So I started the day after 4 and a half hours sleep with friends asleep on my floor. Three of my friends who graduated last year came back to stay for Halloween and as I hadn't seen them for 5 months there was no way I was going to say no! Safe to say by the time they had all left at 4pm I was not in a fit stat to write. I cobbled together 500 words but it was soon evident that I was not going to write anything worth keep so I gave in and went to bed.
Today, however, has been really rather productive. I got up with much more energy and sat down and wrote 1000 words in 40 minutes, the words came on the most case easily and so after a small break to re-hydrate and give my writing brain a quick rest I was back to it and wrote did the same again!
So now I have 2000 words and am feel much better about the whole thing. Just another 48,000 word to go!
I am of to write some more now so I can get back on schedule and make the 3334 word count but before I do that I thought I would share with you a really night reciepe for those cold writing evenings. It's the perfect leave in the oven dish, it only takes a few ingredients and doesn't take long to prepare, then you can get on with writing while it bakes in the oven.
Potato and Onion Bake topped with Crispy Bacon
- Arrange sliced Potatoes and onions in a oven dish in alternate layers seasoning each layer with black pepper.
- Add chicken stock up to about half way through the potato/onion layers then back in the oven on a medium heat for about 45 minutes.
- Finally add slice of bacon to the top and bake for a further 15 minutes to allow them to go crispy.
I do this dish all the time, no need to weigh out ingredient just choose a dish that suits the number you are feeding (and there appetites) and fill it up.
Hope your writing is going well!
