Going back to school always hits hard

I would have blogged yesterday, but I as a couple of you may know, I was up literally all night with no sleep trying to complete much-should've-done homework. Likewise, I was unable to get any writing done on Aundes Aura.

Luckily, I am up to a "good part", so when I sat down today with the intention of writing 200+ for today, as well as 200+ to make up for yesterday, the words came easily. My overall aim was thus for 400+ for the night.

400+ was quite the understatement.

I wrote 719 words in one session. I wrote for 20 minutes using Wod, but apart from that it was all MS Word.

I believe I said I wanted chapter two to be somewhere between 3,000 and 3,500 words. If I were to die for going outside that range, I would be quite dead right now. The chapter's current count is 4,423, and it's not quite finished.

Is that too big a leap from Chapter One's 2,800 words?

If you would kindly look at the Aundes Aura progress meter in my sidebar, you will notice it's looking much, much friendlier!

Yay for the epic writing session! Some days it just flows like that. :)

How did the all-nighter go? I should have stayed up last night to read a Samuel Beckett play and didn't. So I tried to quickly read it this morning. I am afraid my quiz grade reflected that. :D

On the night, I managed to get the Lit essay on Donne's 'The Flea', but only got about half a page done on my "TKaMB" essay. At school at lunchtime I proceeded to write a further half-page, and in class before the teacher took it up I wrote a sort-of conclusion.

I didn't manage to make any notes on the other poems we were supposed to read, but my teacher didn't seem horribly displeased. I was just glad to hand in my nice, shiny attempt at a poetry analysis essay.
