Facing Fears

So tonight I did the scariest thing in my life, I asked my husband to read my first 6 chapters and tell me what he thinks. This is a big big step for me because I have a hard time letting anyone but my sisters read my stuff because it is a little like letting them read my diary. I hope he likes it. He is kind of my tester. If he likes it then most people will because he likes kind of mainstream stuff. Well pray for me.

UGGGG. I am so sick of writing paper after paper. Most of my teachers want the three R's Read Recite and Regurgitate. I don’t understand how you are supposed to learn when you aren’t allowed to think for yourself. I think that is why I love writing so much. It is all me all the time. I hate mindless writing. One more week and then the summer semester starts and I will have 4 weeks till I have to do it again at this frequency. School will never be over. I will die a student. It wouldn’t be so bad if I was actually learning something new. If you only had to take classes that you would learn from I would have graduated in less than a year. I can’t wait to be done.

First write-a-thon

Ok so it didnt go very well today. I did do it as I said I would, but I couldn't do it for the full 2 hours. I am really sick. I started off with 7,533 words and finished with 8,119 words. I know that I could have done better but considering that at the moment I am wishing I was dead I did good. Maybe I will do better next time. At least I stuck with it and got something down right. If anyone did it with me I would love to hear how you did.

My Goal

Ok so I was so happy when I did the Write-a-thon so I have set a goal. And if anyone wants to do it with me they can I would love to hear how you do. But I am going to have a personal write-a-thon every Friday. It will be for 2 hours anytime during the day. (Remember I have a short attention span). So this is my new goal. This will hopefully help with my chronic procrastination.

Brain Burp

So I have been staring at the screen for I don’t know how long and the only words that have come out are "Chapter 6". I don’t know what is wrong with me. I know what I want to write but its like my brain and hand are mad at each other and now they aren’t speaking. I think that they are giving each other the cold shoulder. I hope that writing this will help them get some communication going. I hate days like this. It may have been cause by the test that I took earlier in my bible as lit class. It kind of fried my brain. Hummmm any one have an idea of what I can do to fix this?

Gerrr, I really hate editing. No, not heavy editing but just enough to make sure that my story is still on track and such. I keep watching my word count drop word by word as I delete. I never seem to add as much as I removed. It sucks. And on top of everything my attention span is even shorter today than normal, and for those of you that know me you will know what this means. (I have the attention span of a Nat normally and they only live for an hour. JK.) Gerrr so frustrated. I can’t wait till school is out for the summer so that I can have my brain back.

I just finished the write-athon and it was awsome. I had so much fun.
 Starting time 6:28

Word count 3714

End time 10:39 (Got a phone call so i didn't count that time)

End word count 7668

That is a total of 3954

I was 46 words short of 4000. And i fininshed chapter 3, 4 and started 5. I couldnt be happier. But now my brain is fried. I think I need to go to bed.
