Early this morning, I email-submitted my application for the Viable Paradise writer’s workshop. Then I went to sleep, and after breakfast, went to the post office to send a hard copy of my manuscript. Yes, today is the deadline for applying, and yes, I do wait until the last minute much…ly. (Adverb? Really? Whatever.)
You may recall that I applied to Clarion and Clarion West earlier this year, but was not accepted to either. No big–it actually made planning our road trip a little easier. VP happens at the end of September, by which time we’ll be settled in Portland (or at least planted in a hotel nearby, looking for an apartment).
But even if I don’t get into VP, I have an idea for a year-long writing project which I plan to start this fall. More details to come. And, of course, I’ll be doing NaNoWriMo in November.
Meanwhile, here’s my new list of things to do, with deadlines:
- Vote for Hugo Awards – July 7
- Apply for Stanford in Entertainment (SIE) Alumni Mentor Program – July 15
- Help Team Snout finish application for Ghost Patrol Game – July 18 (solve remaining pre-clues)
- Audition for Stanford Singer’s Showcase – July 20 (find audio recordings)
