Following up on this
entry, I wanted to give everyone a TL;DR about the first week of my March challenge.
The first week has been a wonderful success; I am actually AHEAD of schedule, if you can believe it (I know, it really floored me, too); I sent my email with some of my progress to the Husband Unit (I say some because I write a lot of stuff down before typing it up; plus I have one entire notebook full of notes and scenes already written) and tonight I am going to celebrate a little bit and then crash early because I have an opening shift.
I will hopefully have an afternoon/night to spend on Gaia in the upcoming week; my work schedule has been a little crazy and I have spent all the downtime that I have had to do with on making sure I made as much progress as possible this first week. I knew if I had a good start it would make all the difference and so far, so very good.
I don't have the words for this feeling, guys. These past nine days have been amazing. It's beyond my ability to describe how it feels to really give it my all and feel the story flow; removing as much stress as possible from my life and giving myself the chance to introvert and write it all out has already made a huge weight fall off my shoulders. This feels so, so, so beyond good. I have never needed confirmation that being a writer was for me but IF I needed one these past few days would be it.
Another update next week. More progress to be made!
