Manic Monday Strikes Back!

Monday has struck back at Sunday and here we are again. I’ve been a bit quiet lately and for the time being that’s likely to continue. There’s not much of a reason for this just damn busy and in a funny kind of mood, maybe it’s because I can’t get much done or maybe it’s becasue life i manic right now and despite furious paddling I’m not getting very far.

I am still about though and trying to keep up with all that’s going on an failing I have to say.

One thing that is coming up is that my friend Lennon from Fabulous with Glitches is going to be taking over my blog from time to time and putting some of her awesomeness onto here. If there’s anyone else that wants to take part I’m more than happy to help out. The more the merrier I say!

That’s about it for now, I hope you guys can keep up with the Great Galactic Service Station. It’s a goofy and nerdy story line I’m able to take this into the really weird directions. I didn’t post a new part last week so let’s hope this week I can pull a rabbit out of the hat! Here’s the first 5 parts for you anyway.

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 1

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 2

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 3

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 4

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 5

 

Also make sure you follow up what’s going on in the rest of the Planet Simon universe:

Planet Simon’s Manic Monday

Her we are again folks… another Manic Monday with a whole load of fun and challenges ahead. What challenges are lying ahead for you?

For me I’ve got something like:

  • Write a shed load for my story – I mean how hard can it be?
  • Complete the cover for one of my stories (surprise here to keep you guessing).
  • Blog some.
  • Catch up on posts.
  • Do a little thing called work

Not much to do then eh? Let’s see how far I get! I’ve also got the next part of The Great Galactic Service Station to compete – A few of you have been having a chuckle over it, if you’re into a bit of humerous scifi go have have a look:

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 1

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 2

The Great Galactic Service Station – Part 3

Apart from that it’s all much the same. I hope you all have a good week and see you all out there! If you’re interested here’s more places to find me:

Another Manic Monday on Planet Simon

So here we are at the start of another week – another few days of challenges and to make a difference in the world. Or of course we could all get buried in work. So what’s been going on? Work basically, just when I thought I had time a second wave comes in to knock me for six.

But despite this I actually go somewhere. On Friday I posted the first of my artwork that I’m going to start using in my stories and on the blog.

There’s going to be more of this coming as soon as there is something to post and I’m excited to be introducing this. For me this is helping me bring stories and the people within them to life more in my mind.

I’m going to start writing a few more posts on what I’ve been reading recently. There’s been a bit of a mix and some of it has already been put into posts. Keep watching bookish people, there’s going to be something for you.

Anyways, I feel like I’ve been ignoring you guys too much – I would love to re-connect with my old bloggie pals and connect with new ones. What will you all be up to this week?

I’m going to to share some regular musings and from life as we know it, because you know – some things just have to be said! Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Manic Monday on Planet Simon

OMG!!!! Just when I thought it couldn’t get worse it did. What a week – but I have a load of stuff cleared out of the way and maybe quieter times are ahead. Despite all of this I managed to squeeze some words out later in the week but it really finished me off!

 

On top of this I’ve been working on some sketching. I some may scoff or tut at this but If I’m going to write stores and hopefully books and I’m skint (which I am) then paying someone to make pretty book covers sin’t going to be easy. So I’ve been working on some sketching and I’m going to start introducing some of these this week.

If you don’t already know (if no why not?) @BloggersBash is now running the weekly #BloggersBashChat. It’s a fun and interesting way to connect with other bloggers and we’re even pulling some bloggers from their Bloggers site to WordPress on the back of this. Have a look and make sure you’re ready to chat between 7pm and 8pm UK time to take part.

Manic Monday Landing on Planet Simon

So here we are again – another Monday morning and a whole load of challenges ahead. As it seems this year in the UK Autumn started the minute September came, this makes getting the house and garden ready for winter all that more problematic as I try and avoid the deluges. This coupled with finishing off the shower room has given more more than I need to keep me out of trouble and away from my writing – this is frustrating! But saying this Autumn is my favorite time of year!

With the weather closing in though the hope that writing time will come the crappy weather isn’t unreasonable. I know Sacha is holding me to my target and I’m very aware of this!

Speaking of Sacha, if you guys don’t know the @BloggersBash is now running the weekly #BloggersBashChat. It’s a fun and interesting way to connect with other bloggers and we’re even pulling some bloggers from their Bloggers site to WordPress on the back of this. Have a look and make sure you’re ready to chat between 7pm and 8pm UK time to take part.

I’m still trying to get my promised projects into posts for you, this is I’m sorry to say more drawn out than a speech in Florence. Thanks for being great bloggies though.

Along with this are some of the regular musings and sharing from life as we know it. Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Planet Simon’s Manic Monday

My brain will explode soon, I’ve had a few days off and I’m ready to go back to work. You would think with some time off that reading and writing but alas no. It’s been grass cutting and fixing things and stuff like that so I’m climbing the walls a bit as writing is something that’s passing me by – so my goal for this week is do do some as I have a book to write before next year is up or Sacha Black is going to be ridiculing me next year

So without further ado – I better go!

That’s weird

It’s weird – why has an incomplete post titled 300 Followers! Suddenly appeared on my timeline and I’ve no idea from where.

Why??

Update: 

It seems for some reason the blog got confused and posted 300 followers instead of the lunar landings post. Still weird.

Manic Squared Monday

Today has been mental! So nuts I’ve inly had chance to write now. I remember what Alfie Doolittle said in My Fair Lady 

“Who wants to work – it takes up your whole life!”

This kind of resonates when you dont get a chance to breathe!

Still, theres a week ahead of oppurtunity and possibility. The last part of the kindness challenge is coming and its been interesting to reflect on this. I still have much to do after this challenge is over, because its never over!

I hope to get some more of my usual fun out and a little extra! So hang on guys… The week just started!

Simon 😊

Planet Simon’s Manic Monday

What a start to the week, I can barely keep up with what’s going on! Maybe the busy weekend set me off on a run that I can’t keep up with. Anyway, to the blog – this week see’s the closing of the kindness challenge so then it’s going to be up to me alone to find something to entertain you with!

Shock! Horror! Oh no!!

Fear not – I’ll find ways to bore you, I just need a few minutes to write them! 😀

I’ve not go t much more to add apart from that, so tell me – what are you my faithful bloggies up to this week? Anything that I or everyone else should know about?

As with last week I thought I would do a little self promotion of my social empire that I’ve been building lately, come and have a look:

Planet Simon Maniacal Monday Musings

So this is another Monday – it’s baking hot here and glorious weather. I’ve finally kicked this flu, it’s taken about three weeks but I finally did it!

There’s not much to say about the last week, not much really happened, particularly on here, I’ve still got some posts idea I’m rattling through and more writing that I can shake a stick at. But hey – live it!
