    Yippee! This afternoon will help me prepare work to send to my mentor on Friday. Favourite hour of the week for sure.

      Best of luck Kate, that sounds like a great goal to go in with! Me too, they’re a definite highlight.

    Wednesday afternoon/evening a busy time for me.

    5-6 Take dog for walk

    6-7 Go to Italian conversation class

    7-8 Meet husband and dog in pub for a drink

    8-9 Dinner (cooked by husband)

    9-10 Watch something – anything – on Netflix

    10.30 Bed (ready for 7 am wakeup from dog demanding breakfast and walk)

    Sad, eh!

      Hi Karen, sounds like a busy but nice and useful day – especially with a trip to the pub and a cooked dinner for you! Looking forward to seeing you there later.

    Hi Emily.

    I’m new here, thought I might join you today.

    I am writing a novel, I have about 30k words done of a planned 55k. I don’t have the discipline to do NaNoWriMo (lol) but might find these sessions useful for motivation. Not sure what to expect so might just say hi and lurk today!

      Hi Alan, welcome! I think they are very useful for motivation.

      In The Writing Room, we begin by setting goals and focuses for the session, then we settle in to write – on camera, in silence. At the end of the hour, we share what we’ve achieved.

      Good luck with your writing – I hope to see you there!

        I have to say it was incredibly difficult to find the zoom link – is it usually emailed or something? I ended up joining so late there was little point in staying!

    Well, this worked a treat for me today. I was stuck on a bit where I really needed to know what I was going to say in order to continue and thought I’d spend a lot of the session time just racking my brains, but I soon found a solution. There has been progress!

    Hi Everyone

    Lovely to see everyone but I couldn’t join in anything today as I had no sound at all on my laptop. But I did manage to get a better feeling from a conversation I was working on. After Harry talked in his last email about characters I tried to soften a father to his young daughter. When I read it back about three days ago it sounded like a grown-up conversation, today I feel I managed a child and father conversation kinder and softer.

    Many thanks for the lovely feedback last week on Open Mic.
