Write This Very Minute

I'm a total NEGLECTER of information.  I forgot to tell you one of the main reasons why I quit my job in July, other than, what was it?  "The Man can suck it?"
Oh yes.
I'M GOING BACK TO SCHOOL!

Yes, that's right.  :)  In January '11 I'll be going back to finish my degree in English Lit with an emphasis in Writing, to hopefully work in the publishing industry when I graduate.

This decision feels right and so so good and so so scary!  But I know I was meant for more than this. 

Also...
Can't say much now, because we're just in the wee germination stage, but a friend and I (not going to tell you who she is until she gives me permission) are in the works for co-authoring a FABULOUS book.  In fact, we're meeting in an hour to go over logisitics.  BUT she is absolutely amazing and a fabulous writer and we could really reach and help a lot of people with our voice.  We both have amazing stories to tell.

Cade starts preschool next month so that gives me at least 8 hours a week to focus on my writing.  I know that's not a lot but I'll take what I can get, so as he goes to preschool I'll head to a cafe to focus on my book.  I need to stop just talking about writing my book, and actually start writing it!

So, suffice it to say, this book we're thinking of starting is going to be absolute MURDERATION.  Stay tuned for more info!

that's awesome! about school and the book. my dad read a book called 'no plot, no problem' (i think that was the title) about how you can write a book quickly. don't know if that would be helpful at all... good luck!

Awesome Bree! I think going back to school is a wonderful idea!
Writing seems to give you great comfort and you definately have a talent for it and it is so great that you're nurturing that talent!
You go Girl! (I know I'm retarded....I really don't say that IRL :))

Brie, this makes me so happy. I know you will LOVE making that time/space for yourself to tell your story and I'm really proud of you for going back to school. I am working on my book idea this fall, too (early mornings.) We're getting a special desk all set up for me :)
