Hello, friends! How about spicing things up on my blog this week? I’m new to these link up collectives but I’m always looking for new blogs to read and new friends to make. So, I decided to join Mel’s ‘Weekly Wishes’ link up at The Nectar Collective. This week’s photo theme is ‘hobbies’, and so I took a picture that reflected my hobbies = writing – I use my MacBook to write blog posts and stories, a notepad – for all my brilliant ideas, and drinking coffee in my OMG! mug. That’s a hobby, right? 🙂
My week’s wishes include:
- Getting back on track with NaNoWriMo – this year I decided to have another go at NaNoWriMo after attempting and failing in 2011. At the moment, it’s going much the same way it did before so I’m hoping to grab a couple of hours and start writing again.
- Keep up with work – things are starting to pick up at my new job since our new product launch, and I feel like I’m a bit behind with emails/writing blog posts/other stuff. Hopefully, I’ll stay on top of it this week.
In other news, I’m sure most of you have heard about the typhoon in the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan aka Yolanda. Thankfully my family haven’t been affected and got a bit of rain and wind. My prayers do go out to the thousands of families who have been devastated by this disaster. It’s so sad 🙁
I watched a newsreel today in which the head of the Philippines Red Cross called into the news station saying there were people looting the food trucks as they made they made their way to help out families. They couldn’t get through to the police, so had to phone into the news station to get the word across. To think, there are 10,000+ families out there that are suffering and you’re looting the food trucks. Jesus.
How about you? What are your week’s wishes?
