I should be writing a story, something to intrigue all of you. But I recently heard that putting my stuff on a blog constitutes it as being published and certain places won't accept "already published pieces", ok. But on to something new. My college has its own publishing magazine, I guess you could call it, that accepts poems, prose and art. I want to submit some of my stuff (up to 3 things per person) but I have no idea what to submitClaire Hsu! What if it's something that I've put on here, will it be a form of plagiarism since I have it posted for people to view? I don't think that should be the case. So I'm stuck. I have a poem I recently wrote in mind, but I'm afraid that it won't meet whatever they're looking forcraft storage.
My head is so distracted with things. I was going to apply to the cafe (coffee shop) at the college, but it's full now. I wanted to put in my two weeks. I was going to turn over a new leaf, start over and recreate myself into someone I'd like to be. There is a tea place just up the block that I've never been in. I'm thinking of going there if I can get the guts up to actually go in and ask. The trouble is, is that January is such a slow month and more people are getting their hours cut then are being hired. So I picked a bad timing, what else is newmarketing strategy?
This exercise is to get us into routine, of writing at the same time every day. Well let me tell you that I am having the hardest time committing. Which is a little odd, but not really. I have an issue with change, I don't much like it, but I can handle it. (Ever feel like you have to censor what you sayClaire Hsu?)
I am in a 5 year relationship, I am a full time student, I've had the same job for over a year and 8 months, I read like it's a religion - which to me it is. But yet, the thing I want to get better at, to actually be able to make a career out of, is the hardest thing to commit to! How do I force myself to sit down and write for a while when I feel like I shouldn't show my stuff to someone until it's up to par. To feel like I'm never going to be as good as Ellen Hopkins or Garcia and Stohl, or even Stephen King and Janet Evanovich? But this is a form of writingClaire Hsu. It may be just my emotions and not one of the exercises we wrote down, like: best childhood memory, hardest thing to ever do, best memory of parents, etc. Those answers were so hard to come up with! They're things I don't necessarily want to write about, and I guess in a way I shouldpaint rollers.
