This category encompasses the content that’s in relation to my ongoing journey towards finally writing my novel. This section will break down my 2017 plan that starts from the planning process and goes all the way to manuscript completion and beyond.
As I write this it is currently 1:03 a.m. I have already thought about calling it quits and going to bed no less than five times already. Anything less than five hours of sleep and I drag through the work day. But after falling off schedule in June due to a litany of reasons, I am determined to stay on course again.
The month of June is upon us! With that comes a lot of different meanings. But more on that in subsequent posts for the future. The big thing to focus on today is that I’ve reached the third and perhaps most pivotal of my self titled ‘Attacking the Novel’ blog series; and that is to actually write the dang thing.
We’ve reached month two of this initiative where I’ve started to finally put my metaphorical money where my mouth is. It was a great exercise in seeing just how all over the place I was with my ideas before finally sitting down and listing out my ideas.
People usually say that in hindsight, time went by so fast. THAT’S THE TRUTH! I can’t believe we’re already into the month of May. Half of 2017 is almost gone and with that, the realization of how much work is left to do if I want to stay on track for finishing at least the initial draft of my book this year. Between that, the Reading Challenge, and just general ‘adulting,’ I have my work cut out for me.
