New - Last - Semester of Classes

In just under two weeks, I start my last two classes.  When this semester is done, I will have earned my second degree.  I'm both excited for this and a little sad.  I won't be crazy busy all the time once I'm done with this degree. 

I looked at master's programs and none of them sold me.  I think the next thing for me will be to spend a lot of time writing.  Whether I get the grant I put in for or not, I have two books ready for publishing.  I am in the process of editing two other books.  I have a third one I'm working on writing - whether it will finish the story or not I don't know. 

My writing has been on the back burner since I started school again.  I never feel like I have time to just sit at the computer and write.  Once I get started, the words just flow so I am looking forward to spending more time writing. 

One of my goals after I graduate is to spend more time submitting my work for publication and contests.  It is always good to put my work out there to see who likes what and what needs more work.

This semester I have a grammar class.  I know many of you are groaning over that but I'm actually looking forward to it.  I have already started reading the book.  My second class is a publications class.  It is with my favorite instructor so I'm sure I'll get something out of it. 

Before classes start, I am going to enjoy a short visit from Stephanie, crochet time, and as much down time as I can cram into the next few days.  Stephanie will be home for a long weekend.  We are going to get two very short visits from her this fall.  It will be fun to have her here by herself and get a bit of one on one time.

One more semester and then on to other things.  It will be good to move forward and focus back on my writing but I'm going to get the most out of the last semester.
