Hooray, got my laptop. Also reached a thousand words on my rewrite. But it’s funny. Remember how I was making fun of two thousand words a day as a goal? Well, I had a story on my mind that we had read in class. I did read the story, but then I missed the discussion period. This story irritated me so freaking much, and I didn’t even get to talk shit about it. So I did a little research on it, to find out why it was in an anthology text book instead of a trash compactor, and there didn’t seem to be a whole lot of people who interpreted it the way I did. So I wrote a fairly long-ish spiel about it just to get it off of my chest, and when I loaded it into Libreoffice the word count was sixteen hundred words. Huh.
So I guess as long as I’m the right amount of pissed off, I could do that many over the course of a few hours, sure.
So, I dunno. I wonder if it’s maybe kinda rude of me to ask people’s opinions on a draft that I’m already rewriting. I’m not sure, but perhaps it might seem a little arrogant? Eh. I just mostly already have misgivings about stuff. My professor told me she doesn’t offer a whole lot of critique of revisions (likely because class is over) but she said she’d include some comments on mine if I wanted. I will be grabbing my portfolio tomorrow. It’s funny. Some of my misgivings about the first draft matched up pretty well with other people’s, but I was very surprised by the things that confused people. So here we go.
Blalalalala. I start summer classes on Monday. Frick. I need to get my fees paid, and I’m also not just in a summer class, but a half-term summer class, which makes it four times the pace of fall/spring. Oh yeah, it’s also at nine forty five in the morning. Never mind waking up, where the hell will I park? I. Am going. To die. But it’s my Greek/Roman authors class, so it should at least be interesting. Wheee.
That’s all I got for now.
