…coming up right after I finish this blog post.
As you may or may not remember, I made an ambitious deadline for finishing this draft of my novel. Well…the problem with ambitious deadlines is that they are, by nature, ambitious.
I’m determined to leave my deadline firmly where I
carved it into stone set it.
Therefore: today. Lots of peppermint tea. Focus turned all the way up to eleven. Twitter on in the background—for sanity breaks, of course, so I don’t go crazy. And, of course, my cat. Most importantly: perseverance.
So. Here I go.
UPDATE! Thank you all—SO MUCH!—for encouraging me today, both here in the comments and on Twitter! It helped a lot, and brightened my (very analytical, very focused) day. In case you’re wondering about my progress, it was pretty fantastic! I didn’t get through everything I’d hoped to, but that’s okay. I got through most of it, then decided a) it would be good to move around, so I took a walk, and b) I can get back to work tomorrow with fresh eyes! Again, thank you all for being awesome. :)
