cicer: (Wondering)
First term of grad school: completed

Sanity: intact (mostly)

Physical status: exhausted

I had a wonderful time this semester, but I am pooped. I get the next three weeks off, thankfully, but then it's right back into the madness. Things are going well, though. I'm enjoying my program. Like my classmates and professors. It's all good. I also (somehow) managed to do NaNoWriMo last month, so that was pleasing. Another 50k words added to one of my novels-in-progress!

I'm making real progress with one particular novel. I think I'll devote 2012 to really wrangling that sucker into shape. Part of the winner's goodies for NaNoWriMo included a code for some free printings of your manuscript over at CreateSpace, so if I can get a good solid draft finished by June, I'll get to see what my novel might look like all printed up all nice and shiny. That would certainly be good motivation to keep working at it and eventually looking for an agent/publisher. I'm learning a lot about all of that through my MFA program anyway, so it's all extremely helpful and encouraging.

...Eeesh. I keep feeling like there was something (undoubtedly many somethings!) I was trying to remember to post about, but damned if I can remember any of it now. I swear grad school has somehow lowered my IQ. Ack.

Hope you are all doing well and looking forward to whatever holidays you might happen to celebrate! Any news I should be aware of? Everybody OK?
