Time for another post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, created by Alex J. Cavanaugh.


First of all, thank you to everyone who has visited and commented on my A to Z posts, I've had a lot of lovely comments, so thank you! I haven't returned the favour as much as I would have liked to, but I'm trying to catch up! I've had a busy few weeks.

I spent most of this month working on my assignments that were due on the 24th of April, so that's mostly what I'll be talking about. As usual, I'm wondering if I've done enough to get good marks on them - I always feel like I could have worked harder, spent longer editing them, just to make them a little better. I know this is a common feeling with writer's - not feeling like your work is good enough.

But there really isn't any point worrying about it anymore - I've handed them in now, so I can't do anything about it. I did work really hard on them, so I'll just have to hope that it was enough to get good marks.

One of my assignments, a collection of poetry based on Greek Mythology (thus the A to Z theme) is available here, if anyone wants to take a look. It doesn't cost anything, and I'd love to see what you all think of it.

All I have left for my Creative Writing Masters course now is the dissertation, and it's not due until the 12th of September, so I have plenty of time to work on it. I'm hoping to get the draft written for July's Camp NaNoWriMo, since we can choose our own word count goals now. My dissertation needs to be 13000 words long, so that only means about 500 words a day - much easier than 1600! I'll be spending May and June planning it - it's going to be a series of short stories.

I'm a little insecure about the dissertation, since it's such a big part of the Masters and I want to do it as well as I can. I just need to make sure I don't leave it until last minute, but my Camp NaNo plan should prevent that.

  4. Laura, you'll be amazed how well you'll do on the dissertation. Just take it a little at a time so you can be sure you're not overwhelmed. Remember that you are talented and you're capable of much more than you ever imagined.

  7. If you did the best you could, then rest easy with that knowledge.
    Really admire you for getting a Masters in creative writing. That's above and beyond what most of us ever accomplish.

  9. 500 words a day really does sound so much easier! You'll be done with days to spare. Good luck :-)
