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:

Just another Manic Monday

Those bloggies that follow me more than others will have realised that I missed out last weeks manic Monday post. Ooops, my bad – but there’s never a dull moment around here.

Well you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve been working my ass off, getting ten thousand words written in my book and things are running along nicely. NOT! I wish I could write that in seriously but unfortunately with a shower room to finish off my stories have progress at a non-existent pace. BUT – this is going to change. With this piece of work done and with a few strategies in my head I’m going to get things moving forward and hopefully be able to update you with new and exciting stuff. Fingers crossed I can make this happen eh?

Along with everything there’s an end to an era coming when the Cassini spacecraft completes it’s grand finale on Friday and I’m hoping to have a corker of a post on this. This is to add to the post I cranked out (probably far too quickly) on Voyager’s 1&2 40th anniversary.

Planet Simon’s Return to Manic Monday

I know – it’s been a couple of weeks. I know that maybe a few of you might have noticed this. I know… sorry I came back lol! ;-P

Ok, so I said that I needed to start writing, so I have. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t any kind of rocket speed but I am starting to get words into a story. Or rather stories. I’m not going to pretend I’m focused or have a great schedule but you know it’s a start. So I’ve spent some time away to have a think – about how to blog and write and create worlds – because I’ve been doing that too and this is all to come in future posts.

So what am I up to? Well I’ve got my first proper book in progress at about 5 k words currently down and many, many more to follow. I am so undecided on a title for this story which is a pain because I more or less know in my head how it’s going to pan out. I think it’s great!

Then there’s my second project – rewriting the Titan Mystery now called the Titan Destiny as I think it sounds less corny.

Apart from that there’s more of the usual tosh and some new things – after thinking about it I have been reading a lot of books recently, more often than not children’s books. So I’m going to write a few posts on these and add it to the library of books I’ve written about. Also the eagle eyes among you will have noticed a slightly different look to the Planet Simon site and the headers, it’s good to change it up sometimes.

So… keep watching.

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!

Mad Manic Monday on Planet Simon

This is the first chance I’ve had to post today – the writing tool has been down for a bit which has added to the mad manics of my usual Monday. Some of this however is self inflicted… let me explain.

For some time I’ve been spending too long on writing my first work of art. My good friend Sacha Black is always and forever encouraging me to get my arse into gear. Chatting with her yesterday I dropped myself in it – Sacha challenged me to get a book out next year to which I agreed and added “You can publicly ridicule me I don’t!”

The thing is Sacha will… So I better get writing! By the way, Sacha is getting close to release her novel and had a cover reveal the other day – go and have a look at it:

KEEPERS – THE EDEN EAST NOVELS

So on top of this I’ve got some more stuff and idea to carry out and post on here – some of it in the future is going to be a tantalising look at what may be to come. This week there’s some good stuff coming too but I won’t be around much so carry on as you were! 🙂

Manic Monday on Planet Simon

I’m not sure why I used that header image – it just seems kinda fun to me, maybe I’ll be concocting some evil things this week – who knows?

But this is the start of another week, another 5 days or so to get through before the next weekend comes and we can do whatever we like – haha… 😛

I’m kind of at another point where I need to think about what comes next – I’ve got a lot of things I could and should be doing and of course like everyone else I don’t have time for it all. So some of  these things are likely not to happen at all. So – what does one do – a small amount of big posts, or a lot of short posts or a mix of the two. I guess there’s nothing wrong in any of it but something I notice is that long posts don’t get read and that we all like pictures.

The other thing I think is going on is that the WP reader is constantly changing who our content is pushed to. So a lot of my old and faithful bloggies aren’t necessarily seeing my posts. Hmmm… this technology thing isn’t easy is it?

Buggers! Having X number of followers is no good if they can’t read it!

While I mull over this and waste yet more time I’ll get some posts in this week – I’m going to be bringing back some of the old magic to Planet Simon so keep watching! Also make sure you keep up in my other places on the interweb:

Just another… Manic Monday

So, here we are again at another fun filled Monday, outside it’s bright and sunny and the week if full of hope an expectation… Isn’t it Friday yet?!?

This week there is finally something happening here, among the musings of Minions and the memes I’ve finally got together a post of all my larger writings (most of which is unfinished) and put them into a handy little post which I’ll pin on my main page.

After this I’ll put out a separate post of the different stories split up and this is a good thing! Why you might ask – well this is the thing, keeping archives of posts or stories is great but it’s normally in reverse order, which is good for no-one! So this has also inspired me to do similar things to some of my other features so it’s all in one nice little package!

I’m also planning some page updates and stuff and to try and finally get some of the unfinished stories moving towards finished – so watch this space bloggies!

Why not also look at my social media list, by way of input does anyone actually use Facebook anymore? I’ve got a page set up but it’s largely unloved.

Planet Simon’s Mainly Manic Monday

Hi ya Bloggies!

There’s nothing like a Monday morning stuck in traffic to give you a good feel is there? I have to say I was irritated but there many more worse off than me.

With the end of the kindness challenge I find myself looking for new ideas and even going back to old ones for blogging. Who knows what will come out of here this week and going on – but it’s going to be a right mix up whatever it is.

I’m hoping that this week I’m going to publish a post that puts all or most of the short stories I’ve written (or partially written) into one place. I’m also carrying on with my series of posts on how employers treat employees. Do you have any views? Are there any stories you would like to share.

Let me know…

How are all your week’s starting out? Let me know and if you like how to find me in the social interweb of stuff:

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:
