Friday I had my last History class for the summer. I am officially done until August where I will have my last or second to last semester. It all depends on if I get into the wait listed class I need. I like the whole block class they offer in the summer. It is nice to be able to take two seven week courses, even if I have to sit in a class twice as long each day. I like being able to look forward to some down time. Which in my world means time to clean the house and get caught up on the millions of projects that get pushed aside when I am in school. One of those is the novel.
It actually hasn't been pushed aside, more like placed on simmer while I decide just what needs to happen next. I realized that I was making things far too complicated so I have stopped my 2000 words a day this past week and took a step back to make sure that everything is going to work before I take the next seven week and pump out the last 40,000 words.
In order to graduate I need to take 4 classes in the Fall. German 2020, History of South Africa, Roman History, and my Senior Research Class. That means if I don't finish this draft by the 27th of August when school starts again I can pretty much count on it not seeing light again until 2013. I have a habit of being able to edit when I am swamped with other things, but not being able to produce new material. So I guess you can say the Race is On! Hope to see you on the other end!
