The Lackluster Finish

I was really hoping to be able to make a sizeable dent in the bonus round this year.  That’s what I call any amount of words over 50,000.  I’ve never been able to write more than a few hundred words in the bonus round, which is a bit disappointing to me.  Heck, I even looked at a calendar, and picked my “from the trenches” day specifically so I could nab the 30th and talk about the bonus round.

Come the end of the month, and it turns out I had to “cheat” and go rebel just to get anywhere close to finishing the 50k, let alone writing inside of the bonus round.

Life.  What can you do?

Maybe next year.

Neil Siemers grew up in Derby, Kansas, a comparatively small town south of Wichita. He moved to Lawrence to attend the University of Kansas, and hasn't left since. Neil likes to pretend that he is a big shot full time writer, although it's probably closer to a hobby. Either way, it's funded by a full-time job in the insurance industry, where he happily works as a cog in the machine for The Man so that bills can be paid.
