Well Over Three Months Have Past

via Pinterest

   *clears throat* Right. It has been a tad-bit over three months since I last posted and that was on the 31st of May and now 'tis the 3rd of September. Between then and now I have tried to decide what to post about- since I am sure my followers deserve some sort of post. So you shall get a post, though whether or not it is much good I don't know.

   Anyway, I have been taking a writing class since last September and classes will be starting up again next week. We will now have a brief pause while I panic for a couple of seconds. Alright, yes I enjoy the class and all that, but I still have my moments of panic. I love to write novels and this class is not about writing novels. It is about writing essays, research papers, profiles, and news stories. I've survived two semesters already and I feel confident that I shall make it through the following semesters. I just need to make sure I keep on top of my assignments and don't procrastinate.

   In the midst of this I am working on the second draft of my NaNoWriMo novel from 2010. I started rewriting last September, but am taking this project at a slower pace. This slower pace is going too slow, however, and so I'm setting up word count goals for myself. They aren't 1,000 words a day word count goals. I'm trying to over pressure myself. My goal is to have 10,000+ words on my second draft by the time writing class starts up again and to have 25,000+ words by January 1st of 2013. I'm not sure if I'll manage to meet all these goals, but I dearly hope I am able.

   I am also working hard on reaching my reading goal of 50 books this year. I have read some really good books this year so far, excluding some I didn't like, and I might be posting a couple book reviews every once and a while.
