Well, I’m close to finishing my last uni courses before I can start my M.A. thesis, and I can’t decide on a proper research question.
If you’ve read this blog before, you probably know that I am studying for my Master of Arts in Cross-Cultural Communication by distance learning. Unfortunately, that means that I do not know my course-mates and have nobody at uni to actually talk about thesis ideas.
It’s good to see you for our Weekend Coffee Share. How have you been? What have býou been up to tis past week? I have not seen much of the internet this past week as I am studying and writing like mad to make next Saturday’s course deadline.
But I need a coffee break, so I’m glad to be able to spend it with you!
If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that voting in the Inkitt Fandom Writing Contest has been extended by a week, so polls close on Wednesday, October 28. The Bravery of the Soldier, my Sherlock fanfic about how John Watson deals with his army past now that he’s a civilian is currently in 14th place out of 1,710!!!!
You can still vote – or vote again – so please help me stay in the Top 15! Clicking here will get you to the Contest page. Simply scroll to #14 and click the ♥ next to The Bravery of the Soldier to add your vote to it!
My goals for this week continue on from last week. I need to get assignments done for uni, I’m halfway through my book and I really like the Field Notes size for inserts, so I want to make more of them.
Complete CCC505 Assignment #1
Complete CCC505 Assignment #2

Prepare College Binders for MA502
Design more Field Notes inserts
Read Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe
Edit The Bravery of the Soldier for contest submission
How are you? I’ve had a mad week, but I’m so glad to have coffee with you today.
If we were having coffee today, we’d meet at mine and walk into town together. Our annual, inner-city flea market “Zöppkesmarkt” is on this weekend and there’s loads to see and do. Bring a brolly, though, because the weather keeps changing.
I had planned to get so much done this week and then life and family got in the way, yet again. However, I have now drawn up a monthly schedule, which I will hand to my mother as well, so that there’s no excuse for disturbing me until the end of the month when I say “I need to study.”
If I can stick to next week’s plan despite losing the entire weekend. Well, for a piano concert and my birthday – one party with friends and one with family – so it’s a perfect reason not to do anything, but still, it’s technically time I need.
From tomorrow onwards I’ll be participating in Round 3 of A Round Of Words In 80 Days. Although once again I won’t use the time to actually write stories. But I like the focus and community ROW80 provides.
