So. I've decided that I will attempt to finish my novel. Today. I have about 20 pages left (maybe more), and that's a lot - especially considering that many important ends are being carefully tied together in those pages. Crucial chapters ahead.
I was going to relax, take this entire next week to finish the book, but then I remembered what's ahead of me this week -- more essays to grade (about 150, total, since last week), plus blood test results (for lupus - prayers appreciated). These life events will very likely distract me from finishing my book. So today, while the essays sit "on hold," and the test results are still unknown, I think I shall write. It's a lofty goal, finishing my book today, but I'm up for the challenge. I'll check back in tonight and let you know how I did! ;-)
6:01pm - UPDATE: I wrote 21 pages, nearly non-stop, in about 3 hours' time. The novel is FINISHED. Not perfect, not edited, but it's totally completed. Goal accomplished! :-)
Anybody else have a lofty goal that was important? And did you make your goal? I'd love to hear about it!
