Writing like crazy
My wife and I had a great time in Chicago celebrating my birthday with my brother and sister. Chicago has some unbelievable restaurants. The food was amazing! The weather was cold, but it wasn't that bad. I was able to see my first glimpse of snow in over three years. I can't wait to get back. We will be going back this summer for a couple weeks.
Since I got back from Chicago, I have been writing up a storm. I'd say I'm about 3/4 of the way done with the first draft. I wrote a chapter today about the day I graduated from Western Michigan University. My graduation day was a bittersweet day. I achieved a very important goal and it was a special moment, but it was tough because my mom wasn't there to watch me. I know that she was watching down on me from a better place though.
The next couple chapters will consist of my move to Florida and what transpired after I moved. There were definitely a lot of ups and downs. I can't wait to get these chapters done. Hopefully in the next week, I will be done with the first draft. Thanks for listening and I look forward to any comments.
