I was a little remissed that I went two days without posting a new blog, but now I realized that sometimes my focus needs to be elsewhere. I was still writing, but also doing alot of research. It is amazing how much precision goes into formatting your work so that it's perfect in the literary world. Everything is very precise and I obsessed all weekend on not missing a single detail.
My master writing class has also been keeping me busy. This week I need to be prepared to critique two of my fellow classmates drafts. The work is of their choice, and they are to listen passively while their peers offer praise and suggestions on how to improve their work. I read the writing several times because I wanted to make sure that I can offer both equally.
And so it was that most of my other plans for the holiday weekend went unfufilled. I still have some shopping and preperation to do for an upcoming get together, and it looks like any hopes for simply relaxing have gone out the window. My car is still sitting in the garage unwashed and the grass seed I intended to plant remains sealed in it's container. Life happens to be too short, so maybe I'll stop worrying about all of the little things. Now I can cross at least one thing of my list!
