I almost didn't get on tonight to blog because of other commitments...shock horror. Because i'm such a control freak, however, here i am, broadcasting live from the middle of a heat wave.
Welcome to February.
February is the month of Valentine's Day, family birthdays and getting down to business. Yesterday, for example, I started year 12. The teachers have already begun to pile it on... assignments, tests, gruelling physical challenges. The cherry on the cake was the Curriculum Council's course outlines...there was one for each subject...which meant i listened to the same speech six times in the last two days. The school has also decided to convert Phys Ed from sport to a housekeeping and mental well being support group. I'm not entirely sure how i feel about this.
So that is the work load that my writing is competing with.
Luckily, writing is winning. Last night, i sat down at about eight o'clock, and i said to myself "i want to write a horror story." Two hours later i emerged from a writing induced coma only to discover that i had created something that wasn't entirely terrible. i think that perhaps with a little tweaking it could be magazine submission material.
