Yesterday, as you may already know if you read my previous post, I finished chapter eight on one of my novels. A few days prior to that I finished preliminary edits on my still-unfinished novel from NaNoWriMo last fall. I’ll have to completely retype this last one, since my MacBook decided to make the original file disappear, but that’s okay.
Something that made my day was hearing “You’re a very strong writer, Kerri” from my advisor. Given that the last three months have been spent doing little but crying and wanting to sleep, this news is a big motivator for me. Things are slowly, but surely getting better, I think.
I’m back at a place where I can write, and that in itself, is a huge step for me. Summer classes begin in a few weeks, but I’m going to try to budget my time a little better this year so I can continually work on my thesis while completing my summer classwork.
Hearing that from my advisor, though…
It’s the little things, you know?
