Writing The Wedding that Changed Everything: Week Five

I kept a little diary while writing my eighth book, The Wedding That Changed Everything, which I'll be sharing on the blog over the next few weeks.

After the excitement of last week, it was time to settle down and get some new words written - especially as it's the last week before the school summer holiday starts.

It's much more difficult to find time to write during the holidays, especially as I'm not a fan of writing in the evenings. I usually want to relax with a book (for reading, definitely not my own) or TV, so getting my arse in the chair at my desk is TOUGH. Plus, if I do manage it, I find it hard to switch off afterwards, meaning I can't sleep.

So this week was important. I needed to get down as much as possible. So, off I went, fuelled by my friend, Yorkshire Tea.

Confession: it didn't go as well as I'd hoped.

My aim each week is 10,000 words and I fell short at 7,129. Coupled with the fact I was behind schedule last week too means I'm now almost 10,000 words short of the 50,000 words I wanted to be at this stage.

I really need to pull my socks up over the holidays!

Love happens when you least expect it…

Emily Atkinson stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago! She’s fed up of dating frogs in order to track down her very own Prince Charming, despite the best efforts of her matchmaking best friend…

But now she’s been invited to the wedding of the year at the enchanting Durban Castle, and perhaps bumping into a knight in shining armour isn’t as far away as she thought!

Will Emily survive the wedding and walk away an unscathed singleton – or finally find her own happily-ever-after?
