Not gonna lie, I have been failing this page a wee bit. Since transitioning jobs back into the business, I have a lot more time but I have zero inspiration. I haven’t been to London in four months. Plus, with the mix of the dark nights coming in it has really affected my mood. But seeing as I will be going down in four days, I think it will really do wonders for my writing.
So, this is just a quick update and a bit of a thinking out loud article about how to get back on your feet after everything is just slowed down. I had written all my articles in August and I had enough to keep the page going until August. I had about 2 a week going up and started getting into the short stories. These were a lot more work and just took it out of me.
This year was also one of the best years for shows but there are so many more coming up. I spent money in September so I have several shows coming up in the next few weeks which should keep the page going until February which is when I plan to go back down. It’s amazing how a simple place can inspire so much happiness and I am really lucky that I am able to go to these places to recharge. Another option is New York but there isn’t anything I really want to go see there right now and it isn’t finically viable at the moment.
In terms of the travel blogs. I made the decision to put money into the business and it prevented me from travelling. I have a few trips coming up but I haven’t got any plans for anything new. I am aiming for a mortgage so I am planning on saving as much as possible this summer. I also came to the realisation that I only have a couple of years left to do working holiday visas. My new target is to get a visa and have a wee bit of an income to support travelling before I get out there. I might start writing about that journey with the plan of leaving in 2 years.
In terms of novels. I had the realisation that The Jewel of the King was meant to be released on Halloween last year. The cover girl is finished but needs editing and I have sent it off to some publishers. I think I want to work on it some more. It would be good to get one project out of the way so I can start on a new one. Something very exciting. I want to write a musical and I already know which one. I think it is time to go and get the spark back.
London here I come.
