End of the Quarter Musings

Self can hardly believe it, but there’s only one week of regular class left in the quarter. It seemed like only yesterday that she was greeting the 35 new students who signed up for her English 1B at xxxx community college. If self makes it safely through this week’s grading hell, she will emerge next week with only the Writing Center hours and the finals.

Then, son comes. And, the end of the week, the carpet cleaners come (Self was not able to secure an appointment before son’s arrival, boo).

This evening, self cooked up a very grand plan with one of the handful of friends she made at VCCA: Drew. Self will write something, and Drew will set it to music. Then, we will apply for a grant and become famous. At least, this is our fond hope.

Let’s see, the year is coming to a close, and self does not have any travel plans drawn up for next year (other than Mendocino — self agreed to teach a couple of workshops at Mendocino Coast Writers Festival, something she admits she’s pretty excited about). There is one reading she knows she has for sure, at Books Inc. in Opera Plaza, but that’s not until March. And she only managed to get off one application for a writing residency, so far. Looks like 2008 will be a relatively quiet year, then. Especially since self doubts she will get to Manila next summer. So, does this mean she’ll have time to crank out another book — ???

Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
