This is the Life of a Redhead

Thursday, February 18, 2010


I'm in a fiction workshop class again this semester. My short story will be critiqued at the end of March, but I've been thinking it over since the semester started.

I've lot a lot of my passion and motivation to write since breaking up with my boyfriend. A lot of my inspirational moments came when I was feeling romantic. I've always been an idealist, and being in a relationship elevated my unrealistic, unobtainable dreams for the starry-eyed moments I so desperately crave.

I guess I'm lucky I'm forced to write for class. Otherwise, I have no idea when I'd sit down and start typing again.

Here is the outline for the story I'm planning to write for class. It's vague, and it won't make sense to readers, but I figured I'd share it anyways.

Outline for Fat Maria (working title):

Tar Lake
Fat Maria's Wedding Laments
Ana & the Youth
Old Man
Rorschach Beach
Youth Exile
Fat Maria's Wedding
