I got my writing done painlessly today. Some of that is because I am procrastinating on writing my lesson plans and twisting my hair. Unfortunately, I can't share what I wrote online, but I will say that it was about Joi. Joi is a character who is in possession of a special journal that connects her to the future. This is the story that manifested itself during NaNoWriMo. It was great to reconnect with Joi.
I was told about a sci-fi writing class that is happening soon at The Writer's Center and I'm debating on taking it. Joi's story would qualify (I assume) for sci-fi, but speculative fiction might be a better title for it. The class is about sci-fiction, however, and not sci-fi poetry, so I'll probably end up using La'mia's story instead. La'mia is the story that was inspired by Sandra Cisneros's The House on Mango Street. The stories are nothing alike, but I want the vignette structure she has, plus the color of a mango has a specific significance through the story.
Time to stop procrastinating now.
