Time to Write

Tuesday, March 8th, 2005 • 3 Comments on Time to Write

I’m in the midst of a short story writing/editing frenzy.  I have three stories ready to be sent out, with three more to come by the end of the week; another three or four more by the end of the month.  It’s crunch time in anthology land.  I have a few stories collecting dust, so some of my work has just been editing and polishing those stories for resubmission.  I still have at least three new stories to write.  Maybe the idea fairy will do a drive-by this week.

I need to update my sidebar on what I’m reading for class.  Freud is history and I have a pile of books to slog through over the next several weeks, as well as an essay/review thing to write.  I’m not sure where the time has gone, but it’s already spring break.  The midterm exam was deceptive—one essay, worth 25% of my grade.  That has the potential to go very, very good or very, very bad.  Time will tell.  Until then, I need to start working on my term paper, due at the end of April.  I wonder if there’s a term paper fairy? 

Oh, and please don’t ask me about my good intentions for my NaNoWriMo book.  I’ve done little else but print a hard copy.  I probably should have signed up to participate in NaNoEdMo, but I knew I wouldn’t get it done with everything else I’m working on right now.  I really am writing more so far this year, but it’s still doesn’t feel like enough.  Funny how that works, isn’t it?

Spring isn’t here yet, but it’s coming.  I can feel it.  And it’s going to be a busy one.

    Pretty Bird,

    I’ve missed reading you!

    Good luck on all the editing, and with the submissions. I did a NaNo novel too, and I still haven’t gotten the courage to read it, let alone edit it. I got past 50,000 words, said “Whew!” and set it aside.

    I would much rather write than edit, Amy.  Still, I love the process of creating a novel, which is why I know I’ll go back to it.  Soon, hopefully.
