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.
