Crack Down

I've been pretty lax on these dang posts. It's a little annoying. I just get so caught up in everything else that blogging disappears on me. So, I've decided a schedule. Every Tuesday and Thursday from now on, there'll be a post. Can't guarantee anything other than that. :P

Back in January I made a goal to finish the first draft of my manuscript by my birthday. Seven months later, and a month and a half to go, I'm still working on it. I'm 21k in, a lovely little feat, and finishing up the 5th chapter. So, in order to keep this goal I've got to buckle down and write around 10k each week. Definitely doable. If I can concentrate.

My inner Snape will be doing this with my imagination for the next six weeks. 

I am determined to get my first draft finished! I'll be able to join the ranks of people who've finished their MS~ And that will be amazing.

Also, have you all seen the last Harry Potter? It was worthy of sending off the best movie series I've ever seen. And once I get my copy of Deathly Hallows returned to me, I will be commemorating by reading the entire series for the undisclosed-th amount. :)

Hopefully the lot of you enjoyed it to! What other movies have you guys seen recently, or want to see that haven't come out yet? Or any must-see movie recs? I've been wanting to expand my movie knowledge.
