University paper, complete!

I submitted my final essay yesterday morning, and then, just for kicks and because I was on a study high, I finished off my self-reflection exercises and submitted those as well – two weeks early! It felt amazing to have it all in. I’m fairly confident I’ll do well enough in the last essay to get a decent grade, and it feels like a huge achievement to actually finish off my very first post-grad paper.

And I am so pleased it’s done. I can now refocus on Burn and everything that will come after.

When I am in assignment mode I can’t write. I can’t even think of writing. There are too many facts and details in my head pertaining to the assignment and any other kind of writing pushes that information aside. I’ve given up on trying to multitask when an assignment is due, though next year I will need to be a bit more onto it than I was for this last one, which consumed me to the point where I couldn’t think beyond it’s due date.

Anyway, it’s in now šŸ™‚ And I can breathe again. I can write again, and think again and read anything I want without fear of deleting important information.


I woke up this morning and for the first time in ages really wanted to write. I have opened Burn and started working on it, even though I’d told myself I was having the weekend off. I want to have it submitted before next weekend as we have a really busy one on. And I can’t wait to get back into reading Sun-Touched and forging ahead with plans for the rewrite.

Apparently, writing fiction and non-fiction simply don’t mix well for me. It’s one or the other, which means that I have until February to get through as much fiction as I can before Uni goes back! lol

I’m ready to admit that it’s October now.

  1. Welcome to October šŸ™‚
    And a big congrats on getting your final assignment and reflections in. I bet its a weight off your shoulders knowing that you don’t have to think about it again! Well… not for a wee while, anyway!
    And I’m very excited to hear that you are writing again. Yippeee!!

    1. Thanks, Leigh! It might be more fun when I get to work on something new – sometimes I feel like I am always in revision mode – but it will be very nice to get Burn out the door and see if I can find it a home.

  2. Congratulations!! I can’t wait for the fast approaching day when I will be finished for this year. That’ll be about 1.30pm on October 30th. Yes, I have it worked out right down to the time.
