Weekly Writing Update 2: The Brakes of Life

This Week's Word Count: 1,563
Total Current Word Count: 31,815

It's time for another weekly update, and it's a rough one. I didn't make a blog post during the weekend solely because I had nothing to talk about. I am still recovering from a very bad viral cold, and I'm a lazy bastard.

Another issue is all the work I have to do this semester. It's different from my usual workload, as it isn't computations and coding. This semester is mostly reading (History-related) and writing papers. I dedicate my time to homework over hobby right now, which means my writing falls to the wayside sometimes.

The biggest problem I'm having is a lack of motivation. After plotting out the novel, things have definitely slowed down. The semester has started and I've grown bored of the story. I will not let this stop me from finishing, as that's the most important part. I've also had an idea for another novel, but I need to prove that I can finish one before I start another.

My goal this coming week is to beat the previous week, getting to at least 2,000 words. I have two different, consecutive chapters I am bouncing between writing. I want them to be completely finished, which will probably exceed 2,000 words by a lot. This weekend I want to get ahead on my homework and my writing.

I will not give up! If anything, I'll re-outline the novel and continue from the point I'm at. The beginning is getting massively edited anyway. See you guys again next week!
