Today wasn't the best of days.
My car started steaming again - that's right, again. It likes to do this thing where it starts steaming and all the coolant spills out the bottom. Looks like I'm on foot from now on.
But that's alright, I like walking anyway. I hate being bound by cars - public transportation is so much better.
Or I can find another means of transportation...
I'm still grateful that nothing worse happened; there was a three-car accident near me when my car was being towed, and I was glad that I wasn't a part of that mess. I guess there's a good side to everything.
Let's talk about milestones. Today is one. Day 20. Only 70 days left to complete my goal. Now, will I actually have a complete first draft in 70 days? Time can only tell. But I'm going to try as hard as I can to get as far as I can.
- I am still in the first chapter phase. I've written a couple of possible beginnings, so I'm just trying to be content with the ideas I currently have.
- Every day I get a new idea, and I am inspired to do research to motivate my ideas further. Remember, there's nothing wrong with being influenced by an existing thing.
- I have over 2000 words written. Now, there's something!
Here's to hoping I can progress a little faster. But at least I'm enjoying my time working on this. Which is all that matters, really.
And now for my Random Fact of the Day:
Not only is Loki the father of a wolf, he is also a mother.
Hooray for challenging society's pre-conceived notions of family! Mother-dads rock!
See you tomorrow!
