It is an absolutely gorgeous day and I've spent most of it outside after I finished writing my humanities diversity paper on the differences and similarities between male and female. Much easier choice rather than going with straight/gay, enabled/disabled, judeo-christian/muslim or african american/white american. Have to say I thought I was taking the easy way out, but discovered lots of interesting studies about the male and female brain. Three more weeks left so I really need to get started on my final project paper about George Bernard Shaw paper. Eek!
Speaking of writing, I'm crashing and burning. You know how everybody says you should write every single day on your WIP or you'll lose momentum. I seemed to have lost my momentum and working on getting it back. I'm back to fighting my characters and have written myself into a hole. In the process of digging my way out. I can't blame summer vacation because we are still plugging away with home school for another few weeks. I know what I have to do - put the pedal to metal and push my way through.
As far as my ROW80 goals are concerned for the remainder of this round, they are going to be concerned with finishing my final project which is due June 19th. After the 19th, I'll be able to breath a bit and really concentrate on Red Thief. At this point, the goal is simply to write a little bit on it every day. I seriously doubt I'll finish the story before the end of the round. My goal for the this week is to write out a list of things to do and start reading the sources I planned on using. To see how everyone else is doing and provide them some encouragement, go here.
Oh before I forget, Chris Baty and the Office of Light and Letters has done it. National Novel Writing Month all year long. Besides just the official NaNO in November, you'll get to choose the month and go for it. You can help out by contributing to the NaNoWriMo Camp and Guts Drive. And once you do, you'll get a nifty web badge:
Today finally prepared our raised planter (so I don't have to fight the snails),. Father helped me cut the wire mesh cover and figure out how to wire tie it so the cats won't use it as a litter box. The rest of the time we were just sort of hanging out, enjoying the day.
What are you all reading this week? I just finished The Perfect Poison (arcane society # 6) by Amanda Quick aka Jayne Ann Krentz. For class, I'll be reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (seriously) plus comparing two film versions of the story. The next book up is Ben Kane's The Silver Eagle. He sent both it (and a copy to giveaway) and the 3rd book in the series "the Road to Road" which came out in March. I've been meaning to get to it forever and keep saying I'm going to read and it is sitting on the end table next to the couch. Well forever is now here. Not reading another dang thing until I get it finished.
Have a glorious weekend!
