The countdown is on

One week til my MFA submissions are due. AHHHHH! I have SO much work to do this week. I need to come up with a new schedule to make sure I get everything done. So here goes:

Monday (today): work on 1st person version of story. Hopefully finish first draft.
Tuesday: Proof and finalize submission for pedagogy elective.
Wednesday: edit story. Think about: themes--are they brought up early and effectively? Scene--Is every scene fulfilling its purpose? Sentences--is there good rhythm? are long/short sentences used for a reason? Word choice: be careful of repitions.
Thursday: Proof and finalize reading critiques.
Friday: Proof story. Write cover letters. Mail packets!!!

MFAers--do you know if we're supposed to have our stuff to our advisor by the 6th, or is it OK to mail it on the 6th? That would give me a much-needed extra day. :) Best Blogger Tips

Hey Bug, not sure about that...my advisor is accepting everything via e-mail (same with our inter disc, right? David wants everything e-mailed, yes?)

Good luck--your schedule looks good...you'll get it all done. Believe!

Hi Bug. Mine was emphatic that he wants it by the 6th. I guess it depends. Maybe a message to your supervisor just to be sure. TI

Thanks TI. How was your holiday??

Considering the 6th is a Sunday, I'm sure there's wiggle room with snail mail. My teacher wants them emailed so I can't really say for sure.
