I’m on a Roll
Rewrites for Beacon: Book 2 in the Ronos Trilogy have been going awesome the last few days. Last week I got a positive review on Amazon and it really got me pumped to do a lot of writing. I’m not close to finishing but I’ve made it through a significant chunk of prose. Unfortunately this new found rewriting gusto is not good for my student life.
I have an essay due on Thursday that I’m not done yet and an analytical review for a book I haven’t read due the same day. I had good intentions of finishing my essay and reading the book this weekend but how could I do that when rewriting was coming so easily?
This morning I sat down and looked through a few more chapters of Beacon before school. Then all the work I needed to do before Thursday donned on me and I realized I wasn’t going to get anything done if I didn’t leave the Beacon binder at home.
Now I’m at school with a couple hours to kill before class and am writing a blog post instead of doing work. I’m a king procrastinator. But in my defence the book I’m supposed to read is about child labor during the British industrial revolution and it’s not as intersting as I thought it would be.
All I want to do now is rewrite. Must. Concentrate. On. School.
The contest to be have a character in Beacon named after you is still going on. All you have to do is write a review of Catalyst. Post it to Amazon or Goodreads to be entered. Also, use the word ‘chortle’ somewhere in the review so that I know it’s for this contest. More details can be found here.
Good luck. I’m going to go back to work. School work.
