How is it Wednesday already?
Time for another ROW80 Update.
While I’m doing my absolute best, it seems unlikely that I will finish my entire To Do List this week. It’s the week around the 10th, which is the busiest time in our office, and I had to put in a lot of overtime Monday and yesterday. This resulted in me doing pretty much nothing on Monday night, and trying to catch up yesterday.
The MA501 Assignment #4 I wrote last week came back from a friend who proof-read for me – and advised I rewrite it. So now I have to do three university assignments – MA501 #4, MA501 #5 and CCC502 #4 by Sunday, and I spent most of yesterday evening going over my notes and decided to start MA501 #4 from scratch again. I’ll get to that today.
I also completed Interviews module #1, which is just a short course giving advice on job interview tactics. And I completed the last module of Cultural Studies & Modern Languages last night, making it the first FutureLearn course I finished. I’ll send off for my Statement of Participation next week.
Writing creatively has got away from me a bit over the last few weeks due to all that university work, but last night something amazing happened: I’ve been invited to submit a short story of 2.000 – 7.000 words to a new Sherlock Holmes Anthology that is in the making!!
Looks like my NaNoWriMo 2013 novel impressed someone. The only problem is that the deadline is in 2 weeks’ time. As The Doctor would say: “It’s squeaky bum time!”
So now I just have to come up with a case for the detective and his faithful doctor and a believable setting for a Holmes story. “The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!”
