I am so happy right now like I can't even. It's tomorrow morning, and here's hoping that everything works out because that job would be so great.

Okay so far it's been a pretty good day! Sure, it's early morning over here, but who cares about that? As long as I feel good about myself, it's all good, right? Idk man, whatever.

I feel slightly better about getting Ren's chapter done. I've just been getting anxious because this semester so many people are submitting pieces to be workshopped at a really fast rate. Like Professor Alley opened the first packet the very first day of class. Next class, 20 people have already submitted. Like WHAT THE HELLLLL, this wasn't at all like last semester where it took several days to even just get one or two pieces into that first packet.

People are just really fast in this class, which is the opposite of me, because it takes me a while (typically) to get one chapter done, but then again it all depends on my level of motivation. There have been times where I've been able to get chapters done in one day, but that doesn't happen often. I wish I could go back to getting a chapter done a week, like back at JMU. I had a pretty good system going on back then, it was great. Of course, it's easier said than done since now I make OP graphics, and that takes up some time. Also, I'm still trying to look for a job, bc if I'm going to move into that condo with Miz, I have to REALLY get on the ball.

Well whatever. Professor Alley said to take my time on it. He knows how I write, and he also said he'll let me go ahead and workshop right away as soon as I get my excerpt posted, so that's good. I won't have to wait at least.

Alright ANYWAY. That's enough from me right now, I've gotta finish updating the google docs page for Ren's chapter before class.

I'm going to have to do a follow forever now aren't I? I'll think of something, ahaha

OH and you know what? I just realized something. I can make things SO MUCH EASIER on myself if I just cut out the part with Heng that I originally had planned at the end of Ren's chapter. I mean sure, it'd be pretty cool and interesting to have it, but what I liked about her chapter in the original draft was that I left the chapter open-ended. Like, it kind of ends on a cliffhanger, and you know that something fishy is going on. I should just do that here! And then like during Cho's next chapter, SHE GETS KNOCKED OUT. So that'll add to the suspense!

Shit I think I've got this now. Early morning drives after class sure do help.

If I get so invested into writing one fanfic, then I should be this invested in writing Brotherhood, goddammit. I just don't know. I think the main problem here is that I'm revamping the beginning right now, and it isn't until act 2 that the real shit starts going down. I mean, act 2 is when the main conflict starts, and the main villains show up too. But act 1 is also really fucking important, because it's what happens at the end of act 1 that triggers the rest of the plot. So I have to do act 1!

I think I'm just going to have to motivate myself into writing it. It's just so hard though, ugh... (But luckily it's during the middle of Ren's chapter that shit actually starts happening, and that's the chapter i'm working on right now. So if I can just get to that part, things should really start flowing then I think).
