I feel much better since my last post. All my assignments for class are coming together.
Goose Girl Adaptation aka Dead Horse Talking is now revised and ready for it's final critique! I had to work on fleshing out the relationship in the story and providing more closure at the end. Summary of story: A childhood friendship is on its last leg as two teen girls grow apart, and a betrayal by one girl will be the last straw.

My second short story (after driving me a little crazy) is now ready to be revised. I had a major brainstorming session and now know where I want to go with it.
For my YA Science Fiction class, I now finally have a paper topic. I'm going to examine the female archetypal pattern of maiden to mother to crone in the character of Miranda in the YA post-apocalyptic novel, Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer.
For my Forms and Boundaries class, I'm going to do a short presentation on how graphic novels engage reluctant readers. I will be using the texts Maus by Art Spiegelman and Malice by Chris Wooding. I'll do a whole blog post on my presentation info sometime next week!
And I'm seeing Harry Potter DH Pt2 tomorrow with my Mom and Brother. Who are coming to visit! Because they are awesome! Woo hoo!
