I used to wonder how authors could crank out stories so quickly. When I wrote my first (currently unfinished and failed) novel I spent three years on it, mainly during the school year, and I only managed to write about 108 pages and struggled with the ideas. Now I'm writing again, and happily I've found my muse. I'm writing a completely different story and have over 135 pages and I've only been working on it for roughly two-ish months off-and-on at least once a week, and I have plenty of ideas and it's a much stronger piece. I also am brimming with ideas and concepts for a sequel or two. I am amazed how four years of maturity and educational training can make such a difference! It's brilliant!
Get educated people, it lets you think better, even if it might seem boring at the time.

And it is busier than I expected. I am taking Advanced Life Drawing, Doctrine and Covenants 2, and Character Design! The Character Design class is lots of fun, I really enjoy it, but it's a little more work than I was thinking for some reason. Life drawing is also being more work than expected. The terms are so short! Everything is crammed into such a limited time frame! I don't have much else to say right now other than that.
