It didn’t feel right to talk about this before I finished my graduate school work. So, here I am in this candid moment to tell you about balancing graduate school and writing. I don’t feel the most qualified, as I don’t have an agent, don’t have anything published, and have trunked a project. But I did write 2+ books in 15 months, so that’s…something.
Part 2 of a 4-part series about my writing process and learnings. The first part was about going on a hiatus. This second part is about my discovery that I am not a “pantser” whatsoever.
Hiatus ends on Friday, so I’m back to writing on Saturday. My deadline for my graduate school project got pushed to 4 days earlier. Moving is already giving me the anxieties. The next two weeks are going to be fascinating.
On the lighter side, the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers are running a Kickstarter for Kaleidocast’s second season. Support emerging voices in the broken Brooklyn storyscape.
Every week, I’m going to write briefly about any writing or otherwise updates. Figured after a week of not writing would be a great place to start. Jo’s been on hiatus for 7 days, y’all.
Why “I Didn’t Hate It”? Because I’m too hard on myself all the time and it felt like an appropriate update title.
