Life in France: Day 19


Day 19, October 12

I am absolutely busted, tired, exhausted and just want sleep.

Work was fine. I finished what I needed to do by 14:30 and they allowed me to just browse online and stuff. Instead, I decided to take the productivity route and grabbed my USB-stick, gettingt some writing done on my new story. I wrote from 14:30 until 17:30.

After that, I went back to the apartment, made dinner (there’s nothing like some pizza!) and was talking to my friend, Elisa Michelle. She needed to get some editing done and planned on two hours of editing. With that, she decided to challenge me to write another 1,000 words in the same amount of time.

Instead, I ended up with 1,446 words, combined with the 1,755 from the afternoon.

That makes for a grand total of 3,201 words today.

My brain is now fried and I need sleep.

Because of this and lack of other interesting things today, I will cut this blog fairly short. After all that writing, even this blog seems like it’s taking forever.

All I need now is my bed, sleep and dreams. Good sleep. Without characters bothering me.

When do they ever listen?

I'm a writer, reader, gamer and a dreamer. I love losing myself to thought and considering possibilities. That is how I create my stories and weave the erratic tales into readable ones.

  1. Wow, another excellent day for writing! Well done. 😀 Haha, I don’t think the characters ever DO listen and leave us be. Not until we’ve finished writing their stories. 😉


    • So it would seem! But man, that writing drained every last bit of energy out of me. I was out no more than half an hour after posting this.
      Yeah, I don’t think they do, either. And then when we do finish, they want sequels or previously unwritten short stories.

Let me know what you think!
