Must do some more writing. Back to Chapter Two. Delete lots of what I wrote. Force myself not to edit later chapter in novel. Finally get going on chapter Two, even though I delete more words.
Haven’t even read the three competitions I brought with me to judge. Must, must do that. They all have deadlines. Spend entire afternoon and evening reading them and making notes. Have the shortlist of 6 in the one I am judging for Wimborne Literary Festival. (This is flash fiction so not too long). Great entries. Hard to decide.
Have the shortlist of 11 in another and the shortlist of 7 in another. Make decisions on these two, but not the Flash Fiction. Must agree to judge fewer competitions. They are a wonderful displacement activity. Like blogging!
