London's Calling!

Workout Song of the Day: "Uprising" by Muse

Hello peeps! I've missed you all SOO much. It's funny how accustomed you get to posting on your own blog. I've been away from it for weeks and I already feel like a negligent mama. Aside from all the hubbub that was Christmas and New Years (I love you family, but I think I've seen WAY too much of you over the past few days), I am happy to announce--drum roll please--I am currently in England for short-term study abroad. As you may note from my mini bio, I am currently back in school to receive my MFA in creative writing. As part of my program, I have to complete a 10 day residency at Wroxton College--just outside of London. I've never left the country before, so needless to say I'm a tad excited. However, I would be pleased if I never had to step foot in an airport again.

My Internet connection sucks here, and they have me actually working my butt off in all things writing, but I still want to start my new weekly format on Monday. I may not be able to post everyday, but I at least want to start my info on agents tomorrow.

Well, I'm off now to start working on a paper. BTW, anyone have any cool New Year's resolutions they'd like to share? I'm all about finishing my book and nabbing an agent. I would also add getting in shape, but that's a given--and I don't like setting myself up for failure. :)

Def. finishing my novel and finding an agent are on the top of my New Year's Resolution list. Also, I want to try and smile more often and not let the annoyance of everyday get to me so much :) BTW- Being able to say that we are in England is so effing cool!!!!!!!!!

London? How exciting! Work hard in your studies, but don't forget to take in the culture while you are there!

I had listed weight loss as my number one resolution. But I think finishing book number two is a tad higher on my list. This winter break found me writing a lot, not as much as I would've liked, but that's ok. I have a year :)
