Got 56 out of 63 scenes, and a healthy chunk out of scene 57 (which promises to be long long long).
I need to pace myself better. On Thursday I got through 2 new scenes in a couple of intense writing sessions. I was so burnt out from that, I spent all of Friday reading (books 2 and 3 of the Codex Alera, thankyouverymuch). Hemmed and hawed and dillydallied Saturday before getting in another two scenes. Started tonight’s writing session late because I’m so up and down and all around in terms of mood. Bad diet? Not enough exercise? Too much story intensity?
School starts tomorrow. The kids are excited. I spent some time today organizing our school shelves. Barring a few miscellany, we’re all set to go!
It’s so exciting from out here, watching your steady progress towards completion! I love it! Particularly, as I’ve gotten nowhere. Ah well.
And yikes! My niece is already back in school too! I always forget that nowadays, school kicks off in August, as opposed to when I was little and it was always after Labor Day.
Thanks, Deb. It feels like a slog from my perspective, but all I can see are the trench walls. I need someone peering in from the outside to assure me that I am making progress. 🙂
I do school from August to May, because it feels right to me (ingrained from my school years). And, after our first day back, I feel like everyone is happier with the schedule and intellectual stimulation of schoolwork.
