Near the start of another semester and wondering how much I might have to delay my own story writing to accomplish class writing. Since one class is all about writing one long essay, that seems all but inevitable. I might also have to write something long to get into graduate school but that might need to be clarified. It’s been a long time since my mom and I paid any attention to that stuff. On the bright side, both of those things allow for telling stories and I might be able to learn to be more succinct with those, since they can’t be more than thirty or forty-someodd pages double-spaced. Those are on the upper end of my average chapter lengths, and around the length of my longer one-shots, so it might be helpful indeed.
So far, it seems these two classes won’t require any books. The Human Rights class explicitly confirms this while The Senior Seminar still has a “To Be Determined” message. Of course, this could mean we have to buy our own books particular to our research but I wouldn’t exactly complain and neither would the family account. There is a book or two I’m thinking of getting as sources for the essay portion of the paper but I’ll wait to check with the professor. I have little idea of what they have to entail thus far, since neither have opened up their websites on blackboard and posted their syllabus. That might change in the next day or so but in the meantime, all I can do is wait.( Storytelling Woes )
That’s all for now. Maybe I should talk about more than my writing but it’s much of my life. I can do show and character analysis or talk about real world stuff but meh. The last point doesn’t grab me as much. Anyway, the next time I post, I shall have done over a month of the semester and the true gauge of the work there shall give me something extra to talk about. So until then, see you!
