Wow, I dropped the bundle here, quickly!
I have been writing a lot the past couple of weeks, but it hasn’t been on the novella, it’s all been university focused.
- 1600 word analysis
- 2600 word speech
- 1000 word presentation
- 1400 word essay
- Two days back at my placement school
I’ve only to 3.5 weeks left of this semester, and then it’s blessed, blessed freedom. Next year I’ll only be at uni part-time, and I anticipate my work load being MUCH more manageable. This year I’ve had 6 subjects per semester, next year it will only be 2… 4 essays/assignments per semester instead of the 20 (no joke) I’ve had this semester.
Upcoming in the next 3.5 weeks is:
- 1 quiz
- 1600 word essay on ICT
- 2 presentations (History & Hums)
- 1500 word essay (Hums)
- 2600 word learning inquiry report (Hums)
- 1400 word analysis of practice (History)
- 2000 word essay (English Teaching Method)
- 1200 reflective report (Assessment)
I think that’s it?
Anyway. Busy few weeks. I don’t really anticipate a lot of fiction writing getting done while I have all of this to get through, but I’ll try to get some done.
I don’t seem to do very well at trying to snatch 5 – 10 free minutes and getting even 100 words down. I need to sit down and have a good solid few hours ahead of me to sink into the story, without the guilt of “you really should be working on that essay that’s due tonight/tomorrow/yesterday” hanging over my head.
In publishing news, I’m only 9 sales off hitting the 500 sold milestone! So, with the ~2000 odd copies I gave away during freebie runs early last year, there are around 2500 copies of my stories out there.
