So at my writing class last week I had to submit my personal goal for the 6 week class. All week I had been writing up a storm trying to figure out what I wanted to do. It wasn't until the night before my class that it struck me. I started writing and have been on a roll since. Due to my strike of genius the night before I decided to make myself a pretty lofty goal. I'm going to write a novel. Ha! I know it's kinda funny, Luke laughed too. I think I have a good story in mind and maybe some day you will be able to read it. They say write what you know and this... I KNOW. :)
When I submitted my goal the teacher scanned through every one's and stopped at mine. "Margaret?" he called out. "Wow you are pretty ambitious." he said.
I was all like... "really?" in my little mouse voice, TERRIFIED. "I'm just not sure what's feasible I guess." He told me 50 pages of a novel was feasible in 6 weeks but then laughed a little. Was that supposed to be encouraging? I'm not sure. Hmmm
Anyways... novel gang here I come. That's what my small group is called. On Tuesday I submitted my work so far to my small group so they can tell me how much it sucks tonight at class. Sounds fun!
So far I have been doing a good job with writing when I have free time and sometimes going to the coffee shop during lunch to write but once in a while I get what I like to call "Facebook ADHD" which is when you are doing something productive and a power comes over you so strong that you MUST check facebook. From their it's a downward spiral of photo viewing, news feed checks and other blogs reading... you might as well give up what you are doing altogether. With this undiagnosed ADHD I don't know how I'm ever going to complete my 50 pages in 6 weeks.
Wish me luck!... Oh and READ my book. When it some day, if ever, gets published. :)
