As the title says, I started the new term today. Winter term, which I always forget the name of. It makes no rational sense, but I seem to always forget that between Fall term and Spring term there is Winter term.
I had my first classes and found that I will be doing an immense amount of writing. In terms of numbers of assignments, it seems that way. When you compare the size of the papers ( approximately 2-3 pages for each) and the number (at most, 15- ten for one class, three for a second class, and two I believe for the third class), it just doesn’t seem like that much, after all. Of course, I have spent the last few years attending school online, and all of my assignments and participation was done through typing. Add to that my love of writing both academic papers and fiction, and I just get more excited about these classes, rather than intimidated!
Some of my writing will be done here, but most of it for this term will be done at my academic site, procatpdx.wordpress.com, if anyone is interested in that. Next term, I hope to take some creative writing courses, and those assignments I will post here. Of course, if I get inspired, I reserve the right to use my non-fiction research to create lovely fiction for this site.
