More in the life of a part time writer…

So, I got my papers for the Eng 102 class graded last week.  I seriously love A papers–they’re quick to grade, and no revisions will be landing on my desk a week later.  Then, on Friday, I picked up Eng 101 papers.  I’ve gotten five graded since then.  Life raised up and bitch-slapped me, this past weekend, and I’m still reeling.  Trying to feel my way into being productive.

I got something like six or seven thousand words written since last week.  I’m pushing to finish that damned first draft to make it STOP BUGGING ME.  Right now, Highway to Tartarus is sitting at 57,500 words/186+ pages, with a minimum of 12,000 words to go.

So, for this week…

1. I’m going to be working on writing those last three plot stories, and seeing about writing the last three non-plot related stories I’ve come up with ideas for.  Then, I’ll start back through and revise and add details where they’re needed. I do that with a hard copy–easier to read and revise, that way.  Now, where did I put that double-wide pad of sticky notes…?

2. Find double wide pad of sticky notes.

3. Finish grading the twenty papers I picked up last Friday.  Because I’m picking up another batch on Monday.

4. Work on decluttering the master bedroom so that I can fit another bookcase (or two) in on my side of the bed.

I think that’s it, for now.  I’m excited that I’m so close to finishing Highway to Tartarus.

  1. I’m glad you like the format. I tried to write this one as a novel-length first person from Hades, but it just didn’t want to go that way. I guess this series is going to stay in the novel told through short stories format. Kinda like real life, I guess…
