There is no doubt in my mind that I will be finishing this novel today. We have finally made it back to Monday, the last day we’ll be hearing from Melanie for awhile (I haven’t decided whether or not she’ll narrate another book—we’ll just have to see how things go). I’m estimating anywhere from four to six thousand more words, if all goes well. These next few chapters are where I’m going to have to bring everything full circle, wrap up all the loose ends, and toss out a few more surprises. And reveal a few lingering mysteries.
There is no doubt in my mind that I will be finishing this novel today because I absolutely have to finish this novel today. This weekend I also have to read two comm chapters, write five to six scholarship essays, and read/take notes on three biology chapters. That’s how behind I am. So if I don’t finish this thing today—like, this morning—I’m going to be in a world of hurt tomorrow and Monday morning.
So I’m going to have to figure out a way to keep myself from getting distracted. Which means I’m probably going to have to turn off my cell phone, and Facebook, and etcetera. I’m not looking forward to doing all this work, but I also now have an 85% in my communications class, and there aren’t many assignments left to pull my grade up. If I get a perfect score on everything else we do, I’m good. But I honestly don’t think that’s possible. Unless I want to fail this upcoming biology test. Which I don’t.
Now that I’ve told the world I’m finishing this thing today, the fear of disappointing the (two) people that read this blog should be enough to motivate me to reach my goal. So I’m looking forward to titling tomorrow’s post “Blog Frenzy – Day 18: I Win. Or something like that.
