Why, oh why?

Why is it that when faced with doing homework and writing a novel, I always, always, seem to choose the novel option? I reckon it's the same for most teens who are trying to write a book, but I have to say, it's down-right difficult: I have an essay to do tonight, but insead I'm writing another chapter. Well, no, I was writing another chapter, but then I thought 'I really shouldn't be doing this', so I stopped writing the chapter, and instead...wrote on this blog. Yes, teen authors do not make the best students, I have found!

I thought this ticker was quite cool, so I'll be posting it to chart my progress. As you can see, it's goin well! I've said I'm aiming for 90,000, because I reckon that's what it'll end up at: 90,000 just won't cut it! I have reached the 85,000 mark, and so am hoping to be finished on ym first draft soon! My aim is June 1st, so I will let you know how I get on with that.

I've found a great site called Absolute Write - any budding authors should definitley check it out!

Right, I'm off to do some homework - oh, hell, why lie: I'm going to finish chapter thrity-two. =]

  1. I like the word count ticker, very cool :) You're doing fantastic with your target word count, I'm sure you'll reach it by June 1st.

    I know exactly what you mean about choosing other things over homework. I'm not writing at the moment, but I can always find something better than homework or revision! ;)
