Week 2

Well, that didn’t go so well. I adjusted the week’s goals down one day because we had Regional Campuses Faculty Senate Friday, which meant four hours driving to get to the Salkehatchie campus at Allendale, plus the six hour meeting, plus Will’s last Cub Scout Pack Celebration before he crosses over to the Boy Scout Troop. Awards plus the Raingutter Regatta races for the little boat he built last week meant the Pack Celebration would probably be at least an hour and a half, maybe two. So I think anybody who has twelve hours of unavailable obligations should get the day off from writing. Because, shoot, writing is HARD.

But then Laura got sick and I had to drive to Greenville to pick her up and take her to two different doctor appointments. And I had Senate prep and grading rewrites for my 102 class. I’ve been on the phone a lot with the insurance company trying to get my car fixed after somebody bashed in my bumper in the parking lot. Essentially just a whole lot going on.

So I did meet my time goal for the week, but waaaay down on the word count. Still I managed to write a little over four pages with all that going on, so I guess that’s something. It’d sure be nice if I felt that I’d actually written anything good in those four pages! It’ll come together if I keep working at it, I know, but wow, that eight-word day was a bummer.
