My Week in Writing

I began my week writing Mathew’s Box which I really, really enjoyed. My focus lately has been on blogging, life-writing, and autobiographies for work. It was wonderful to sink my toes back into the foundation of my love for writing – fiction, tinged with a touch of the supernatural.

It was pretty work-heavy after that, I currently have three books that I’m working on, each with their own sub-project on the side, and all at different stages of development.

I switched grammarly back on in a document that I just wanted to skim through quickly before I had a deep dive, and I was swiftly reminded of why I absolutely hate computer software. See the picture below for clarification.

If anyone knows what “Thisch” means, I’d be super grateful if you could explain it to me. I’ve said it in a previous post – editing software can be really useful but you can not rely on it to proofread your work. You must check every suggestion manually, otherwise my “which” would have become “Thisch” in this document.

I digress! Back to writing!

I finished the final edit on a manuscript this week, that has gone back to the author for review, always super exciting to hand those over.

I’ve fallen behind on my blogging schedule which I plan to make up over the weekend, I’ve been trying to get my posts all scheduled four weeks in advance but I’ve been so busy I’ve only got another weeks worth of posts lined up. I need to get busy on WordPress!

Oh, I also really enjoyed my first post on my reading material of the week, the author was really pleased that I had bought and reviewed his book and that just made me feel awesome. I love encouraging and empowering other writers! I’ll select my next reading project this weekend, too.

What have you been writing this week? Share your links in the comments so we can all have a read!

    • I struggle to keep up with women’s fashion, but I did check out your blog, you have a wonderful passion. It’s a really useful niche that I will definitely come back to when my sons start asking me for fashion advice ⭐️

  1. Fiction is one thing I struggle with immensely. I’ve never been able to write it, nor can I manage to stay focussed on a new book that is fiction, too. I saw your prompt for ‘Mathew’s Box’, but my mind went completely blank after that. I need to get into the habit of writing for writing’s sake, which you discussed in your post about getting into a regular writing habit.

    I also use Grammarly, but as you said, we have to check out what its suggestions are because if used in the wrong context, it would simply reproduce nonsense. It does have its uses, though, but I always doubt-check the basics of my writing.

    Two of my recent posts are both poems and if anyone wants to take a look (as you suggested, Emma) the links to them are:

    Thanks for the opportunity of sharing my links. If I have misread your point on this, please feel free to remove them – I haven’t ever shared them like this before. X 🌷
