Coincidence, or Just plain Awesome?

I had to meet with several of my teachers in an effort to salvage the shipwreck that was this semester (thanks, Dad!). One of those teacher was Dr. Foster, the instructor of Masterpieces of Music.

So I went to his office, yadda yadda yadda, talked about my grades, yadda yadda yadda, talked about my stress and my eye inflammation dealie, yadda yadda yadda, was told I had several assignments that once completed would allow me to pass.

One of those assignments: I have to write a short story based on Beethoven's 5th Symphony. The "duh-duh-duh-DUNNNN" one. As in, I have to write it as if someone is reading it along with the music, and all the events in the story illustrate the feelings expressed in the piece.

I have about two more weeks before it is due, and I have a doozy of an idea for it. Hopefully I can hammer something out over the weekend to show you here on the Receptacle. It will be the first actual piece of fiction I have shown you all (except for those of you from CSSA, you are quite familiar with my fiction there). I can't wait! Squee!

1 brain pickings:

  1. Sounds good to me. Good luck with it, can't wait to see it.

    Also: you "squee"d. I was not aware of your status as a fourteen year old girl.

    I miss my days of writing fiction for assignments, my Creative Writing module was one of the best courses I've ever taken. Oh well, in three years' time I'll be able to take a part-time masters in it. Just three more years....
