The Time to Push: Tension Rises


Yes, you read correctly. The time to push.

It is now.

After a good three weeks, perhaps even four, of not touching my novel, it is time to make a change. The deadline is creeping up at a terrifyingly fast pace and while I do have time off from college as of the 21st, there’s also a holiday in between and Christmas gifts are very distracting.

Trust me, they are.

If I get a new video game, that equals me playing it for the day itself, and at least a day or two after the 25th. Still, this year I’ll be helping more when it comes to preparing our grand feast and all those other wonderful things. The cat will be in uproar from the wrapping paper and all that fun stuff, the house will smell like food and shiny new things, and more!

Therefore, I intend to get as much writing in before then, as I can. 15,000 words, twenty-two days. I can do this.

I just need to kick-start my muse and write.

5k. I want 5k this weekend.

We’ll see how that goes.

  4. You can do it! But don’t push yourself *too* hard. You’re still recovering from illness, after all. 😉
