Adventures in Recordland second draft done!

Today I finished the second draft of my young adult novel Adventures in Recordland which means it's almost ready to share with people....I am excited but scared to let others in to my world. I'm not so good at criticism even if delivered with the best intentions. I love my characters now, what if you all don't? And what if you don't cry at certain parts of the book like I did earlier? But it's written now and I want it to live out there in the world. The hard part is knowing when it's ready to let go.....

Mindful? Pah! Bring on Arty April

Well mindful March was a blow out. If anything it was the least mindful I've felt in years and that pissed me right off. It's been a busy year, both work and social and I've ran out of time to think between the doing at work and the zoning out at home, socialising with friends or galavallanting around Australiasia.

But I've stopped now. A weekend to myself to do the things I enjoy; make lists, watch YouTube clips of The Smiths and Aztec Camera, drink whiskey and most of all, write. And I am. I am feeling inspired and ready almost for my close up. Or Clara's close up. 

So I guess I got mindful at the end of March.....maybe I'll give it another in May. 

April is being arty and I'm excited for this, I just need to make time for it. The first 2 months were food related and food is something I have to do 3 times a day so it's easy to find time. I never thought it would be this hard to make time for the things I really want as downtime so that's a learn. 

Anyway will keep you updated! Back to the Smiths.....
