Here comes the awkward part of the summer where my class is over, the musical is over, half of my family is missing, and school doesn't start for another three weeks. Yes, my mom and my brother are going to China for a couple of weeks, so it's just me and my dad. I'm going back to the land of my birth for winter break.
My birthday is on Thursday. This may sound weird, but I don't really like birthdays. I don't like planning social events (luckily, I have friends who are awesome planners), so as you might imagine, birthdays are more of a hassle than anything. We may be going on a bar crawl in Champaign. That involves no planning. Yay! But I should also celebrate part of it with my dad at least, as I think he gets lonely when nobody is home.
I'm at 53k. Progress, anyone? Tell me about it. Does your writing go faster or slower in the summer? I'm really trying to get this draft done before the semester starts. The first few weeks will be pretty packed with reading, work, and just being with people, so I don't want to worry about filling a daily quota. Editing should be perfect for that time. And then, betas! I haven't shown this draft to anyone (except people in my creative writing class). I am ready for more opinions, more critiques.
