Tonight, I start my spring semester. I’m doing a creative writing independent study with a professor I adore and a television pilot writing class with a group of friends that I’ve “met” through our online classes. I am so looking forward to the next few months! I haven’t taken a screenwriting class since my undergrad, and that, sadly, was 20 years ago, so it may take me awhile to get my feet under me, but I have lots of ideas and am eager to get started! All the time off from school was nice, but it will be nice to get back into the swing of things.
I did get a lot of stuff accomplished, though. I’ve had lots of little itty-bitty things to work on, blog posts to write, and other projects around the house. It was also really nice to just hang out… We got a lot of snow a few weeks ago, so the kid and I played outside every day. Walks in the snow, a snow fort, snow balls, a conversation about yellow snow, a snow couch, three big snowmen, and soooo many snow angels… I read and watched a lot of TV, too. Some of it is for my TV class, but I also got caught up on a bunch of stuff I have been meaning to watch. I feel like I was a lazy college student on winter break, but I still got stuff done, too.
More on that coming soon! 😉
