So, three weeks ago, I realized I’d told my professors I’d hand over my novel in the second week of May–which meant that I needed to finish it by the1st, to give me time to edit it. Which meant I had fifteen chapters to write.
I now have 1.5 weeks left till the book’s due and five chapters still to write. I’ve written 35,000 words in 3.5 weeks. Today, I wrote chapter 20 while listening to a gigantic youtube playlist for The Matrix soundtrack (I’m pretty impressed by the stuff Don Davis wrote, especially percussively). I’m quite shocked I’ve managed to keep on task (4 chapters a week, which also [quite happily] means I’ve only 3 to write next week– the final week). And after I hand over the book, I get to mix an album. Yay! (That’s actually not sarcasm…)
At some point, I’ll get to start fantasizing about my trip to Finland+Norway, Sweden, Germany, Estonia, Denmark and Russia (obviously not quite in that order).
Also, I kind of really want to see this film…
