Still kicking the cold. Definitely feeling a lot better now though.
Looks like I won’t be the first one in the house published after all…
Since I’m getting better though, that means I can get back to work on my book! It’s so overwhelming though. I was working on an outline yesterday for which stories happened in which states and what I needed to include. Before I realized it, I was almost up to a full page outline for the prologue, South Carolina, Georgia, & Florida. So I had a chat with my mom about how to handle those kind of things. I don’t know how to tell what to cut and what to include. I feel like I could flesh every story out, in vivid detail, and tie it into my trip somehow. It’s hard to just dive in head first and not think about these things though. I just need to force myself to write, write some more, and keep writing. Editing should cut out the junk and tighten up the story. But that’s an entirely different beast to tackle, in terms of getting it edited.
So here’s to the first version of my story being 750 pages!
Today’s also the first weekend since the first week of the season and I left on my trip that I’m able to just kick back and watch football. Bowl season starts today! So far, so good in my bowl pick ’ems pool I’m in. Go BYU and the Mormons! My bowl tickets also came in the mail. Can’t wait for New Years Eve to invade Charlotte! Hopefully this game will end much better than the Clemson/Auburn game I went to.
That’s all I got, folks. Officially a week until Christmas! Hope everyone’s enjoying the season.
