Before My Computer Dies...

I should probably get to writing, shouldn't I?

Today is Thursday, which makes it the hardest day of the week, even over Monday. I hate Mondays, too, but Thursdays are much more difficult because they're the last long day (when I work two jobs) and Friday is just around the corner, tempting me. I am going to try and pass the day as quickly and efficiently as possible, but I'll let you know how that goes.

I started writing a new novel about three weeks ago. I have already written one, which is still unfinished at just over 115,000 words, but it is now resting on the bottom shelf of my coffee table. I could easily finish it if I would just sit down and do it. It would take a good month of editing, but I just don't want to. I worked on it for a year. I love the story (it is my own, after all, and based on my friends and husband), but it just got redundant. So much of it is inspired by or nearly copied from my experiences in college but, because I miss college so much and am not far enough removed from it, I need to put it away for now.

So I'm on to the next one, which is flowing fabulously at just over 6,000 words. I hope to have it finished and sent out to agents by August 20, 2010, my 25th birthday. What a perfect present to myself! I have to finish it...if I don't, I'll hate myself.

I'll write more later, but my computer just warned me it's about to shut off. Until then,
