Sunday and Feeling Spirited

It may be a day of rest but not for me. I have a long list of things to work through:

1. Complete my blog
2. Write my letter to a magazine (either Cosmo or Company) - I have only had some diary stories published while on work experience for my local newspaper so I'm willing to start small.
3. Start my short story for Writers magazine. The title for this is Wheelchair. Full details of this is at I get the magazine from WH Smith and while I think that past winners seem to be of the older generation it doesn't deter me from giving it a go.
4. More work on my book
5. Practice my shorthand.
6. Eat breakfast - i know this has nothing to do with writing but i think it may help as all i can think about right now is my stomach.

After all this I am going to unwind by going to see Run Fat Boy Run this evening so I shall post my views on that tomorrow.

Happy Sunday and Happy Writing!

My First Post

This is my first EVER post. My name is Lily Sheehan and I am a writer. There I said it and it feels great. As well as writing I have been reading some great blogs - my most favourites being A. Writer and Writing about Writing. I entered the Miss Write competion also and until I discovered these blogs I thought I was all alone. Now I have become motivated and inspired to get writing more. I am mid way through finishing my book now. I wont be deterred even if I'm not getting help from any acclaimed authors. I have set myself a list of things to complete by the end of this month and this being one of them is now off my list. I know I sound a bit anal but it really does work as I am quite forgetful. More from me tomorrow, i wont forget - its on my list
