Cue the Locusts.

What in the frilly heck is Mama Nature up to?

I can’t wait to be rid of the rattling windows and snippy drafts that slice deep into my soul during these torrential downpours.

Of course, when I was busy with coursework and didn’t venture out into the world, it was gorgeous outside. Now that I have a class to go to tomorrow, I’m in need of Noah’s trusty mode of transportation.

Anyhoo, no rest for the wicked.

WRITING:

Multilingual and otherworldly writing this week.

Lots of progress on Aaralyn’s Song. More character development, worldbuildling, and snappy dialogue. It’s nice to channel real world frustrations into the fictional universe. I think, due to inclement weather, my antagonist was even more nefarious than she needed to be. Oh, well.

From an academic standpoint, we were supposed to write a composition for French class making use of all the questions we’ve learned so far, along with as much vocab as possible. Mine is three pages long. I think I got excited when the writing bug for Aaralyn’s Song went beyond to my coursework. That’s fine by me.

 

READING:

Some people would be turned off by dreary views outside their windows. I’ve actually been able to read more of my NetGalley. Good thing, too. I just got my first round of contest entries to judge for the Sandy Writing Contest.

 

NETWORKING:

We had a Reading Break last week. That was spent primarily on my coursework and my own WIPs. I hope to have more face time with my school organizations later in the week.

 

LEARNING:

Exams coming up. I’ve been in study mode. I also spent a good portion of last week calling and emailing schools to help figure out my summer session. I got an expected answer from one program. It wouldn’t be prudent to miss the last two weeks of class because of my previously booked excursion. It’s for the best so I can work and save up more money for the journey.

 

This month is whizzing by.
