Everything sucks and I hate you. (Not really, but still.)

Nah, I’m kiddng. I don’t really hate you. >_>

But everything kinda sucks. I caught a cold at work, and my ear aches cause I slept on it wrong, and my wisdom teeth are bothering me. So, basically, my head is about to a’splode.

I also really really really want a Kindle Fire now. I think I’m going to buy myself one after a little while. There are a ton of free books I want to read.

Also-also, chapter 7 is a bitch and I would like to be done with it now. :I But I have to go to work, and thats seriously cutting in on my writing time. (I realize it’s ironic to complain about things cutting in on writing time, when I’m sitting here blogging about it, but still)

Kicking myself in the butt.

Or, I need to anyway. I’ve been very lazy about my word count today. Granted, I also had a final exam, but… who cares about final exams when there’s books to write? (Thats not true. I care. But still.)

I think it’s because I’m still in the early stages of this whole writing thing. I need a personal trainer, but for writing. Someone to punch me in the ass when I started floating over to Pinterest for my books board, or looking at the Facebook page for it. I dunno. Maybe I have natural lazyness? Am I afraid? Probably. I think I’m just the kind of person who needs absolute peace and quiet to really churn out the good stuff.

But I do like my book so far. I’m having these weird moments where it sort of just writes itself. Some random cool idea will wiggle its way in without me even trying. It’s very cool. Ask me about the Tank sometime. Bloop.

In other news, I’m still distracted. There’s a lot of ‘promotional’ stuff to do. Facebook pages, and vlogs (if I ever get up the courage), and a Pinterest board, and a whole bunch of other junk. I think I may be getting ahead of myself, though. This is the kind of thing you should be focusing on -after- a book is finished, not before. I think I’m just too excited for myself, or something.

I think I will keep up with this blog, just for the sake of documenting my progress and my ups and downs and stuff, but I dont think I’m going to do anything majorly besides that. I did some napkin math type planning, and if I stick to around 3k to 4k words a day, I should be able to finish the first draft in about a month. Perphaps. That’s the plan anyway.

I really hope I can do this. I know I can do this, but I really hope I actually do this.
