Exhausted


After a couple of marathon sessions, I've finally completed the rough draft of my creative thesis - and I am tired. I had about three hours of sleep last night. I liked what I wrote, but then again I've had no sleep; so it could be a jumbled piece of crap. Tonight, if I don't collapse as soon as I walk in the house, I'm doing absolutely nothing. There better be some cheesy VH1 special on.

And then there is the final polish before it goes out for signatures - but I'll worry about that on Thursday.

So who are your thesis readers? Jim and David?

Steve Allan said...

Well, it's not going to be John Holmes.

Besides, are there any other pop fic instructors at Stonecoast?

Well, I read in the handbook that we can get an outside second reader. I was interested to see if you'd gone that route.

Congrats on completing the first draft!

May your reward be...better than that picture.

I love that the documentary/highlight reel of John Holmes is called 'Exhausted".

Congrats. That very first rough draft completed feels sooooooo good. Its one of the very best feelings I think a person can experience in their lifetime. Is this your first novel?

Steve Allan said...

No, this is my second novel. The first is a pretentious crap that only an MFA student would love. That was my sacrificial novel - I needed to get all the bad out. But I really like this story a lot and I have high hopes.
