Lack of progress report

Well, September's already more than half over. (what?!) Let's check in and see how much progress I haven't made towards my September goals!!

Finish the second draft of the novel. Okay, so if you don't count a short part of Chapter 11 that I haven't been able to finish for various reasons, I only have chapters 13, 14 and 15 left to edit! I even have Chapter 13 pulled up in Chrome right now, because I was going to work on it, but gdocs is being a problem. Whatever, webertubes! It's not like I was going to be productive tonight or anything.
In any case, I might actually be able to finish the second draft by the end of the month. Of course, I'm not done. Haha, no. I am planning on doing a whole ton of additional editing once the second draft is complete. YAY!

Read a novel about vampires and a novel about something else. I totally haven't read anything; I've been drawing and playing videogames in my leisure time. Oh no!!

Get back in the habit of doing morning pages. I was actually doing this regularly for a while, but then my husband's car decided it needed to spend three weeks at the shop, so now I get to drive him in to work every morning. I haven't been able to work up the motivation to wake up early just to do morning pages, sleep being one of my only sources of solace in this sick sad world. (Just kidding. I just really love sleeping, and I'm lazy! tee hee!)

Work hard on choreography at least 3x a week for at least 2 hours at a time. Uhhhh.... I did choreograph something! I have about... a minute... of rough choreography... Okay so I haven't been keeping up with this goal at all, maybe because it's totally unrealistic.

Write a damn pitch for the book. ...yeah. I have to be honest-- this isn't going to happen.

Keep blogging regularly. I shared all kinds of depressing facts about myself and also some other things! Mission Accomplished!! YESS

To be fair, I've been trying hard to accomplish some real life goals as well (things too boring to chronicle here), and they've been taking precedence over some of these creativity type things, so I don't actually feel too bad about myself.

As my sister says, "you gives some, you takes some".

*sigh* So true.
