It's been a while since I've done a OneWord365 post because life has been extremely busy for me. But within the last week, I decided to take a leave of absence next semester to take care of myself. I won't go too deep into it, but long story short: if I went into next semester as I am (even with the 1-month winter break) things would not go well. So, I'm taking a step back to get myself and my life in order. That said, my winter plans are completely up in the air. I'm hoping to spend enough time to finish drafting and hopefully revising (and maybe even editing) Unmoored so I can publish it soon.
In the meantime, I'm busy writing 2 final papers and studying for 3 final exams. I've gotten a jump start on one of the papers (the draft is already done), but I still have quite a lot of work ahead of me. So while I may not be able to start thinking of fun things for myself yet, that doesn't mean I don't have something for you, my audience. Below, I have 3 giveaways featuring signed paperbacks of The Belgrave Legacy. The first one ends on 12/20/2017 at 12:00am EST, the second one ends only 2 days later: on 12/22/2017, and the final one goes all the way into the new year: until 2/28/2018.
So enter all three below now, and good luck!
This is my third week of Junior Year and I find myself still getting back into the homework mindset while also trying to finally get back to my writing and remembering to be more social than I have been at school so far.
All in all, I find myself tending towards iTunes and Netflix to an unhealthy degree. Thankfully, last night I spent 2 hours writing The Belgrave Legacy's sequel Unmoored and replying to beta reader comments on The Matchmakers. Unfortunately, I still need to psych myself up to fix and finish this draft of The Matchmakers before I then revise it into Draft 2, revise, edit, and publish it. Who knows how long that will take. But the good news is that I'm writing (and now blogging) again. I would say that's progress.
Today I start my new internship at Seneca Women and I am beyond excited to be working for this amazing organization. It's a huge time commitment, but it's totally worth it and I couldn't be happier. If you don't know much about the organization, check out their website and social media, and don't forget to read the book that started it all (links below, including my book review of Fast Forward by cofounders Melanne Verveer and Kim Azzarelli).
As you can tell from the title of this post, I will be talking about the end of my sophomore year of college, my first semester at Boston University, and my plans for this summer.
First, the end of school was on a relatively high note. I wasn't stressed by my exams, finished them all quickly, got good grades on my final papers, and in my classes in general. Being in Boston was such a different experience than being in Waltham and I'm so glad I decided to transfer, even though it was scary at first.
Second, what next?
I've officially had 3 of my 4 classes this semester, and I think it's going to be a good year. I already have a bunch of homework, which I'll be diving into once I'm done writing this blog post. I have 1 English class, 1 Psychology class, 1 Astronomy class (I needed a natural science credit), and 1 Women's Studies class (which is the one I haven't yet had). I registered for these classes a few days ago, and am very pleased with all of them—which means I won't be dealing with the headache of adding or dropping classes like many other students.
If you've started school recently, how is your homework load? Is it already piling up? Or are your professors easing you into it?
I'm a self-published author (because being a college student wasn't hard enough!) and spend most of my time doing homework. I write YA multi-genre fiction for young adults or the young at heart. I love NCIS, BBC's Sherlock,
