July To Do List

I’m trying to get (somewhat) organised, so I thought I might make myself a list of what I need to do this month to hopefully help. The chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sometimes makes it difficult to focus on things, and remember things, so having it in list form sometimes helps.

  • Revise as many chapters as possible.
  • Sort through Shutterstock account and buy stock photos.
  • Buy paint and paint brushes.
  • Paint living room.
  • Arrange Wattpad account.
  • Edit Wattpad story for publishing in July or August.
  • Prepare guest room for family visit on 20-28 July.
  • Participate in #WIPJoy on Twitter.

What do you have to get done during July?

Monday Movie

I just saw the trailer for Marvel’s new TV-series Inhumans, and it’s looking pretty interesting. Admittedly, I’m fairly new to these characters, so I’m coming at it with fresh eyes. My first thought when watching the trailer was to wonder if Iwan Rheon always plays a bad guy. (Then again, I’ve only seen him in GoT…)

What do you think does the trailer seem interesting?

Blog Dilemma

I’m struggling with a decision.

Basically, I have too many blogs. I have a personal blog where I tend to put everything, including boring day to day stuff. It’s possibly somewhere in between a personal journal and a blog, and I enjoy keeping it since I’ve had it for over ten years. It’s nice being able to go back to it and see what happened when etc. (Especially since my memory is terrible.)

Then there’s this one, which I haven’t updated for a while since I went back to my original blog (above) while trying to decide what to do.

Then there’s my future author blog. Which at the moment is pretty much empty, since I’m not writing there yet, and even when I do – it might mainly be news updates about new books etc.

The decision I’m trying to make is basically how many blogs to keep.

Option 1: Keep only personal blog and author blog.

Option 2: Keep all three blogs, cross-posting non-personal stuff on The Struggling Writer and personal blog. Author blog still just book news etc.

Option 3: Same as option 1, but author blog basically turns into The Struggling Writer with those types of posts posted there.

Option 4: Merge personal blog with The Struggling Writer, meaning all posts end up on TSW (author blog still only just author blog.)

I’m really struggling with this decision, so if anyone has any input, feel free to give suggestions!

Instagram Roundup (June)

Roundup of Instagram posts for the month of June.

I marveled at the “wrongness” of the meatball dish at IKEA. It’s meant to be boiled potatoes, not chips!

The fancy promenade in the neighborhood where our house was.

A view in Spain.

The boyfriend got a very tasty dish in a restaurant. Showing off his usual hate of photos.

Interesting cliff formations at Bolnuevo in Spain.

The boyfriend and I at the beach in Spain one evening. At least he’s not flipping me off for once, only sticking his tongue out.

Funny sign at the Steam Vintage Tea Rooms.

Lovely afternoon tea at the Steam Vintage Tea Rooms.

The two cakes I made for the Swedish Midsummer BBQ. The green one is marzipan and the other is strawberries and cream.
