New Semester

Yay for inauguration day! I was very happy to be cuddled up in bed to watch President Obama take the oath of office.

So... my first class of the second semester starts in a few hours. I have yet to decide if I'm excited for this semester or not. I feel like I'm leaning toward the "not" for some reason. Probably because I didn't write very much during the break like I had planned. Another goal failed. Well... maybe not, I did write ten pages, so that's something. I think I need the pressure of the program to actually work on things. Anyway... one class today and two more classes tomorrow and then my school week is done.

We'll see if my excitement for this semester perks later. Maybe it will if I can sell my stupid grammar books back today.

I know what you mean. I need the structure of school to keep me writing, too.

I hope the excitement sneaks up on you!

Eileen... I've been told for the past semester that I should be shooting for 10-15 page stories. I can't even imagine how people do that and do it well. I just need to get out of this funky mindset that I have.

You are amazing. I don't even feel like this semester is real yet. Everything feels a little surreal. Like maybe I actually DID graduate with Sara and Jessie but don't realize it yet. That's how I FEEL.

True ... the last story I turned in was 18 and needs probably 6-8 pages more. The only thing that saves it from being a monster is an abundance of dialog.

Back already?!? Man, I wish I was back. My semester doesn't start until February 7. That feels so far away. So. Far. Away.
