Things to do before next weekend:
- Reread Turn of the Screw to prepare for auditions
- Freak out (in a good way!) because a really awesome amazing person is coming to visit
- Clean like a madwoman because said awesome amazing person is coming to visit and my house is not currently fit for company
- Sign up to participate in a 24-hour playwriting festival – something I’ve wanted to do for years
- Write a novel
All right, that last one is a little extreme. I do not intend to write a novel in a week. (I wish I could!) I’d known finishing the novel by July would be impractical, but I hoped for it, anyway. When that didn’t happen and I decided I would audition for this next show (Turn of the Screw), my new “finish” goal was audition weekend. Next weekend, in fact.
Because two chapters a week could be doable, right?
They weren’t. I did just write a chapter in three days, but that was shorter than most. And this novel has a minimum of seven chapters left to go. Ugh.
I don’t know how to go easy on myself. I keep proving this over and over. But, hey, at least I have fun. 😉
Wish me luck! I’ll need it . . .
