On a brighter note, I've started draft #2! :D Super happy about that, sad that I haven't had the time to touch it in days though. I'm handwriting this one because I usually hand write the first draft but for some reason switched to the computer early in. Anyway, I feel the need to get more personal with this draft so it's coming out in pen this time and will move back to the computer either as I see fit or when draft 2 is complete.
Just to show you guys how I distinguish the days, I only that today was Wednesday because Glee came on. I knew it was either Monday or Wednesday because of my classes, but Glee was the main indicator. Which, by the way, if you aren't watching that show, you should. It's pretty awesome.
School is going fairly well. Balancing everything out is more than a little difficult but I'm having fun and enjoying the things I'm doing, and that's the important thing, right? Haha. The Canterbury Tales, Cyrano de Bergerac, and World Mythology are calling my name, so rather than getting any writing/editing done I'm going to be a good student and try to do homework instead.
Are you behind on anything this week? Have you been meeting your writing goals?

I got 1000 words down yesterday which was fantastic but I didn't find time to blog so yea. Anyway I realized that the two final chapters I had planned were really just one chapter so I sat down and finished the sucker today and finally got to type THE END. Such a great feeling. *happy dance!!!*
Rise of the Phoenix is 55,450 words and 225 pages for the draft number 1. There is so much more I need to add than I need to cut and I'm super freaking psyched. Draft 2 here I come!!
In other news, Glee and Supernatural rocked my socks off. Can't wait for next week!
Do you have any TV shows you watch to relax?

Last week I got 600 words. It was amazing! And then I realized I needed to outline the ending because part of the reason I hadn't been making any progress was that I didn't know for sure what I wanted to happen. But now I do. And it makes me happy. :D
Life has been seriously hectic lately and I'm STILL trying to sort out my time. It's actually kind of ridiculous but eventually I'll get everything worked out, right? Right? I hope so.
I'm still trying to read all of your wonderful blogs but commenting has been cut back recently. In fact, I think the only person who's received a comment lately was Natalie Whipple, who is absolutely amazing and now signed with the awesome Nathan Bransford. So CONGRATULATIONS!! to her again.
So don't feel bad if I haven't commented, I'm trying to juggle a gazillion things and commenting and even reading blogs just isn't a priority right now. And speaking of priorities, I've got to go do a ton of reading for school and then sacrifice a workout to the Writing Gods so that I might make some progress on my WiP this week.
Goal for next WiP Wednesday: have at least 1 new chapter written.
Dream for next WiP Wednesday: have the 1st draft complete.
What are your (writing) goals for this week?
