My Week In Writing

What a week! Child #3 has had a cold and naturally, it went straight to his chest and asthma. We had a few sleepless nights, but thankfully he’s coming out the other side without needing antibiotics for a change! ⭐️⭐️

Despite the sleepless nights, I’ve stayed on schedule with my clients. Things are progressing wonderfully with the books I’m working on. I had to step out of my comfort zone this week and complete a couple of tasks that are usually outside of what I offer in my role.

My calendar is completely full right now, I’m back to back with clients and loving every second of it. I am blessed to be busy, and I’m soaking up every single moment and every single lesson I find in each day.

Personal writing – I finally have an ending for my book! It came to me on one of the school runs this week while staring dreamily at the old brick building, and waiting for my child to be released back to me. The next stage is actually writing that ending and getting a complete first draft. I’m super excited, I even have some time set aside this weekend to work on it.

Tell me about your writing projects this week? I’d love to hear your thoughts on what makes a good ending to a book? One of my favourite authors is Stephen King, but it has been said that he’s not so great at ending! What do you think?

  1. I hope your kids keep well, that you finish your book and that you roll easily with the ebb and flow of work and all the other things that you do. Wow.
    I can’t say that I have a favourite ending but I do like the story line to be wrapped up. I don’t mind an implied ending but rarely like a cliff drop into nothingness/ work it out yourself type of ending.
    At the end of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, I spent an extraordinary night of dreaming about the next adventure. That has got to be the greatest gift to a reader, the creation of characters, settings, situations and circumstances that live in the mind.
    Kind regards

    • This is so true, the best kinds of stories take on a life of their own long after the closing of the book. That doesn’t have to mean a cliffhanger ending either, it just means there was so much substance to the world the author created, that it took on a life of its own within the imagination of the reader.

  2. Glad #3 is on the mend! My favorite endings wrap up by the end of the book. Many times I’m still left wanting more of the characters and their world, but whatever issues, mystery, or conflict are resolved. I abhor cliffhangers and I have a few favorite authors that consistently use them. The only way I can tolerate that is to wait until the series is completed, then read it all at once.

  3. Emma. Your blog is so inspiring! I’m in the process of converting my four novels into paperbacks and it’s kicking my butt! I have all the paperback pdf’s necessary but they haven’t conveyed properly. Hate to admit that I’m too old to understand the terminology on Kindle Cover Creator but it should be easier than this!!! Aargh, did you encounter this too? Blessings back, Ellie

    • Thank you for your kind words! Yes paperback formatting is slightly different to ebook formatting – but how amazing is it going to feel when you have it finished knowing you overcame the challenge??!! ⭐️⭐️


  4. I am working on a funny book, it’s in the begin stage. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors. I’d like to have his drive to keep on creating little jewels of literary genius.
