Coffee Break Sundays 1/20/19


1/20/19              COFFEE BREAK SUNDAY

My goodness, it’s Sunday again already!  And this time, I came armed with muffins… Oh yes! (Yes, I really did bake these).


What could be better to kick off a lazy Sunday morning than a cup of coffee and a homemade blueberry muffin? And by lazy, I indeed do mean slouching around all day doing precisely nothing at all.

Is it strange to think that this blogging malarkey is starting to feel almost normal now? Almost. It’s part of my everyday life, and yes it’s difficult to find time to create content sometimes but I couldn’t imagine my life as a writer without this place now.

So, what have I been up to this week? I feel like I have finally got into the groove of this year after a tricky start. I don’t know about you, but I set way too many new year’s resolutions – and most are already in the bin. I think it’s important to set reasonable goals. The idea that you can just change your whole lifestyle by doing this-that-and-this is just so unrealistic.

So this is my new, new year’s resolution:

Set realistic, reasonable goals! (And smash them)

I kicked off this week with a piece of flash fiction called ‘A Distant Land‘, playing with reality and seeking out our world from a different viewpoint. It also brings into focus the issue of pollution and plastic in our oceans, something that we have to take the time to think about and change.

My piece ‘Meet My Fiancée…‘ earnt me my first every badge over at YeahWrite, which I believe is a good thing! Things like this affirm that my writing is improving over time with the help of constructive criticism and that’s just great. I also really love writing comedy, so I hope to bring more of that to you in the coming weeks.

I closed out the week with a visit to the ‘Gateway of India‘ – come travel with me! I have let the blogging side of things slip a little this week (I’m looking at you Fabulous Fiction Fridays!) but I felt that last week was quite blog-heavy, so I’m trying my best to strike the right balance. I’m hopeful that this will come with time!

Well that’s my coffee gone and a blueberry muffin (or two) devoured so I’ll leave you to get on with the rest of your day. Thanks for joining me for another catch-up, I can’t wait to see what the next week brings.
