Alright. I'm gonna take a deeeeeeeeeeeep breath before I formally decide this.
Okay. I can do this.
I think I can do this.
Here it is: I'm going to finish my novel by August 28. There, I've said it. Scary.
Why August 28 you wonder? Well, that's when I go to college. Also, I've been working on this novel on and off for two years now and haven't even finished the first draft. Yes, I've been editing it along the way, but that needs to stop. I must have some form of completeness.
Anyways, in other non-scary news, I barely walked out of the bookstore alive yesterday.
Wait, that does sound scary.
I'll explain. You see, I didn't plan on going into the bookstore yesterday, but when I did, I couldn't stop myself from picking up seven different books and wanting to buy all of them. This is a problem because I can't afford to buy so many books, especially hardback. After much decision making, I eventually purchased The Book Thief and Looking for Alaska. Hopefully these are good books. Otherwise, I might cry.
Oh, also while in the bookstore, I took the liberty of pretending I have a published book. I went to the YA section and looked for the "I"s and found that my book would be between A Company of Swans by Emma Ibbotson and Voss by David Ives.
This, in addition to my new goal, is nervous-making because I've never heard of these books/authors, and a key phrase from Voss is gray fedora.
