I was going to make a post about how I really want to get my book written by the end of the year, but I don’t know exactly how to do it. I’ve been waiting for feedback from my mom and Lucas on some questions I gave them to answer. I asked Lucas some about my behavior when I get depressed and how he deals with it, and I asked my mom some questions about my behavior when I tried to commit suicide for the first time and was depressed. (My memory is terrible, plus it’s good to get some outside perspective!)
I’ve been using these as a crutch to not write, and I’ve been waiting for someone to tell me how to format my book. I was actually in the bathroom thinking about it, and realized even if someone gave me the answer, it wouldn’t be good enough. This is MY book, so whatever suggestion they had wouldn’t work, because it wouldn’t be the way I wanted it. Solution? Make coffee. Close Internet. WRITE!
And that’s what I did. I had some short answers written down, but I embellished them and kept writing for awhile. I now have 1,287 words for my book, and that’s barely covering a percentage of it. I think I’m going to take a break for right now, but I wanted to let you all know I think I’m finally on track to get it done!
I’m feeling much better about it, and I’m getting excited about it again because I think I know the way I want it to flow and be formatted. I wrote a beginning paragraph that I was going to post and see what you all thought, but I’m thinking I might change it. If I ever get something down I’ll let you read it though. 🙂 Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop; I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
