so my actual book and project is done.
On thursday I have my presentation…. lets see how that goes…
Yes you read right….. I AM DOOOOOONEEEEEEE
Honestly, I can’t believe it! The only thing that is left now is to look over it once again and then PRINT IT!!!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Next Stop: Staples Bridge Hampton
I BEGAN TO PEPARE MY PRESENTATION!!!!
That is soooo …. I don’t know what it is!!! But it is a good feeling! Now the countdown is on for real. Today is may 9th and in two/ three weeks its time for me to present… my rule now is KEEP CALM AND DO EVERYTHING STEP BY STEP.
My next step is to check if the chapters are in the right order.
I set myself a deadline by when I have to have my book ready to print. May 8!!! One week! One week to get everything done and ready for the printer! I am very confident that I will be ready by then.
So now my next step is to put the rest of the pics in, captions, copy the last five or so chapters in and then I can SEND IT OFF!!!!!!!
I didn’t tell you what I did in Germany yet, right? My mom edited my chapters that I send her. And we chose PICTURES to put in my book. Now I am almost done!!!!!
Formatting is done. Now I only have to put the pictures in and write the captions and send it off.
On Friday I will do my cover picture!!!
Lets see how it goes…
It’s incredible! 2 Months! 2!
That is how much time I have left until Graduation. I am trying too get everything done before those 2 months are over!
THE FINAL SPURT HAS BEGAN!!!!!
11 DAYS TILL GERMANY!!!! Counting down…
First week of school after mterm. Where is the time???
I am so afraid that I will not be able to finish on time… yes I wrote all my pieces, but I need to edit them and they have to be read through and all that… I really wish that I will have a bound book by the time I present. That’s what I’m aiming for, but who knows…
I cannot believe it is already third week of Mterm! My first draft is done… lets see how it continues…
today was Meg’s Baby shower. Was very cute and made me want a baby!!! But I have to wait a little longer…
My Book is making good progress!!! I have written all the main parts, only four more to go!
But thats for tomorrow!
M-term is here!!! That means Write, write and write!!!
Today I was planing with meg and lisa. Now I know what to do every day at school and at home. What I don’t really get, because I did my planing already with marina this weekend!
talk to you tomorrow!
this was a long weekend, because we had Presidents day. And I did a lot of planning. Next week is M-Term and I had to plan three weeks!!!!!!! It’s not that easy as I thought it would be.
Actually, I thought that I was pretty much done, but as I was sitting down with Marina we figured out that there are still 30 stories/ pieces to write!
Now, I know that this is a high goal, but I think that if I stick to the plan we did, (2 stories per day), I will be able to manage it. I still have to talk to Lisa and Kerrie about it though.
on thursday I met with Kerrie and we talked about my of course, what else? I was telling that I don’t really know what to do, because I still have soooo many that I want to tell, but time is running away and may is on its way (wow, that actually rimed). So she said that I could do my senior project and then, when I have time after school and college maybe I can edit the book and publish a 2nd edition and so on and so forth. “Because you are writing a memoir and it is the story of your live. And your live is still going on after high school. so you can write on, if you want to!” (Kerrie)
We also talked about the letters that I want to include in my book. Originally I wanted to write a to my fantasies and Kerrie thought that this was a good idea, she said that she would find it very good if I also write a to my parents. When Saskia heard this she told me that she had this in mind, but didn’t want to influence me to much. So now, be ready for my
snow days to write on your senior project right? I wrote pages. Now I know that is not much, but I also talked to my dad so he could clarify some things to me. I recorded it and than wrote it down with Marinas help.
And I wrote for another chapter, this looks something like this:
In this chapter I talked about my primary school…
You know, while i was writing it I thought how great it would be if I did a class reunion when I am in germany in springbreak!
Happy new year for all of you!! I was in washington DC for 5 nights in the break other than that I got a lot of writing done!!! Time is going by soo fast!!! I hope I will get done on time!!! I think I’m doing fine… in fact I know so 🙂
