End of the Summer

August 28th, 2011

Whelp. As I’m writing this, my stuff is being packed up and getting ready to be loaded into the car to head back to White Plains for my last year of school. I can tell you… I’m VERY ready to be done.

What does this mean for my writing? Well, I didn’t manage to hit the goal I had set for myself: having 50,000 words written by the end of the summer. I know it was a HUGE goal to have set, especially given the fact that I was working full time at a law firm. After writing 4k a day for the attorneys, it’s rather hard to have the attention span to write your own things.

But, given all of that (and some of my own personal health problems), I was still able to get 20k. Done. Personally? This is the most I’ve ever written in one go. There was a part of me that wondered if I could even get this far without petering out. You know… shiny object syndrome.

Oh look. Shrimp!

I have announced what I’m doing to some of my friends… the ones who wouldn’t laugh at me if I just couldn’t finish this. Once I get to 25k, I’ll finally reveal what I’m doing to the rest. Halfway through (though I do have a feeling it’ll go past 50k, it’s still the first word count goal!), and I know I’ll be able to push and get the rest done.

I am determined to, at least once a week, go to a local cafe to write. I don’t want to get sucked into school so completely that I don’t get to enjoy my true passion: writing.

But you know what they say about best laid plans…

Guess all I can do is hope!
