This Strange Blend

I took a few days off this weekend to experience the whirlwind that is college. It was grand. Better, in fact, than I expected. Which scared me just a little.

But I return to my writing trying desperately to recall how I felt about such-and-such particular scene. What I intended Jenn to do when thus-and-so happened. My story-telling head just feels so very fuzzy.

Or maybe my College Girl hat is just too heavy to remove. And to put my Writer hat on top just makes it worse. How am I going to juggle these two? How can I blend them together, become the girl who is majoring in physics...and writing young adult fiction? I don't know.

I don't know. It's not a time issue. It's a focus issue. How do I be me, this strange blend of academic and artist? How do I exercise both sides of my brain, keep them both in shape?

I don't know. But I know that there must be a way. And I know that I'll find it.

Crikey, girl. You don't do stuff by halves, do you? :)

It'll just take time to find your slots. I'll pray you find them fast. That's... that's quite a task you've set yourself.

Now, go forth and write. And do...whatever physicists do.
