Of Research and Progression

It’s been a hectic but productive week. In the midst of moving, I have managed to get some writing and homework done. I call that productive.

Other than the boiling heat in Houston, it’s being going well. I manged to get a post published on Monday. Wednesday’s post wasn’t the greatest but I thought it was an interesting brain teaser.

This week I found an interesting blog called Query Shark. From what I have seen so far, after some regulations, people can have their query critiqued. I’ve seen many examples and comments on query letters. While I haven’t exactly gone in there and really looked around, I’m liking what I’m seeing.

I definitely need to go back to my query letter and take a look at it again. I think it woukd be safe to say that I’m having condensing all the summary. I’ve taken a look at a lot of summaries and urbs but I can’t seem to get a hang of it. I do got my one sentence summary though.

Here’s to more research and revision.

Doing Better

The weekend is here but there’s no time to waste. With going through thr certification program, my time has been eaten up by watching observational videos, homework, and work. At this point, it feels like all I do is homework.

Good news – or maybe mix news – I’ll be moving into a new place soon. Managing everything is going to be difficult but I think I have it handled.

Wven though I’m not writing as much as I want to, I am writing. Weekly chapters still go up on wattpad every Sunday. I’m staying on top of my writing prompts and Friday posts. Monday has been bleh. I need to do better. I will do better.

In general, I’m getting a couple of sentences down in my novel. Little by little, those sentences pile up and I have been making progress. For now, that’s all I can do.

Exhaustion -A ‘Poem’

Exhaustion isn’t the word I’d use to describe how I feel.

It’s the feeling of no energy.

Of being drained.

Of the weight on my eyelids and

The pressure build at the front most part of my brain.

It’s the knowledge that I can’t rest

Until I get more homework done.

It’s the combined efforts of a long week

And not enough time for everything.

It’s the unfocused part of my brain and

The refusal of my eyes to remain open.

It’s the knowledge that I won’t be home until 1am.

It’s the obligation, commitment, and responsibility all wrapped in one.

I’m Exhausted.
