Hello out there!! I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but I have been posting for various communities, and lurking for everything else, so yeah, I've been around. :)
Lots has been going on in my life, with school taking up the majority of my time. The winter semester has just ended so I can take a breather for a bit... well at least from homework assignments. I had a creative writing class and a business communication class, which meant an awful lot of writing. The good news is that the stories and poems I wrote for the creative writing class gave me a decent word count for the getyourwordsout
challenge. And the poems I was required to write gave me a better insight on writing in that medium. I still suck at poetry, but at least I have an insight on how to write the stuff. :) There's a lot to be said for writing freestyle poetry. There are no rules, just use poetic metaphors and you're all set.
Yeah. Did I tell you that I still suck at poetry? :)
Anyway, I also now have quite a few more original stories to add to my portfolio, and have possibly broken through the wall I had built up that was keeping me from writing a whole lot. With that said, I hope to be able to get some fandom writings in.
I'm off for the summer, then will disappear during the fall semester again because I've enrolled in a writing intensive English class, as well as a Lit class which usually means a lot of writing all by itself, and I'm still working full time, so I'll be pretty busy. Actually, I've taken all of the University requirements already (except the math component which I'm putting off as long as possible, thank you very much), and am now working solely on the core courses needed for my creative writing major, so every class I take from now on will require a lot of writing. Stressful, but fortunately I like to write. :)
And there's no sense in not writing anything during the summer. I need to keep up the momentum, right? het_bigbang
challenge starts tomorrow (YAY!!!) so maybe I will actually finish a story I start for that challenge. I did finish a story for the first year it rolled around, but nothing since, so this year is a good time to get one done. ... I hope. ... *crosses fingers*
Also in fandom related news - I have completely finished all 10 seasons of Supernatural (twice!) and part of the 11th season. I missed a few of the earlier episodes in that season, although I did watch the first two, and everything from episode 9 to present, but I'm still asking myself why I waited so long to start watching that show. Hee! For those who haven't started it, take my advice and GET STARTED ALREADY! :) All of the first 10 seasons are on Netflix, so go for it!! It is definitely a fantastic series and I'm looking forward to next season all ready. :D
Everything else in my life is going well. We have a high school graduation to attend next month, which of course is making me feel old. It wasn't that long ago when I was cradling that kid when he was a baby. Now he's way taller than me, and talking about joining the military. SMH Time flies, I know, but seriously, not so fast, okay?
His sister on the other hand, has two more years to go... that is if she can get her grades up so that she can graduate. I have faith in her though. At least I hope she'll make it. :)
So, what's up with you all? Hope things are going well!!!
