Anybody see my Supernerd jacket?

Where did my verbage go?!? I've had two of my biggest writing  tests this week, including my final, and all of my impressive vocabulary has disappeared! I do not appreciate whatever irony can be found in this situation.

Well in other news; I do believe a failed an Ultimate Geek test. I opted out of signing up for summer courses because I'd rather have an uncluttered schedule and some glorious free time. Does that make me less of a nerd? I feel a little like I'm endangering my identity. Well I suppose renewing my piano lessons and stepping up my writing will redeem my supernerd status......right? Hmm...

So I am seriously considering writing my first real peice of literature, I'm not sure exactly how I'm going to go about it but I think it's going to be some kind of allegorical fiction. It will probably be very short. I want to experiment with using imaginanary characters to tell real life stories and morals. My rudimentary attempts should be very interesting if not downright comical ;-)

I suppose I should return to studying, I've got another final in 40 minutes and I don't want to risk dropping my 4.0 and commiting Nerd-Status suicide. If you have any ideas or opinions on topic or technique for my writing project or know some helpful resources then use your keyboard and get at me!

  1. 1) I'm sure you will do fine on your finals. you just used the word "rudimentary" so I'm not worried about you.

    2) You have by no means forfeited nerd status by opting out of summer courses. Considering you are doing so to increase your literary skill. I believe "nerd" is defined by self education and obsession. so really your summer couldn't get nerdier.

    3)I'm muy psyched about this writing project! I volunteer to read anything needed to see this happen. I mean the roughest of rough drafts. I'm there!

    4)The possibilities for subject matter is pretty much endless... let me think on it... my rule of thumb is usually the old adage "write what you know" whatever it is that first comes to mind when you think "what is it that I need to say?" usually is a good starting point. although this usually means I write in bitter cynical poetic verse... it usually reads well :)
