And They Say She's In The Class A Team

Today was my official last day of school, because I picked up my report card. I did pretty well (except English, ironically. Well, I did alright, just not as well as I wanted), I saw most of my teachers, and my Law teacher and I had a long chat about writing.
Then my aunt picked me up, picked up my cousins, and we went for a movie and then for lunch. I really enjoyed the day.

Also, I should probably say something about my deadline that I didn’t accomplish.
I’m not all that upset.

I know that’s weird, because I feel like I should be upset. But the only reason I really wanted to finish by this time is so I could spend my summer editing and querying. (Though, that was before I found out just how busy my summer was going to be.) However, if there’s anything I’ve learnt from the last couple of months, it’s this;
Writing a book is not an assignment. It’s not like a semester-long project you can write the night before. It’s something that can take way longer, and from what I understand, that’s completely normal. So, as long as I finish my novel by the end of high school (and land an agent too, hopefully!), then I’ll be happy with myself. And really, that’s what’s important.

Anyways, happy summer everyone!

  1. That's so true! I seriously hate when I get pissed with myself over not meeting a deadline. I mean, when you get published you have to meet deadlines all the time, but not now. Now is the time to enjoy.
