    They say things come in threes, right? So I wonder what my last bit of bad luck is going to be... 1) I fall off a horse. 2) I kill my knee during a cha cha test this morning, and can't put weight on it at all. What next? *knocks on wood*

    so i'm back from tutoring and spending a few hours at the restaurant Will works at. As i was sitting there contemplating life, i realized a few things. 1) this week i'm going to hard core work out. 2) I'm going to see if I can write 50K in a week. That's 7,140 words a day. I'm going to attempt to finish UZ in a week.

    Challenge accepted.

    I hope I can! I doubt it, but I can try. This would leave me with the rest of the school year and summer to work on LotF books and finding beta readers for various books I'm looking to finally FINALLY get submitted somewhere.

    Well next week is spring break, the one change i have at relaxation and writing time before school work goes in overload squared. So I'm hoping since i already wrote this book once, (now just a slightly different modified ending and different POV's) that this second time will be faster and easier. Then once i finish this book i'm taking a break from writing till something actually comes of one of my books. So by the time summer hits my goal is to be completely free of writing UZ so i can focus fully on query writing, agent hunting, edits, beta hunting, and such, for FREAKS, TAJ and UZ

    I'm feeling the need to go hide from your productivity.

    No need to hide.

    I say this every summer though.... and 4-5 years later... nothings happened and I've given up to drown my sorrows in writing more books that wont be seen by another souls eyes for years and year to come. So it sounds all nice and productive but it probably actually wont be.

    And its officially been 10 years since i started my series. I remember being caught writing in class on March 11th 2002 in 7th grade, And i'd started the week before. I remember because like it was some sort of school paper i put the date up at the top. Still have it on the opening of chapter 4 in the original version. Sadly this really depresses me.

    I can do this. Two more days until spring break. Just two more days. I can survive.

    I hope.

    Morning team.

    It's been ten years for me too, Ally. I know exactly how depressing that is.

    Gooood morning!!!

    I did not sleep a wink last night. Tried to, but it didn't work out. Now I'm gonna see if I can make some writing progress while I'm pretty alert before I turn sluggish as the day goes on lol.

    I'm about to get back to revising Weeping. I let myself relax and play some Skyrim for awhile today...now for more work.

    I think you can post outlines as long as you say that that's what it is. Pretty sure I've seen people do it before.

    Still kind of want opinions on some aspects of the plot. Don't know how to get them now. Hummm... I'll figure out something.
