In brighter news, I'm writing again. I've started a new story. It is a new fantasy (no I'm not giving up on the old one, I just needed a change of pace for a while) call Eternal Forest
. If you would like to read the first chapter, go here
. You can also find some of the short stories there that I wrote for class last year.
Thank you to everyone who helped cheer me up about not making it to the next leg of the Amazon novel competition. I wanted to share something else that happened that made me feel better about it. I learned that I know someone else that entered a novel and didn't make it to the next round. MY WRITING PROFESSOR!!!!! I hate the way she grades and often times I think she's full of shit so it made me feel like a million bucks to see her get rejected just like everyone else. That may sound evil of me, but who cares!
Just got an email that my first class is canceled today.
I was defeated last night! My honor has been dragged through the wet, slushy snow! I had a delivery to a road that the jeep and I actually couldn't make it up! I've never not been able to make it up a road in the jeep before. I feel defeated. I know it's silly, but my vehicle is also my hobby and I pride myself on the fact that no road is closed to me because it's too difficult.
