This Week in Life

UntitledI’ve got a lot going on this week. Outside of homework, I’ve actually been able to write significant portions of my own work, I had a cookie party with my sister (which I’m sure you watched on my twitter and tumblr accounts), this Friday I’m going to Washington, DC, and this Saturday (hopefully) I’m going to the CampusPhilly festival.

You’ll see some of my work on this month’s My Fiction Friday. It’s only the first chapter but it’s the fourth draft. Speaking of drafts, I’ve been re-reading On Writing by Stephen King, great book, go out and read it, in which he talks about his own drafting policy. Specifically, it’s two drafts and a polish. I hate you, Stephen. Two drafts!? Am I doing something wrong? I have several drafts. My average is 5. Yes, I said average.

But enough about that.

UntitledMy sister and I had a great night baking cookies and watching movies. A nice girls night in. We bought the Halloween Pillsbury cookies and apparently they come with masks on the back. We totally wore them and ate cookies. It was awesome. I was a kitty cat!

This will be my third time in Washington, DC, although only my second time as an adult. My friend Magdalyn Ann, a fellow writer and contributor to Round Robin, has photojournalism this semester and has to go down for class (just like I did last year). There were extra seats on the bus so we’re going to make a day of it.

The CampusPhilly festival is going to be so much fun. A lot of the museums are free, so if you live in the Philadelphia area and have a college ID I really recommend checking it out. I’m looking forward to going to the Franklin Institute (it’s one of my favorites) and apparently the Eastern State Penitentiary will also be open. I haven’t been there in years.

All in all it looks like it’s going to be a very eventful week!

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
