So, I get an epiphany of how to unstick the jammed creative monster that is my MA thesis, and here I am, up to my eyeballs in grading because I had all seven — yes, seven — of my classes have essays due AT THE SAME TIME!
And I’ve graded one of them. Woo-hoo! I’ll need to grade two more classes’ worth to give back tomorrow. And — oh yes! There are four more classes as well! Can The Lizardqueen get all of that graded, to give back by the end of this week? Can squirrels do a triple-lutz while ice-skating to Sousa music?
In a word, um… no. Or, in a few, more optimistic words… not likely.
Meanwhile, what with being the faculty advisor of my college’s student creative writing club, I have creative writing on the brain. And. No. Time. To. Work. On. It.
Hence, my squirrel-like drive to get the grading done ASAP so I can put in some short story writing time.
Argh, I say! ARGH!
