Update

Haven’t seen a new post in a while?  That’s because there hasn’t been.  I overloaded with credits last quarter and turned in a 154 page senior project.  Additionally, I have been training to pass physical tests for the police academies I have applied to.  This quarter I have a regular amount of classes so there should be more content coming.

English 314 – Writing Fictions: Longer Forms

This quarter I am taking English 314 with Dr. Meyers.  So far the class is extremely enjoyable.  Not only that though, it includes writing prompts to open the class.  If you have been following my blog in the past you can probably guess what that means… regular prompts.  I will be posting my responses to most of the in class prompts on here.   I might also post other work for this class.  We shall see, it is only the second week of the class.

Books

Since the last time I was on my blog I have finished several books and the regular recap of the books I have read will be posted soon.

Personal Writing Update

Currently I am working on a piece titled “Noble Lady by Birth, Lady Warrior by Heart.”  It is a fantasy piece set in a kingdom known as Hiddenvalle.  More details will come as the story progresses.  But it is my piece for my English 314 class so it will get worked on.

Reading List and Update

Update

The reason I have been slack on posting is that I am back to work and on top of that trying to start a new literary journal with the lovely staff over at The Brave New Word (http://thebravenewword.com).  Today is our second full day taking submissions and the traffic through the site is amazing!

Reading List

On my old website before iPage broke down I had a reading list for 2012.  I am going to attempt to recreate that here.  Basically, it is all the books I have read and want to read before the end of the year.  This shall be updated soon with much more books to read.  Most of my reading gets done over the summer while I am at work.
