An Entire Month Without Blogging?!

You can always tell how involved I am [with school] when I go an entire month without obsessively posting about something on my blog. In this case it's all been thanks to my amazing classes (more on them later), but especially my writing class. It has been turning me into the writer I never imagined. I thought I was good (perhaps mediocre), but damn has this really shed light on my work! How to make it better, more relatable, focused, etc. My professor has told me how impressed he has been with the stuff I've been turning out, especially when it has come to making "Changing Kathryn" a series of short stories I will eventually turn into a novel Charles-Dickens-style (Oliver Twist).

I'm almost done with Part I: The Metamorphosis. It's will be an estimated 22-25 pages, definitely no more and no less. (It helps this is part of the requirement for my writing class considering this is actually being written for an assignment. How freaking awesome is that?!?!?!) And already I'm starting to contemplate how Part II will go; I want to focus on her new life post-metamorphosis. I'm in debate about titles, meaning I don't know if I should start designating one to it yet. Though there is one I'm considering putting into play: Part II: The Transfer. But my heart isn't quite set on it.

Still though, I'm not going to even begin story boarding part deux until this current one is done.

Happy Blogiversary!

I can't believe that one year ago today I started this blog. I generally don't have the ability to keep with something I start, especially not for this long. I am proud of myself, and it's amazing to see how far I have come as a writer, and as a person. It's a journey I am so grateful to have documented.

My Imaginary Friends Are Incommunicado

In short: it's hot outside and as a result I'm sleepy and have writer's block. I'm going to have to go home and play around with writing ideas because I have none. And I'm upset. I don't think any amount of writing on my blog will fix this right now. Not to mention I have a class in 30 minutes. Maybe my discussion [class] on psychoactive drugs will spark an idea? I know my astronomy class has certainly given me new ways to think about world building!

Wish me luck, ya'll!

I am very VERY serious when I say I want to start a summer-time writing/art mag (The Creative Coast) so PLEASE let me know if you are interested in helping me get started for this. Whether you want to be an editor, organizer, planner, or a submitter DO NOT hesitate to contact me. There is very likely chance this won't be for just sheer volunteer work but could very well wind up as a chance for me to pay you to help me. I will NOT guarantee this just yet as I need to start a fund for this project n order for a payment plan to be settled and determined, but if you are at all interested PLEASE contact me. And if you know of anyone who might be interested, tell them all about this.

Thank you!!!

A Highlight of Today's Events

So I got to try kava in class. It tastes like watery grass--which sounds freaking terrible, I know. But it was not as horrible as I'm making it sound, believe me. (Or don't. Try it for yourself!) I also finished writing up an abstract for my anthropology (on psychoactive drugs) class, AND with time to spare! As a result I started cleaning up my blog a little bit. There aren't noticeable changes, I'm sure. But they're there if you look for them (i.e. all located in the sidebar). #gome
