The countdown continues, we’re now in single-digit days before the Rez officially begins. What has me blown out?
There are open periods during the Rez where people are “encouraged” to read from either their workshop pieces or from other writing we bring with us. We can also use these pieces for consultation with the graduate advisers. I have spent the morning opening various files, stories and fragments and read them out loud.
They all suck.
No, I’m being objective. I can’t believe I even think I can write.
I still have a few more things to look at and consider. There is a segment of a YA novel that isn’t as rough as other parts that I think could fill a five-minute time slot but I need to do a little work on it. So that and my workshop notes are now my priorities.
And figuring out what I need to ship ahead.
Remember to breathe…
