Final Twenty Time Reflection

It’s so weird to me that our twenty time projects are over, and so is the school year. I put so much time and effort into it, and now we are done. I’m not going to lie, I absolutely loved the twenty time projects. The whole idea seemed so exciting to me the first time it was introduced, and now that I’ve done it, I can honestly say that it has helped me and bettered me in so many ways. I looked forward to every day seven, and I even loved writing the blog posts about what I was doing, even though they probably only made sense to just me since I was the only one that knew what I was talking talking about. I admit, remembering some of the blog posts and getting them in on time was a bit challenging, especially when I was out sick, but I did my best to stay on top of them. I learned that, no matter how far fetched my goals may seem and how little time I may have, that’s no excuse to lose motivation. I might have only had a year to write three over-100,000 word books and edit them to perfection, and I might not have gotten close to achieving this goal, but I kept going and I tried as hard as I could. Even when I knew there was no possible way that I was going to finish all of them, I still kept going and didn’t lose interest in what I was doing. From my successes, I learned that I get extremely invested and devoted and passionate about what I’m doing, and that that isn’t really a bad thing at all. From my failures, I learned to set more realistic goals for myself, and that not everything will work out on the first attempt. I know that I will remember most of the stories behind where many of my ideas for the book came from, and when I go back and read what I’ve written, I’ll remember my thought process and the songs I was listening to during particular scenes. I may not have finished all three books and I might still have a long way to go with them, but I’m very proud of the fact that I have made it this far and that these books are A MILLION TIMES BETTER than I ever thought they would be. I’m so proud that this started as a little idea that just came into my head one day a few years ago, an idea that is completely different from the books that I have written now, and that it has morphed into this big part of my life that I really enjoy. I know that I’m going to keep writing until I finished them, because I have devoted so much to them already, that there is no way I am going to give up on them now that the twenty time projects are over.
