One Step Closer

So today I completed my second/final exit exam, or comprehensive exam (depending on the department). That means that as long as I finish this semester (3 weeks left? something like that) and pass the exam (fingers crossed), then I'll have completed my Master's in English and History. *Cue round of applause*

Okay, so it's really not that big of a deal but I am looking forward to having some free time again. Like time that I can spend reading or possibly even writing (!!!!!)

I also have something else in the works that I won't expand upon because I fear the very real power of the jinx. But if that pans out then I'll be one step closer to some very big personal goals. Okay, that's probably vague enough to ward off the jinx gods.

I guess the next question is, what will I do with my new degree? Probably nothing. At least not any time soon. If you really think about it, the Master's degree was kind of redundant since I already know everything anyways...

Nanowrimo 2012

November is the month to bust a move writing. I was all set and ready to go with this, but as my lack of blogging proves this has been a crazy busy month for me. Well a crazy busy couple of months, but clearly I haven't had the chance to do much writing, much less Nanowrimo writing. 
Sad face.

Since it's November 25th, I don't think I'll make my 50,000 words. Frankly, I couldn't even settle on a story.    It seems like I've got several story ideas haunting me and new ones jumping into my brain daily. I know I shouldn't complain but having all these ideas doesn't help me settle on one. I guess it doesn't matter much anyways because if you don't have the time no matter how great the idea it's just not going to get written. 
At least not yet. 

Long story short, since it doesn't look like I'll be writing anything this November, I guess I can't wear my participant badge of honor.

 Double sad face.
