When I approached the counter of the Starbucks I’m currently writing this from, the barista, Michelle, greeted me by name. This Starbucks is across the city from where I live, so this was slightly concerning. However, it’s five minutes from Heritage Park where I’ve been going to rehearsal five times a week for the last two months.
After I plotted two books beginning to end, I thought I’d write them a lot faster. Instead, I seem to be writing at the same pace as I’ve always written, and due to my limited time, my word count has grown at an even slower pace than it did when I wrote the first draft with no plan at all.
If you were expecting daily blog posts from Vietnam like I usually do for my trips, I’m sorry to disappoint. This trip I decided I’d film vlogs instead, and now my arms are muscly from holding up cameras all month.
Despite the fact that I’ve only written a single post since the beginning of this month, people have kept subscribing to my blog. I appreciate the vote of confidence, and I suppose I should start writing again to make your loyalty worthwhile.
My summer schedule is quickly filling up. Not only am I still working on my bedroom, looking at possible summer jobs, and hoping to fit in some classes, but there’s also the possibility of a few day trips, some camping, and other summer-y things. There should be no shortage of things to blog about this summer.
There are going to be some great films that I look forward to seeing and possibly reviewing. I might also have some spare time for books. I’ve got a long list of novels to read and it’s a list that’s only going to get longer. During term time I don’t normally have the time or opportunity to read books that aren’t on my reading list, so I try to take advantage of breaks.
I want to say more, but I’ve been going to bed at a decent time for nearly a week now and it’s a streak that I want to keep going, so I’ll say good night. Until tomorrow!
