Hooray for Christmas Break!

Finals are OVER!!!  Fall semester is FINISHED!!!  Holy Cow!  And I’m home for the holidays!  That means freedom!…for a couple of weeks, anyways.  So, the question now is: how to use this freedom?  Here’s what I plan to do over the break:

really quick

This is going to be way short.  Exam week is upon us all, and all the hecticness that it brings.  Had two exams today, a really difficult one and a really easy one (and now that Arabic 201 is officially over, I can start having fun learning Arabic…).  Got Geography tomorrow morning.  I wrote a lot today, about 1,500 words, but I’m not satisfied with this section that I just wrote and I think I’ll glance over it and make some changes tomorrow.  I can tell already that I’ll be writing A LOT over the break, possibly a few thousand words a day.  But I’m split between writing new material and making major revisions to what I already have… Continue reading “really quick”

I’ll do it in the rewrite… Continue reading “844 words, an awesome writing meeting, and some plans for submitting stuff”

1,584 words and I still don’t like 24

1,584 words tonight! Yay! Progress! In about 12,000 words, this will be the longest that I’ve ever made it in any novel attempt. And it only took 4 months (well, and about a year to come up with a fully matured concept for it)!

All this time I’ve been writing at my friend Steve’s house. For some crazy reason, he decided to watch four seasons of 24 in a week in order to be able to tell his film professors why he likes it. I’ve been watching the first few episodes of season 1 with him these past couple of days. Continue reading “1,584 words and I still don’t like 24”
