So this weekend (starting tomorrow for me, I'll explain later, but anyways, whoop, whoop!) is Easter weekend. I'm not Christian so I don't really celebrate Easter as anything to do with Christ. I do, however, love me a good Easter egg hunt. Or just the chocolate--either works.
As I mentioned, Easter weekend starts tomorrow (Thursday). This is because tomorrow is a NID (Non Instructional Day) at my school. Then there's Good Friday (or very good ^^), the actual weekend, followed by Easter Monday.
If you've been keeping track, counting on your fingers, or care at all, you may have reached the same eager conclusion that helped get me through Socials, French, Band, Math, etc.
5 day weekend!!!
Anyways, to mark such a truly momentous occasion, I've decided to make this weekend into a bit of an even for myself. Rather than just "Lie Around the House for 5 Days Straight" like I would normally consider doing, I'm rather motivated and am making Easter weekend 2010 "Erika's Epic Easter Write-a-thon"!
I have this crazy schedule all worked out. It basically consists of writing, reading books about writing, doing writing exercises, and writing some more. Oh, and food. Right... On a side note, Friday is my name day, which calls for one thing and one thing only: cake!
Just to keep it real, I'm going to toss in a goal or two. I wanted to manage at least three pages a day, for a grand total (I'm not doing my write-a-thon Sunday or Monday because of school work and, you guessed it, an Easter egg hunt :) Never too old) of about ten pages. That's over 3 times as many as I would probably do on a normal, day-to-day basis. Plus I'm hoping to start some snazzy new stories and try out a few writing prompts/exercises that I've been putting off.
Okay, I realize that this is probably not interesting at all for anyone else, but personally, I'm totally geeking out!
Wish me luck, oh Writer Gods,
PS: As a side note, K and I did some lettering for our school Concert Band's t-shirts, and they're going to be part of the design! Woot! The main design is like evolution, from primate to caveman to person to BAND GEEK! And the color? It's teal, "Like Kiyle's hat". Good day :)
