Here I am just discussing some details about what I am going to do for my product with my facilitator. We went to a Starbucks to get some coffee and make a plan of action as far as the type of book I’ll write as well as the means of which I plan to turn my written work into a format of which I can present to the judges.
I am grateful my project facilitator has connections with a company that can make the book into a format that I can present to the Judges. I will be limited as to how many pages I can have but I’m okay with that. I found out I could also try to get more pages for me to work with if I choose not to illustrate it and use those pages as more room to write with. It’s also a huge relief that my book might not actually be officially published so therefore I won’t have to worry about the embarrassment of other people being able to read my work.

This is me sitting down and asking questions with my mother about my childhood. I am doing because autism is going to be a major element of the book I want to write. I was diagnosed with autism as a small child so I thought that it could serve as a base for what I'll write my story about.
I was very surprised to hear about how my mother reacted to the various situations she encountered that surrounded my diagnoses. I expected her to be more afraid and worried than she actually was. I've gained more insight into my own past and plan to apply that into my writing for the future.

Today I decided to sit down and spend a little bit of time trying to sit down and make a little progress with senior project. Here I am sitting down typing a bit of the book that I plan to use as my Product for senior project on my MacBook.
While working on the project I found it rather difficult to think of how it is I want to say what I have to say. I already talked to mother as to some information about my childhood so I have something to write about. I knew what to write about I just struggled to find the right words to describe it. As a result I felt like I didn’t make all that significant of progress.

Here I am typing on my computer to have something worth showing to my project facilitator as I arranged to meet with her tomorrow.
In this I feel rushed as I agreed to meet with her tomorrow and feel a bit pressured to have some level of progress worth showing to her.

Here my project Facilitator is looking over my work and making comments for things I should edit later. We also discussed small details of things I should do for the future pertaining to the limited amount of pages I will have available to me in the final product.
I like finally being able to see the changes I need to make as it was a concern I've had when working on the project, which I found to be relieving. I also didn't know about that the simple common things I write when I type are actually not grammatically correct, which I found to be rather eye opening.

In this picture I decided to spend my time wisely in TAA and went through the work I’ve done so far and making edits to it based on the comments that was left by my project facilitator. I am also being a bit progressive by writing bit more.
I feel enjoyed being able to go back through and smooth out the rough edges of my work. There were times I felt conflicted about some of the changes my project facilitator asked to make as I don’t want to give the wrong impression about some of the characters with the selection of certain details. I might have to discuss some of them with my project facilitator.

Here I am at my mother’s office and decided to use my free time to make as much progress towards finishing the book as possible during whatever free time I had when I wasn’t doing work around the office.
While I am slightly worried about getting my minimum of 15 hours in time, I’m glad I am making the time to sit down and progress toward finishing my book. I’ve also hit the point in the story where I’m discussing things I am able to remember rather than the life experiences that my mother described when I was little. I feels somewhat nostalgic towards these distant childhood memories that I have not thought about in a long time.

After coming home from working in my mother’s office I decided to spend a little time wrapping up my thoughts from earlier. The day after, I am at my mothers office once again and am spending this time away from any possible distractions to work towards completing my minimum of 15 hours for senior project.

Today I decided to try to finish up as much of the book as I can. Throughout the time I spent writing I was struggling with a bit of writer's block so a lot of the time It seemed like I would just write something only to erase it because it didn’t feel right or I didn’t like the wording of it.
I’m a little worried that all the hours that I’m logging are a bit repetitive at this point. I know I have to talk with a ninja about that.
As mentioned before I was struggling with a bit of writer’s block which made me feel frustrated that I could never say things the way I wanted to. It makes me worried that I might not get the full 15 hours done if I have it again next time I write.

Today I decided to finish up the last 3 hours I needed for the minimum of 15 hours. Luckily I wasn’t struggling with writer’s block nearly as badly as I was before. I’ve also started to hit the point in the book where I need to make up certain events to make there be more of a plot to it and thus am starting to stray away from some of the events from my own life.
I’m relieved that I managed to hit the minimum of 15 hours in time. Though I’m still worried about the other stuff for senior project like the facilitator bio and the letter to the judges as I realized recently that the portfolio includes more than just the pictorial log. Since I’ve started to write about more fictional events rather than things that actually happened in my life, I started to feel a bit of a difference between the protagonist and myself which I found odd as he is based off of myself.

(1 hour and 30 minutes)
Today I decided to finish up the last of the writing that I needed to do in order to be completely finished with my book. After finishing the ending of the book, I also was able to get in touch with my facilitator who made edits for me to go back and correct to smooth out the rough edges of the book. All that is left is to wait for my facilitator to send my work to the publishing company to have it converted into a proper book form.
I feel relieved in the fact that I’m finally finished writing the book. I’m also rather content with the way things ended and am somewhat satisfied with my writing which has been unusual as for the most part I have felt discontent with my work. I’m now anxiously waiting to actually see what the book will look like. Though I’d still prefer to not have anybody else read it as It’s become rather personal to me. I’ve poured into a lot of my own private feelings and emotions into this and as a result it would feel a bit like invasion of my privacy. I request that whomever the judge is that reads my pictorial log only asks to see my product instead of actually reading it.
