How is everyone doing? Good I hope. I’m doing great. The writing is going well. My classes are going good and I’m learning so much in them. I’m taking my first teaching class. So, far I’ve put together a syllabus and now I’m working on lesson plans for the type of writing class I will teach in the future. I’m also taking a class about publishing and have created a rough draft of a query letter, book jacket copy (blurb) and sample covers for the story I’m using for my thesis project. Also, speaking of the thesis project I have a fiction writing class starting in July and I have to have the plot outline, character sketch, and between 2500-3500 words for the first chapter written to submit during class and I have to have the first 25k written by October for my first thesis class. So, I’m going to be doing a lot of writing over the next few weeks and months.
Now, moving on to the news of the short story. I’m currently finishing up a short story that I don’t remember if I talked about on here or not. It’s a story about twin sisters who are wizards and inherit their parents’ wands. One sister is evil and the other good. I don’t want to give anymore than that away right now. I have a deadline of submitting by August 31st. I have about 5000 more words to go on it and then edit it and create a cover for it as well. It supposed to be published in October.
Wish me luck that I can get everything done by the beginning of July. 🙂
Look forward to reading your comments. 🙂
