I can’t believe I actually managed to send off my AIF submission on time, after reaching 81k words on the novel. It gives me hope because it means I can commit to the discipline of writing novels, something I struggled with due to my tendency to procrastinate!
My best friend send me this link about procrastination…which I should really open and read one of these days.
Still I’m feeling an incredible buzz for getting so far. My novel Malaysian Dark, almost done! I can see the end in sight, and even the ending has already been written. Now I just need to finish the scenes leading up to the climax. Heck, I’ve already been thinking of ways to revise and polish the novel – scenes I should add to give context and meaning – which is a good sign.
Can’t wait to get started on the writing. But I need to finish some other writing-related commitments which might(!) earn some income. That and another job application is due in early June.
Last week I already sent an application for a bookseller position at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Am a bit worried have yet to hear a reply because interviews were supposed to have started from May 22 until early June. I even sent the application early. Ah well, have to remain upbeat.
It also seems like I might have to suddenly fly to the St Albans area within the next week. What a time for the Iceland volcano to erupt! Life, always amusing, never dull.
Wow. Suddenly am feeling a wee bit frazzled. *goes to play a game*
