Counting down...

Five more weeks until graduation! Originally, I tried to graduate from college at 19, but now it will have to be 20 and 2 months. :) I'm not attached to my college and am thrilled to be able to spend a year writing before I go to graduate school. I'll probably take classes online from UCLA Extension or UCF's Certificate in Professional Writing until I get into grad school. (Any great program recommendations, anyone?) It's also exciting to have that time to work on my current MS, write a new book and do the zillions of other writing projects I've been dying to do. I was whining a bit about going back to school tomorrow, but 99 percent of the time, I'm a nerd. I love school, love to study and enjoy learning. I'm just ready to take a break for a bit...

UPDATE: RAW just e-mailed! She said she lost my number and told me to call again. I'm doing that ASAP! :)

Oh my god and you're proud of me for a silly word count? Graduating at twenty - and having a literary agent under your belt - is something to be extremely proud of, which I am. :)

That is so amazing! That year off sounds great! You'll be able to focus on your upcoming book and the rest of your writing.

How awesome. How very, very awesome. :D

I have to agree with Ella. You are quite an inspiration. You are one of those driven people that I need in my life to keep me going. :) I think you will do great with a year off. With many people, you assume they would get off track, but with you, you know that won't happen. Good luck! :)
45k is amazing, Gaby. It's more than most people ever write! Of course, I'm proud! :)
I'm so envious of you. An entire year to write! Oh what I wouldn't give to have that luxury!

EEE, Jess, just saw the update! You must keep me very updated, missy. And thank you for your confidence, it's been an amazing help! :)

An entire year to write. See, this is why you are my inspiration. I'm only a year and a half older than you, yet you've gotten a million miles further than I have.

Someday, my dear, I'll catch up. Until then, you'll be one of my heroes! :)
