This is my Sunday post where I tell you about things that have happened in the past week and things that are going to happen this week.
This week was average. Unfortunately, I didn’t get as much reading done as I would’ve liked – I finished only one book (Seraphina). I’m a bit annoyed with myself for this, since yesterday was probably one of the most unproductive days I’ve ever had. I wrote about five sentences for English and then gave up and baked baklava (which, I have to say was fun + relatively productive).
Today, I went to a 3/4 geography lecture (on population) which was quite interesting. Then my friend and I sushi-ed for lunch and worked solidly for approximately two and a half hours on MORE GEOGRAPHY. I am brain dead.
In more exciting news (not really), I did get some writing done!! The last time I wrote was AGES ago, so I don’t remember/can’t be bothered checking what my last word count was, but as I write this, it currently stands at 38, 208. I’m happy I finally passed the 38k mark. I’m aiming for 50k, but I’m not even sure if my novel will be finished when I reach there: it’s almost this mental block that I want to get to 50k.
This week, I plan to finish the book I’m currently reading Fairytales for Wilde Girls (Allyse Near) and read at least one other book. I would like to write some more and maybe (maybe) reach 40k. That would be seriously amazing + the more I get done now, the less I have to get done later on/closer to exams (everything is now in a measure of how close to exams it is).
Other than that, I don’t have much to aim for this week.
– Get through the week in one piece
– Finish current book, read at least ONE more
– (Probably cry about English)
– Write some more words (40k???)
– Exclaim loudly [on Friday], ‘OH MY GOD, HOW IS IT AUGUST ALREADY???’
– Eat too much baklava
(Also avoid this:)
(But ultimately, know it will happen. A lot).
What are your plans?
