I got to 21,000 words today so I hit my initial 20k break. I didn't get any work done but I enjoyed some time with my friends.

Tomorrow and Monday are about working and writing.

Non-fiction is harder. There are so many memories and I like using details in my scenes. It's stream-or-consciousness, so it's easier to rack up words in that respect, but it's first-person present-tense (AKA writing as I was in that age) so I can't really add any present knowledge. Makes it difficult given I have the urge to add my current humour to the situations.

I wonder if I'll continue this past 50k or if I'll decide that my high school memories are better off in my head or in a list to jog them. Who knows. I think I'll feel a little better having some of them down in story form for me to read later in life. High school was an important time for me, more important than university in some respects. I grew into myself in the face of great adversity and made difficult choices for myself that went against the grain and what people expected. University, not so much - I am pretty much the person people expect, once they get to know me. I formed this person in high school.

I wrote a song today when I had too much floating around in my head. I don't generally think like this, but the moment got to me. The title is silly because I enjoy alliteration and strange titles. As usual I'll probably change the end. I really need to stop writing songs until I work out the chord progressions to the ones I've already written.
