Still working on it

Hey there. I know, November is over and I didn’t complete my NaNoWriMo project. That’s fine, really. I might have mentioned that I didn’t expect to finish the book but that I thought I might have about 30,000 words. I got nearly 18000, which is only just over half.

I’m good with that. The fact that I could keep up with my schoolwork, jobs, family stuff, and church responsibilities and still write that much makes me happy. Plus, I’m really excited about this book.

Anyway, I intend to post another solid chapter tomorrow. I would do it tonight, but I’m kind of burnt out– pretty tired. I had a major presentation to do today in one of my classes that summed up the major project I’ve been working on. It went well. I’ve actually finished that project, as well as another final project for a second class. I’ve got a good start on my final design project for my Print Design class and I am mostly done with my project for Instructional Design.

All in all, I’m staying with it. Happy happy joy joy.

You know what else? People are good. People want to do the right thing. It’s a wonderful thing to see.
