Writer's High and Other Things

I'm currently working on a short story for intro to professional writing, and oh, do I love it! It's supposed to be 2,000 words, but I'm about to spill over that already.

There is something very exciting and refreshing about writing someone else's world. I find myself lost in the world as I write. Though I will forever insist I'm not trying to exist through the people I create, I can't help but do that, sometimes. I grow so immersed in the colors and voices and places.

The project? A sort-of commentary on reaching womanhood and right vs. wrong. Stay tuned.


How was your Thanksgiving? Excellent, I hope. My mom spoiled me to pieces while I was visiting my family in Fort Worth. She bought me a box of Godiva dark chocolates, as she did last year, which I plan to eat one at a time every morning until Christmas. It's like an Advent calendar...minus recognition of Advent. And the calendar.

Chris and I purchased our first Christmas tree, which is terribly exciting to my ever-present inner child. Though it is only 4 1/2 feet tall, I am happy because that guarantees my ability to put ornaments at the top.


Today, my professor told us, "You're twenty! You've been alive politically for, like, five seconds."

Lol, professor. Lol.

That's all I got. More steak and less popcorn at a later date, but maybe not until after finals are over...


  1. Of course, even assuming that he's referring to the time since you've been able to vote, and that he's counting it the same for himself, he's only been politically alive for 1 minute, 45 seconds if he's sixty. Not so long himself. :p

    I want steak!

  2. I love that you savor the Godiva chocolate so... one a day - great self-discipline!
    All the firsts of being married are very special - cherish them. Hopefully Chris' Christmas ornaments will arrive soon; at least as soon as Kerry gets them mailed... save some room on your little tree for them.

  3. How did I miss this post??
    I like it.
    And I think I know who said that. :)

    Oh, and story world.. I relate. Isn't it great? :)
