I’m not going to lie, I’ve done nothing this week. I went home to Cheltenham to help my Mum and step-dad pack ready for their move and now I’m in Cardiff for the week. I’m hosting my creative writing group tonight and I have a drag themed birthday party to attend on Saturday. I’ve bought a book with me to write notes on, but I don’t think I’m going to have much time to actually do anything.
I have arranged to go to another conference though, there’s one being hosted by Sussex university – Trans Studies Now which I am really excited about. They’ve got an open CFP at the moment, so I’m trying to think of something smart to write a paper on to submit.
I’ve written a short story to submit to an online magazine, which doesn’t really count toward my PhD, but a publication is a publication right? Especially as I might one day end up teaching creative writing (mu undergrad and MA are in English and Creative Writing).
So that’s it. I doubt I’ll have anything to write about next Monday either…but after that I’m really going to have to up my game!
