I apologise for the lack of post on Saturday; we had family round to celebrate my birthday & my cousin’s too. As for why this post is late… well, I honestly thought it was Wednesday until about 5 minutes ago. Shows how much I know.
I’ve not really been doing anything of note this week. I did a bit of writing today; a couple of chapters of Stark Trek are getting a revamp, and the sequel I planned is still in the works. I had a few chapters written, but they weren’t in any sort of coherent order. I’ve decided to just write what happens ‘during’ the actual film, rather than bothering with what the characters have been up to in between. I’ll put that in a separate story, the first chapter of which is up now. Not entirely happy with it, but I’m hoping some reviews will give me some much needed motivation.
I’ve also been working on my book a little, though that project seriously lost momentum over the exam period. I can get so much done when I’m procrastinating, it’s unreal. Well, everything except what I’m supposed to be doing. Then it wouldn’t be procrastinating, and that wouldn’t be any fun at all.
The only other thing I’ve done today is watch yesterday’s episode of The Great British Bake Off. If want to avoid spoilers, don’t read the next bit!
I was quite shocked that Flora went this week. I feel like she should have been saved by her performance in the technical; Ian’s showstopper wasn’t as impressive as anyone else’s, if you look at the brief, and he came 3rd in the technical. He’s been ‘in trouble’ for a while now too, so he definitely should have gone. That aside, my personal favourite baker is Nadiyah. She’s just so expressive! Her showstopper was awesome; especially after she thought she’d go home. I definitely wouldn’t have been able to do all that delicate chocolate work if I was nervous. I’m so glad she’s through to the final. And Tamal! He’s fantastic, obviously. Their friendly banter in the tent has been quite nice, so it’s weird when there’s so few people in the tent.
Well, I think that’s more than enough about Bake Off for today. As always, thanks for reading!
