- Keep being productive like I was on Wed (a FUN & EASY 1,000 words!)
- Write the next episode of Twenty-Somewhere for this week
- Write the next next episode of Twenty-Somewhere for next week
- Format and schedule posts from my fabulous guest bloggers for next week (!!)
- Pack for next week
- Don’t freak out about next week
- Do homework for next week
For those of you who are wondering, next week = Kenyon Review Writers’ Workshop! So this is your last chance to donate to my KRWW fund, if you were thinking about it. If you weren’t, that’s cool, but would you mind sending me all your creativity, like, now? I’m gonna need it.
My homework, courtesy of my teacher / Kenyon Review fiction editor Geeta Kothari, is to read a short list of short stories before we get there. If you care to “get your learning on,” they are:
- The Jilting of Granny Weatherall by Katherine Anne Porter
- Paul’s Case by Willa Cather
- To Build a Fire by Jack London
And yes, I said “guest bloggers.” (!!) For those of you not familiar with the concept, a guest blogger is someone who “pinch hits” when the regular blogger is out of town or otherwise occupied. Like me! So next week you can look forward to at least 3 posts from special friends of mine — including a feisty yet sensitive fellow twenty-something, a fun and inspiring woman/mother/teacher, and someone who once gave a 10-min PowerPoint presentation titled “Living with Kristan Hoffman.”
Don’t bite, okay?
