Stretching Home

Posted by Eric Westerlind (Creator)

113 pages to go. 

12 days left in February. I'm counting today, because it's still yesterday.

113/12 = 9.4167repeating pages per day to finish the book, turn it in, March 1.

I wrote 2.5 today. 


But I started at 11 30 and it's 1, so the fire is there, because, get this:

Let's say I were awake fourteen hours a day and I could write for all of them except hours when I'm eating tofu (about one, per day). So thirteen, my lucky number. (—not. it's nine).

2.5 pgs / 1.5 hrs = 1.66pg/hr
12 days * 13hrs = 156hrs 
156hrs * 1.66pgs = 258.96pgs

So. 

It's entirely, physically possible to eat tofu one hour per day and finish this book by March 1st. In fact I'll have:

(258.96pgs - 113pgs)/258.96pgs = 56.36% of my time left to spare. 

I know what you're thinking. 

Where did this boy get so good at math?

Mrs. Blanchard's class at Centennial Middle. 

She liked Magic: the Gathering. 

I paid attention because, Here's an adult who understands the simpler things, I thought. 

Her name's in the book.
Respect, Mrs. Blanchard, you old charlie.

It's weird I just want to take pictures of things on my desk and send you them? 

If weird = exhibitionistic, yes. 

This is my new sewing machine.

This pictures shows you that on the 25th, I'm going to go back to the Island for three days to try to finish the book where I started it.

It's not worth being scared.

I think I said that four times today, interior monologue.

Each time I had to figure out what I was scared of first. Then I did it.

Made for a damn good day, tell you what.

Here's my current hottraklist:

Troye Sivan - My My My
Daniel Caesar - Get You
The Weeknd - I Feel It Coming*
Childish Gambino - Sober
The 1975 - Robbers

And then the entire album Ctrl by SZA and Wild is the Wind by Nina Simone. Those I don't do in parts.




Final countdown, folks!

Let's do this.
