Stupid School

I have been trying to get my writing done. I really have. The fact is that school just keeps getting in the way. My anxiety at school has been coming back, which is making things a little bit difficult, I think I’m coming down with a cold, and I just have school, then work, then homework, and then on the weekends I have Sunday school and such. It’s too much. I’m getting stressed out, but I’m handling it. I have good grades in all my classes so far and I have been going to school despite my anxiety trying to kill me. However, when it comes to writing…that’s a whole other story.

I just decided all of this this morning. I made a huge list of all my homework that I need to get done. My Health class never has homework, so that’s not a big deal, but I made a list of all the math homework, science homework, and discover teaching homework I have for the rest of the semester. I didn’t list my multicultural communications homework only because my professor gives us the homework week by week and not for the whole semester. Anyway, I’m going to get a good chunk of it done because it honestly isn’t that much to tell the truth…it just looks like a lot. I am going to go home today (because I don’t have work today) and between today and Monday (October 8) I am going to try to get as much homework done as I possibly can. Hopefully I can get all my homework done for at least October, but we’ll see.

This way, with homework out of the way, I’ll be able to focus on writing instead of homework. It’ll be the same amount of stuff I have to worry about, except I’m replacing homework with writing. I think it should work out. The other thing that I thought of doing was going through my novel list and writing summaries and/or outlines for each novel. I was looking at the list earlier and realized that there are a couple of stories that I had no idea what the plot was supposed to be. So if I outline each novel then not only will I remember what it’s about when I start writing it, but I will also have an idea about what each chapter is supposed to be about and it’ll be easier and faster to write the novel.

Does this all sound good? Does it all make sense? Probably not because I know that I said I was going to work on a book full of short stories and such to be self-published and now I’m changing my mind…again. But I guess that’s fine because I have to coordinate everything with life. Unfortunately, life is a little important. Anyway, so when I get home today I’ll start working on all my homework…I can’t start now because I only have my books for the classes I have today…which of course has no homework.

This will also be good because if I get all the October homework done early, I can try to get my November homework done really soon. If that happens then I will be able to focus more on NaNoWriMo! Yay! I can write my NaNo novel while in school and after work and such things like that instead of doing homework. When I start outlining my novels, I’ll outline the novel I’m going to do for NaNo…whatever that may be, I don’t know yet.

Anyway, I’ll update about NaNo sooner rather than later since it’s already October and November will probably be here before we know it. I’ll also update about my homework and we’ll see how that goes. I have about 100 stories to outline…this is going to be interesting!

Have I Been Writing?

Uh, No…

 

I was doing so well for a while and then I just stopped. Why? Because of life. Man, I hate life. It tends to get in the way of everything that I want to do. I have been trying to get my homework done on Sundays so then I can write at school on Mondays and possibly other days of the week depending on what other homework that I have. However, this past weekend was very busy for me. I was out all day on Saturday and out all day on Sunday. I have been doing homework at school this entire week.
I still have a little bit of math homework to finish up right now. But I have to go to class soon, so I’m just going to wait until my two-hour break between classes to get it done. After that I just have science left. Of course, I’m not going to be working on that at school today because I did not bring my science book…I did that on purpose. I’ll get it done in school tomorrow or maybe tonight. We’ll see.

Anyway, let’s just hope that it doesn’t take me two hours to get my math homework done…then I could maybe write a little bit today because I’m not going to have any time tonight to do it. So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how this goes.
Even if I do get a chance to write, what am I going to write? Uh…I guess we’ll just cross that bridge when we get to it. It’s way too early in the morning right now and it’s freezing!
