Try not to think about it. . .try not to think about it. . .

Now what is this thought to not think about? School. Homework. Classes. That stuff. I still hate talking about it, even though I'm slightly excited to return. Ha, ha. . . I didn't even start packing yet.

Anyway -

I guess you can call this another update? That's how I see it.

The third novel could have been finished in the summer, but technically, even though I'll be back at school, it would be still summer, so I still have a chance. Still! The weather is horrible, so horrible that I have decided to refuse to write books in the summer until I'm in a cooler place. The heat was so awful, it made me lazy, and I hate being lazy. Hate it. There's writing to be done! Am I doing too much? Maybe. But I'm going to keep at it. There is no way I'm going to give up.

On a lighter note, I may have that music story finished on Tuesday. It's on my mind, no worries.

Music in Stories, Oh My!

Yes, folks, it's true. I've started a short story on a character who is a musician. Someone who plays only the viola as far as I know.

And I enjoyed it so far.

Obviously, it's going to be finished sometime. Will I ever post it on here? Not sure. Just felt like updating on how I'm doing.

Lately, I've been taken under music's spell. Specifically the spell both my guitars put on me. xD I really don't mind. It's about time I got back into music. I did play guitar before, but stopped at the eighth notes. Gosh! I was so close to the end of the first book I used! Grr, I really got annoyed with myself last week when I started again. This time, I don't plan on quitting so quickly.

I've already written a poem on music; now there's a short story. I have no idea if there will be more of that.

How do I become a slam poet?

Step 1: Be a minority, woman, or both. Anything but a white male.

Step 2: Be a crazy leftist.

Step 3: Hate white men.

Step 4: Only do slam poetry about hating white men and minority "problems."


There ya have it! Unfortunately, slam poetry is only nailing the coffin on poetry even more. It's not even good poetry. It's stupid, and I hate it so much.

Please don't be a slam "poet." You're killing a beautiful art.
