done before, it doesn’t matter because this is my version and it’s a tale I want to tell.

So, fingers crossed that this year I manage to be more creative, without putting too much pressure on myself. After all this all about enjoying myself and having fun with you guys.
