Last assignment completed

It's done. Finally. Over 2 weeks late, I've finally finished my last writing assignment. It's packaged with extra stamps and ready to be dropped in the mail box. Thank goodness.

I think my muse has been on vacation since the snow fell. She was all "It's cold, then sun isn't out and I'm outta here!" I think she's somewhere in the tropics, getting tan and drinking margaritas. Bitch. So I had to tackle this last one without her. And that I did.

I'm not done with the class, I still need to get my instructors feedback and my certificate. (That's right. I get a certificate saying I completed this course.) But I've done all the assignments, and done them well I think. And now I need to figure out where to go from here. The publication world is HUGE! And I need to somehow narrow my scope and just pick a few to send my pieces to. And I need to rework some pieces and surly start new ones.

I gotta say, I'm quite proud of myself. This writing class was the first thing in my life I did completely on my own. No outside influences, not because I had to, not because someone told me so. It was all me. And I think I did a fine job. I've grown in my writing, my vocabulary, expressing myself, my ability to tell stories. Now I just need to practice, I don't want to loose all that I've learned.

And in the spirit of Dory from Finding Nemo, "Just keep writing, just keep writing, just keep writing, writing, writing."


  1. you definitely have a way with word, Sarah. Using that gift is a good thing. Keep on working at it!

  2. Wow, it seems like were just sitting at McCormick and Schmick's hearing about this class you just started. Good for you!
