Since my mission, writing has been difficult. My first thought paper for John Bennion wasn't anything special, and my first big paper was like pulling teeth. But today has been a day full of little tender mercies having to do with writing.
- Taking 45 minutes out of my day to just do a rush-write, just for me (well, for an England thing, but it was mostly for me). Putting off homework just to write? Good life decision.
- A professor I really respect telling me that he think I'd make an awesome Writing Fellow and convincing me to actually apply.
- Another professor I really love giving me great comments on a thought paper--made me feel so good about my writing, especially since I wrote it at 2 a.m.
- Just thinking a lot about writing, kind of randomly today. About previous things I've written, about ideas I've had for new personal essays, etc.
I think it's time to start writing more, both academically and for me personally. Only problem: TIME.
