But, good news, the uni application stuff is totally (hopefully) sorted, and the WIP first and second drafts are finished. Yay!
I'm stressing out about both, because the WIP is 1st person POV and it's got a lot of grief in it, something I struggle to write well. I prefer angst when the character is the one who created it, but this story kinda spoke to me if that doesn't sound cheesy (okay it totally does). So it's out with betas and I'm just stressing out about uni now - all those new people!
I'm going to study Publishing, which makes me happy :)
But I want to say a big thank you to the writing site that kept me sane over the summer, because this WIP was troublesome and I so nearly gave up so many times. I didn't, because of the Absolute Write Water Cooler (www.absolutewritewatercooler.com ). If you're a writer who hasn't joined that site, SERIOUSLY DO IT NOW RIGHT NOW. As well as all the help, support, and critiquing pages, discussions about aspects of YA/Horror/Literary/MG/anything else you can think of, it's great being part of such a community.
I'm going to stop this post because I'm gushing, and because it's not exactly the most thrilling of reading material.
But I will be back with more posts while I wait for my *amazing* betas to get back to me (and after), so keep checking back, folks!
