I only got two wrong, which works out to around 90%. I am happy as a result :) One less thing to worry about = bonus. 5 days ago

proudauzzieQuiz completed

I ended up getting 80%. I do have a chance to repeat it and try for a higher grade. I am not sure whether I will do this yet. I will have to think about it further. 5 days ago

proudauzzieA difficult start

On Friday I started to knit a beanie. It did not go well. Now I will have to undo it all and start again. I guess that’s what you have to do when you are learning. 1 week ago


Over half way now :) 1 week ago

proudauzzieFrom a website I was looking at

How Much Do You Need to Write?

To write 100 books (75,000 words per book) over the next 30 years, you need to be writing 1,000 words per day (writing 5 days a week, 50 weeks per year). At a brisk but comfortable pace, that’s an hour a day.

If you want to write 100 books in the next 10 years, that’s 3,000 words a day.

Being prolific is closer to possible than you might have believed. 1 week ago


“You can fix anything but a blank page.”
by Nora Roberts

“You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.”
by Jack London 1 week ago


I gotta get this back in my mind to do this. The longer I wait the harder it will be. I guess I just have to bite the bullet. 1 week ago

proudauzzieRegarding my craft (sewing) magazines

I have decided that if any are not used this year, than at the end of the year they will be going out the door. I also plan to not buy anymore magazines until I use the ones I already have. It just seems pointless to buy them and not use them. 1 week ago

proudauzzieThings are going quite well.

I have nearly finished my essay research, as well as planning my essay. I must say I have never been this organised before and it feels good. I really hope to keep this up in all my subjects if I can. 1 week ago

Looking at knitting books has been fun. But now its time to do something instead of just looking. Action = results, and I’m ready. 1 week ago

proudauzziePlan written up

for the month of April. I am going to do some practice every weekday, with the intention of great improvement over the course of the month. If in the end I can complete this I will be most happy. 3 weeks ago

proudauzzieInspiration from Ira Glass - Love it.

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. It’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. But your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. And your taste is why your work disappoints you. A lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. Most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. We know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. We all go through this. And if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know its normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. Put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. It is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. And I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. It’s gonna take awhile. It’s normal to take awhile. You’ve just gotta fight your way through.” 3 weeks ago

Its amazing how much rubbish I actually have. I am quite surprised. But I know that once its all sorted out things will be much better, so I am not too worried at the moment. 4 weeks ago

proudauzzieInspiration and the resulting goal

Over last week or two I have read or spoken about how touch typing can be beneficial. So my goal is to be able to touch type at 50 wpm, instead of the two finger typing that I currently do. 4 weeks ago
