If We Were Having Coffee

weekendcoffeeshare

Yes, yes, yes, I’m aware that I’m a little late to the party this week and the teapot has gone stone cold and the coffee now has that weird film across it from sitting out all night. Apologies. Saturday sort of got away from me a little bit, but I’m here now.

So, if we were having coffee I’d be telling you that all in all this week has been pretty productive. Granted, my daily poetry guest post didn’t go as well as I hoped it would but we did get some fantastic posts from bloggers and the month isn’t over just yet. I’m also a little disappointed that I haven’t managed to get any more writing done on my novel. I’ve been keeping up with NaPoWriMo and writing at least one poem a day but when it comes to actual fiction I’ve found myself out of time in the day.

Instead of writing I’ve spent my week focusing on my AAT Level Two Accounting Technicians Course. I managed to get through a lesson a night Monday through to Thursday and module two has now been completed. This just leaves module three to complete and then I’ll be able to sit my first exam. This is why I feel my week has been productive, even though I haven’t managed to get much in the way of writing done.

This weekend was meant to be all about writing. It hasn’t quite worked out that way as Saturday was mostly spent doing housework and then going to a house viewing before having dinner out with my parents. Two glasses of wine in and once I got home the only thing I wanted to do was sleep. So that was Saturday evening gone as well.

I woke up feeling a little annoyed that I hadn’t managed to get much work done the previous day but seeing as I got through a lot in the week I’m going to cut myself some slack. The house is tidy, the laundry has all been done and I’ve got a lot of studying out of the way. I did deserve some down time so having a bit of a lazy Saturday is perfectly acceptable and I’ve still got most of Sunday to pull some productivity out of the hat.

Yesterday was a pretty cool day despite my laziness. It was 400 years since the death of Shakespeare. The NaPoWriMo prompt corresponded pretty awesomely with this in challenging participants to write a sonnet for the day. Here’s mine. As well as being Shakespeare’s death day it was also World Book Night. Unfortunately I didn’t do any reading last night which I feel a little bad about because I had been keeping an eye out for World Book Night but there’s always next year.

Talking of NaPoWriMo, there are only six days left until the end of April and the end of this wonderful event. Part of me is quite looking forward to not having to write a poem-a-day any more but I’m really proud of the stuff I’ve managed to produce this year. I’ve met some fantastic people through poetry and it’s  topic I feel passionately about so April has been a great month in my opinion.

Anyway, enough about me. How are you guys? Has it been a productive week where you are?

  1. You did have productive week even if you didn’t do the writng you wanted to do. I managed to go out of my apartment twice this week. That is an achievement for me.

          1. Haha that’s ok! I sometimes forget about my about page! I updated mine recently when my cat went missing, I’m no longer that typical writer with a cat sitting on the laptop lol!

            1. I’m sorry to hear that. Well mine still had me as studying so I thought I better change it. I’ve had to do a couple of bios for guest posts recently so it was just a matter of copy and paste.

  2. I love that you do this Weekend Coffee Share too! I only did it once so far, but I think it’s such a neat idea and a great way to interact with the readers.
