All work and no play…


Essay writing makes actual writing boring…or in my case it has taken the fun out of creative writing! In one class I have written 4 essay’s, with one more to go. In another class I have written one small essay with a much bigger one due at the end of this month. In another class I have written one rough draft essay and ten small essays. And my fourth class, I’m lucky to not have written any essays, just some small writing pieces to turn in for homework.

Even though I have written all of these essays, I still try to continue working on my manuscript…whenever I find the time. It normally takes me a little longer to accomplish this as it seems more like a task now.

I have five chapters left to work on and hope to have it finished before the end of this semester. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can find the motivation to push forward.      

First week done


The first week of school went by with some success. We had another ice storm come through that postponed and canceled classes. Even though Tuesday was the actually day of bad weather, I had missed classes all day from my own self-ignorance on how to read my own class schedule. I had to laugh out loud when it was pointed out to me. I felt awkward showing up to class on Thursday and the teacher asked for us to turn in our homework. My eyes got real big and I felt awkward. Had I missed something? Was this in an email that I should’ve checked and hadn’t? I finally asked. This class, as well as the other classes I have on Thursday, is also held on Tuesday.

Since Tuesday and Thursday both start with “T’s” they use “TR” for Thursday on a class schedule or an “R”. I had “TR” on my schedule, which meant I had these classes on both Tuesday and Thursday; I thought they were Thursday only classes. I had never taken class on Tuesday’s or Thursday’s, so you could see my confusion. No matter, I got it cleared up and am planning on being on time and in class on Tuesday.

My week looks busy Monday through Thursday and I am already enjoying the classes that I have signed up for. I’ll have a lot of writing to do and I’m told I’ll have quite a few essays to write as well. Though some students may not like writing essay, I’m the opposite, I actually like them. They help me work on my writing skills. I’m not a great writer, I’ll always make mistakes, it is now that I am in school that I can find these mistakes and learn how to fix them.

Since there are quite a few writing prompts in my classes, I’ll be sharing them with you all. So, look forward to reading about what I’m doing in Cultural Anthropology, Beginning Journalism, English Comp II, and Creative Writing.
