I haven't done a writing update for a while, and I have a big week up ahead with regards my writing and my degree, so I thought this was a good time for one. Hopefully it’ll help minimise my stress over the next eight days.
This latest journal entry talks about the structure of my writing and some possibilities for the future. It touches on therapeutic societies and whether they are a good or bad thing, before discussing my lockdown fatigue. Finally, there are some short reviews of films I've seen recently.
Chapter Ten: Glenn Roeder Tribute, Darts Tips for 2021, Newcastle's Injury Crisis and Something Nice That Happened Today
This latest journal entry pays tribute to Glenn Roeder, the former Newcastle player and manager. I also name five darts players I think will shine this year, comment on how Newcastle's injury crisis should be seen as an opportunity, and finish with a nice story that made me smile.
Chapter Seven: The Struggle For Relevancy, Reminiscences of the Glory Days, Mortgage Rejections and University Successes
I talk about the difficulty in attracting readers to my website, while remembering the days when my work achieved overwhelming reactions. I discuss being rejected for a mortgage, and the challenge of completing my university assignment with very little time to do the work.
Steve Bruce's Newcastle are epitomised by his handling of Joelinton, with defeat at Sheffield United the final straw. The frustration that club makes me feel led to me updating this website, while Call the Midwife also lifted my mood with their wonderful portrayal of someone with Down's syndrome.
