I'm not dead yet!

Post  Rachel on Sat Jan 07, 2012 10:23 am

(sorry--obligatory Monty Python reference. >.< )

Well, guys, I've had my first week back at university, and it looks like it'll be a good term. Regrettably, however, it also means that my online presence will be diminished somewhat. Crying or Very sad So, my dear Write On-ers, when do you go back to school? How do you balance homework with writing?

I don't go back! NEVER! Razz Well, I might be taking a class or two at the local university, but I'm not in a rigorous college program yet. I'm starting that up next year. (I hope.) As for how I balanced homework and writing…I kinda didn't. In freshman year, my only year of conventional high school, I only wrote on weekends/Friday nights, because I had so much homework. In tenth, eleventh, and twelfth, I wrote/edited a lot more, my obligatory homework got done at the last minute, and my end of year deadlines got put off until the last couple weeks of school…I'm terrible with multitasking that way.

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to survive when I start going to college full time. Well, most college classes don't have that much homework, so I'll probably survive. And just not sign up for any classes that start before like 11. Embarassed So I'm glad I have this year off now, to focus on writing and editing and train myself to be more frugal with my time. Hopefully.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] =( I feel your pain... sorta. My first class is Tuesday. But that's really my biggest stress education-wise; my chem class that meets twice a week. It's got a kindly low level of homework. My two big things to tackle in the next few weeks are studying for/taking my first ACT, and then beginning my new job. I start next week. That'll be interesting.

@Amanda -- Lucky! :-) My multitasking is actually pretty good, when it comes to getting homework done (I'm a full-time university student), but for some reason I have a terrible time "switching" into writing mode. I hope this is an awesome writing year for you, though! Send some Inspiring Brain Waves my direction, if you get the chance. Smile

@Maggie -- It's nice that it doesn't have too much homework! I hope your job/ACT go well...one thing I do *not* miss about high school is the Infamous Standardized Test Of Doom. (shudders)

I will confess that, last year, I actually did take up working on one of my stories during a class. Embarassed The scene just popped into my head, and it was so perfect I couldn't resist...of course, it would've been easier if I hadn't been sitting right across from my prof. Shocked

I'm home-schooled so I end up with plenty of time for writing. For me, school is all year, every year. Every day I have about one hour to get all my school work done for the day. So balancing it out isn't that big of a deal for me.
