School's out for summer!

Well, for me at least. :) These past few weeks have been crazy with finals, but now they're over and I get to breathe. Right now I'm staying at my sister's house, and in a week and a half, I'm going to the LDStorymaker's Conference. Whoohoo! It's going to be my first "real" conference, and I'm excited and nervous and keep looking and the schedule and trying to figure out what I want to go to.

And this summer looks like it's going to be super busy. I'm going to be getting a job as school costs money. And I'm also going to be working on my honors thesis to graduate with honors next year. I'm going to be writing a book for my honors thesis (surprise, surprise, right?). And this is even more awesome than usual because I'm going to work under Dr. Chris Crowe, who's a professor at BYU that specializes in YA literature, both in writing and studying it. And my fantastic writing teacher this past semester, Carol Lynch Williams, will also be helping to make sure my thesis is ready to turn in for defense this next January.

What type of things do you guys have coming up you're looking forward to?

  1. That's awesome that you get to write a novel as your honors thesis. With feedback from those professors/writers, it's sure to be great! Best of luck. :)

  2. So cool that you get to write a novel as your thesis!
    I'm dual majoring in Creative Writing and English lit, so I would kill for that!

    Hopefully I'll be finishing/editing my first novel this summer:) And..probably the job part too.
    Whats your novel about?
