Seven chapters down, who knows how many to go. Is it weird that I don’t have a clue how many chapters there will be? If I had to spitball it, I’d say like eighteen. Just a guess. Anyway, it’s a great feeling, to be working hard at something I care about. And a lot of things are suddenly coming together in my life. So yay. But at the same time, a chapter every two weeks is kinda hard. I actually didn’t finish the most recent chapter on time. Two days late, actually. But I’m still optimistic about the future. Honestly, i think I can have this done, or at least in rough draft form by the end of June. In typing that, I just got this ‘Oh, god this is gonna be quite a few pages huh’ chill down my spine.
I know I probably sound like a broken record at this point but feeling supported is fantastic. Having someone to bounce ideas off of and just talk to about this is one of the greatest feelings of my life. I genuinely can’t wait for the day I actually start searching for a publishing agent, even if it’s a struggle. In fact, I want it to be a struggle. I want it to be hard. I want to have to fight for this. I want to look back after it’s all said and done and let out the longest sigh of relief and just say “Damn, that was a hell of a ride.” And I’m glad I’ve got someone that will be there every step of the way.
