To say I’ve flapped about trying to find my feet with Twitter, I have to say I am pretty proud of my words counts.
I’ve been retreading some old ground with more character discovering and my FMC worrying about her place at school and within the family but with her setting off to school now, I can definitely feel myself moving into new territory, I say hopefully now! I’ve ended using description of the family’s parents in relation to my FMC to describe her because I am god awful at description, especially for characters and how they look. Also had the father show he wants as little to do with her as possible and finds her embarrassing but I can’t help feeling there is something underneath all that in regards to the father. Maybe I will discover it later, maybe not. We will see.
How much writing I will get done today and in the next few days may well be down to how easy or otherwise Windows 10 is to install and use.
Have some funnies this Monday!

Not a lot written and what I thought would be a helpful scene and easy words is not so easy words but the scene is providing details about the FMC and MMC. Also getting some inspiration.
Hopefully, I will get a lot more words before the end of this month. Fingers crossed.

Obviously, as you can tell from the word counts, I only managed to sit down and get any writing done yesterday. That’s partly due to being tired from life in general but also a little writer’s block as I was unsure where to go next. Getting out seems to be the answer when I have writer’s block as at least twice now this month I have got out of the house for a bit then came home just able to write.
What has actually happened in the story is that my FMC has been thinking how her life is going to be potential so very different to her family due to going to a different school, wanting to maybe follow in her grandfather’s footsteps and wondering how much contact there was between her parents and her grandparents. She’s now decided, on one of her last days at home before going to school, she is going to go into town and see how things are for her former classmates. Admittedly, it’s to try to give me word count more than is of any plot importance at the moment. May change.
Some brilliant ideas if you got stuck for presents for that writer, reader or blogger in your life!

Only thing that happened was that my FMC returned home and came face to face with her family again who were all put out that she had come home. They had thought they were rid of her forever. Ended up describing the house and the FMC’s bedroom for word count then the FMC started wondering what she should take with her to her new school. Since I never went to boarding school, I found myself wondering too. A quick Google search later unearthed a very helpful thread on popular parenting site Mumsnet answering all sorts of questions about boarding school. It is a goldmine of information. Definitely recommend it.
Now I have a rough idea of what she, the MMC and the other character should take, it should make writing easier.
