And the wait goes on . . .

It’s only been a couple of weeks since I sent off my ECA, with an August deadline for my results, and I’m already impatient to start my new course {g}

I must admit that I’m always happier with a structured way of life, which is something I get when following a course. I like to know exactly where I am in my chosen job of work, so-to-speak, and I’m missing this with no deadlines to meet 😦

I admit to trying out a schedule of my own, but I can never kid myself that the world will stop if I don’t get ‘X or Y’ done, and so things fall by the wayside as I get distracted, with the countless things that come along as I try to write my daily ‘bit’.

I confess to feeling ever so slightly nervous at the thought of a completed degree, and I’m not sure what I’ll be doing to replace my constant studying once I achieve it. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to afford to at least do a 10-pointer each year, so that I don’t lose the impetus of studying.
There are a lot of science starters I’d like to try, especially as science subjects are well out of my comfort zone, so I’ll need to be on the ball to keep up with them 🙂

Another thing happening at the beginning of August, is the results of a short-story competition I entered a few months back. I had written my first-ever science fiction story, and it was the right length for entering, and so I did so.
I don’t know how it will go, but I do hope it’s at least enjoyed, as I had a favourable feedback for it during my A363 course, which is what I had written it for.

I’ve been reading science fiction since I turned 10, when I came across my very first Isaac Asimov book, and couldn’t put it down 🙂 I’ve progressed to reading a mix of Sci-fi and fantasy stuff now, but will never foget the thrill of my first book, I, Robot, still one of my favourites today 🙂

On that note, I guess I’d better get back to my daily dose of writing nonsense – and waiting for my course results . . .
