I start back at university tomorrow so I’m taking a break from regular posting this week. My course is via distance learning, so there are no changes to my classes because of the pandemic. They’ve released the reading list early, and for next week alone I have ten things to read! Thankfully I have Merlin cuddles to keep me company:
I’m not looking forward to the rest of my MA though. Lock-down and isolation has given me plenty of time to think, and that’s made me hesitant to continue the course. I haven’t learned much so far, and my last assignment sucked the fun out of writing. Camp Nanowrimo reminded me how much fun writing is when I choose what to write. I want to lose myself in projects I’m passionate about, but an MA in Creative Writing isn’t allowing time for that.
I hope the next modules are better than the last one, but I’m wondering if my time would be better spent finishing a first draft. On the one hand quitting after coming this far seems like a waste, on the other I’m not looking forward to the 20000 word assignment.
I’ll see how the next two weeks of classes go and return next week with an Updates Post!
