Okay, I suck. Big time. This was supposed to be posted on the sixth, and even though I'm fudging the date so as not to mess up anyone else, I'm late on my blog. Seems like I've been late to everything lately. :(
Why is Cassandra frazzled? The evil day job is a huge factor. May's one of the worst months to be a teacher, what with end of the year stuff, meetings, paperwork to finish, and crazy behavior from previously normal sixth and seventh graders.
Another thing that's been driving me insane lately is my lack of inspiration writing-wise. I wasn't making any headway trying to fix that problem on my own, so I decided to give myself a bit of a kick-start. I signed up for the Novella in a Month Challenge over at CataUniversity. Basically, during the month of May I have to write 25,000 words. So far I've managed just over 4,100, which is better than I've been doing lately without the looming deadline and the encouragement of the other participants.
I'm going crazy with all the stuff that's going on, but my writing seems to be going better. I don't know if signing up for the challenge was genius, or insane. What do you all think? ;) You can follow my progress at my Myspace blog: http://www.myspace.com/cassandragold
