I ONLY HAVE 4 DAYS OF CLASSES LEFT!!!!!
Woo hoo, huh? I know you guys are probably tired of me harping on this, but I absolutely cannot wait until summer. I mean, I'm excited for all the writing time I'm going to have... but I'm also just excited to relax. Unlike a lot of college students, I don't relax throughout the year by drinking myself silly. Unfortunately, from September until April, I'm busy nonstop. Which brings me to my next point...
I GOT 24/25 ON MY ANTHROPOLOGY TERM PAPER (A+)!!!!
Yay!! Out of the 3 sections taught at my school for this class, I got the highest grade by 4 points! That's right, the next highest mark in 3 classes was 20/25! My professor said my paper was very impressive, well-written, insightful, and a pleasure to read! Not only that, when he handed me the paper, he said that I could likely get it published in one of the anthropology journals! *squees* Those journals are difficult to publish in for people with PhD's, never mind a 3rd year student! Of course, he also thought I was an anthropology major by how good the paper was. I asked him how I'd get published in those journals, and he said my school would have to sponsor me since I have no credibility on my own. I don't know if I'm going to try this semester since it's almost over, but perhaps next year...
And last by most definitely not least...
I SOLVED A PLOT HOLE IN MY STORY!!!
Okay, so I was writing and everything was going fine and dandy... until I wrote a scene that completely changed how my story was supposed to go. This had me panicking because I didn't know what to do. So, I spent the morning pulling out my hair (mostly kidding) trying to come up with a way to solve this. Unfortunately, I hit a roadblock and couldn't think of a single thing. So I did what any normal writer would do... I panic-emailed B.E. Sanderson and Tina Lynn, outlining my problem. *Thank you goils for responding to my odd email!!!* However, by the time I checked my email later on to see if they, in their genius, had solved my problem, I had already talked to Mum and we'd talked our way through it. Yay! Sadly, it did mean I had to cut some of that rebel scene, but that's okay.
So here is my progress:
- I cut about 1500 words off that scene-- ouch!
- I rewrote the end of the scene, which ended up being almost exactly 1500 words
- I wrote about 1000 additional words.
So what's new with you this week? Have any good/exciting news?
