Week 42 - To Do List

I’m a touch late with my to do list this week, but I shan’t dwell on that too much.  The key piece of advice I have picked up this week is to be more positive!  

So, to update from last week’s list:

  • Finish Chapter 1 of module book – I had an excellent session over the weekend getting on with my Othello reading and the background to some of the play.  I’ve been totally absorbed by it and never thought I would enjoy Shakespeare as much as this.  I’m looking forward to the next part.
Blog Posts:
  • Wednesday Blog Hop – I posted a story for the blog hop this week, and I’ve actually had thoughts on developing this one into something bigger. The creative juices are starting to flow.
  • Review latest book read – I have written the first draft of my review and I’m leaving it a couple of days before posting.  It won’t be long though.
  • Weekly to do list – a day late but I’m still going!
  • First draft of competition entry – time constraints have meant that I’ve only done the planning stages for this, but the story is in my mind simmering.
  • 15 minutes of free writing each day – after trying this for a couple of weeks I’m not sure free writing is for me.  I struggle a bit when I manage to sit down to do it, so I may leave this for a while.
A productive week I think, certainly one that has left me feeling more positive about things.

As for this week’s list:


  • Read Othello Acts 2-5 
  • Read Chapter 2 of module book 
  • Watch Othello videos

  1. Hi Heather! Congratulations on making so much progress so far! One thing I've found in getting back into the heart of writing is that it's a slow process, but every step counts! ^^ Keep up the great work!
    I know you're busy, so don't feel like you have to do it anytime soon, but I tagged you on my blog for the Look Challenge. :)
    Keep up the great work Heather! ^^ :D
