At the rate I’m going I’ll probably have more than one post entitled, “Procrastination.” I haven’t written since the last time I posted. To be honest, I feel lost without the structure and deadlines of taking a class. And my class just ended this week.
The class I took was called Read Like A Writer and it was HARD. I haven’t done a close reading of fiction or poetry in about twenty years. Maybe more. As I did the assignments, I felt like I was just reading into things, into the text, basically making shit up. I struggled with the homework, but I did complete them.
The next class I’m taking is called Outlining Your Novel, which I really need. I have much of my outline done, and have written a few parts. Now I feel like I’m stuck.
