I have no excuse for not blogging this past week, and I didn't do much else either. I've been enjoying my last bit of freedom before school starts again.
My first class is tomorrow. I should be used to school by now but I still feel nervous about the first day. Nervous and excited. This semester I am taking Intro to Fiction, Creative Writing 2, Intro to Film and Intermediate Algebra. I bet you can guess which of these four I am not excited about.
I have not finished my first draft from Nanowrimo, but I am getting back into the habit of writing. The past few days I've been writing a short story for this contest; Jane Austen Made Me Do It. Mine is a modern story about a blogger. I'm enjoying it, but I don't think it will win. It's full of Austen jokes (I named the antagonist "Richard") but there are no direct references to Austen or her novels.
So last night I watched the first Star Wars movie (episode 4) with my brother and my dad. I decided beforehand that I would enjoy it and not mock the ridiculous parts. I wasn't prepared to actually love it. It was a really fun movie and now I want to see the rest of the original trilogy.
I'm not saying it wasn't corny and ridiculous, but it was the fun kind of corny and ridiculous.
Anyway, I will post tomorrow about the first day of school!
