The End is Nigh...

Of the holidays, I mean. I'm referring, of course, to the fact that for me, university life starts tomorrow. I have Orientation all the rest of this week, and then after that its back to the business of studying. So I suppose that actual writing will fall to the wayside of studying writing.

I haven't written in my journal for ages because of my novel any how so I'm going to start being a bit more regular as far as that goes. Where ever I go, it will go too. Perhaps I'll have some more short stories to post on here? For instance, last night I really wanted to write a parody of The Wizard of Oz based on admission to University. It wasn't all that great really because I was writing whilst horizontal but I used up a whole lot of pages on writing which was liberating.

Another brightside is that while I am taking a break to study writing, I'll be able to take some distance from my own writing, which will hopefully make it easier to edit. If it seems like someone else's work, I won't have so much trouble criticizing it seeing as that's what I do with everyone else's writing. I even do it with books that have already been published. I'm always looking for sentences that I don't agree with. I'm no expert, so I don't follow up on the mistakes that I find, but it's good practice, right???

So. In summation: Novel shelved temporarily. Uni begins tomorrow. Work on other stuff including blog and journal will be evident from next week.

Wish me luck,
