If we were having coffee – 7 November 2015

It’s once again a weekend! Even though it felt as though the week was long and full of events, it now feels like is whooshed by in no time.

If we were having coffee, well then I would have to deceive you and propose you some tea, orange juice, water or milk, I can even make you a hot chocolate if you wish. There just won’t be any coffee. I won’t be abel to have you over for long, S came back from London last night. So once he gets home from work I won’t linger on the computer very much.

If we were having coffee tea, I would ask you how you are doing. How are you? Are you enjoying fall/autumn (never know who could be visiting 😉, now do I?)? If you write, are you participating in NaNoWriMo? If you have a blog, are you participating in NaNoWriMo, I prefer NanoPoblano? Have you been spending quality time with your family, friends, loved one? What are your projects for the weekend?

A girl lost in Time - Solveig Werner, working title, NaNoWriMo If we were having coffee, then I’d probably tell you how glad I am that S is back, being a single parent is hard, and I am happy that I am not actually a single parent. I would tell you that I spend a lot of time with my mother. I spend a lot of time with my parents this week, who had a very good friend over. I would tell you that I have been crazy enough to sign up for both NaNoWriMo (find me under SolveigJW) and NanoPoblano.I am a bit short of yesterdays writing goal, and am not sure how much I will get one this weekend. My story has been unfolding nicely, and I even found a cover image, a photo I took the other day which does fit perfectly with my story. It is the photo of a sculpture by Seward Johnson.

I made a new friend the other day whilst in the park, a girl who is also participating in NaNoWriMo and it was definitely nice to have a chat.

This week, I wrote on various topics on my blog. On Sunday, I published a list on why writing in a notebook is great, and that post just seemed to be loved, the disadvantages will be up tomorrow. Then on Wednesday I wrote about what I have been observing lately regarding young graduates and the job market, and it seems that this post has struck a chord with many people, most comments are the length of a blogpost…

If we were having coffee, you would probably want to know about my plans for the days to come. Now what are my plans? Well it does look like a lovely day, so we’ll be outside a bit. I am going to enjoy some good tea with S and little one. I want to discover some new parts of Paris to share here, maybe not this weekend, maybe during the week. Maybe I’ll try to see a few friends in the weeks to come. I will work on my novel, and on my blog. I already have a plan for December and November is just 7 days old…

This coming Wednesday I will be doing my second guest post! Gulara Vincent is having me over to share the reasons why I write. I do recommend that you check out her very inspiring blog. In September I did my very first guest post over at Confessions of a Broccoli Addict where I shared a memory of my grandmother and a love for a poem.

Thank you so much for joining me for our little chat. Make sure you go over to Diana’s blog Part-Time Monster, she hosts this weekly linkup, checkout her coffee post and then check out the other coffee shares, if you have your own join the linky with yours!

Have a great weekend, and a good week to come!

  1. What an impressive week, Solveig! Both novel and blogging challenge – you rock! I love the book cover and the title and I’m so happy the story is unfolding nicely. And I cannot wait for your guest post too 🙂 It’s scheduled and revving to go.
    Enjoy your week-end, and wishing you another productive week ahead!

    1. I do hope that it will be just as productive. I am happy that i can say productive and not busy. I see busy as something a bit ore negative because there is no time for life. But being productive means that you have time even if you are working/creating/writing etc.
      I do hope that I will make it through both challenges. I am starting to have a hard time replying to all the comments…
      Thank you, have a great weekend!

  2. I’m impressed that you’re doing both. I think you should write a post on how you manage to do it all. Congrats on your progress thus far on NaNoWriMo. Thanks for the tea. I look forward to reading your post over at Gulara’s blog.

    1. I guess at the halfway point I’ll have to post about it. At the moment, if I continue to reply to comments I will never make both… 🙂 Have a great weekend Ula!


  3. Sounds like a good, productive week!

    I decided to forgo NaNo this year in favor of NanoPoblano. I wasn’t sure I could pull both of the them off, and I wanted to focus on the blog. Impressive that you’re doing both—good luck!

    1. Thank you, I do hope that I will make it until the end of the month. I wanted to give my blog a boost, but at the same time I wanted to get into the writing a bit more seriously, I see it as a sort of practicing ground. If I make it through without being exhausted then I will have passed the test.
