#Writing Update… Or lack of!

d7a3e-writingCurrent Word Count: 2,312 words

So the reason there hasn’t been any writing updates is because of life stuff and lack of inspiration. Every time I have sat down to write, I have hit a wall. I try to put one word in front of the word but always ended up backspacing. I have no idea why I have struggled really but I am proud to say I have at least been writing something just to push me on.

The idea to try to write non-linear is proving difficult but I think that is down to me having grown up being taught to think and write in a linear fashion. Perhaps I need to learn how to break free and experiment more in unconventional ways. If anyone has any advice on this, it would be welcomed.

Will this slump continue? I don’t know. All I know is that my 5k target is unlikely to happen, even with the bank holiday weekend and knowing that I am writing just the right thing with the 1st September on its way. (My owl with my Hogwarts letter still hasn’t shown up!) Right now, I think I just need to get writing.

Waterstones’s reply to Amazon’s Air Prime

Yes, I know! I am late with this! I’ve been busy but since Waterstones produced such a funny reply to Amazon’s idea, I had to post it!

So Amazon is planning to use robotic drones to deliver people’s packages to them. Maybe a publicity stunt for Cyber Monday yesterday but if you want more information, have a look at the BBC News article about it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25180906

Many other retailers might shrug this off and carry on with business. Not Waterstones though, no. They posted a video about their new delivery system: O.W.L.S., Ornithological Waterstones Landing Service. Have a look:
