Hi, Hey, Hello!
I actually banked up a bunch of posts to write before I took my little hiatus and so I am slowly making my way through them and most of them are from The SITs Girls (May prompts if you want to get really technical). The thing that I am talking about today is about something that I am currently learning about at the moment.
Now, the thing that I am about to start learning about because I have reached the point where I can no longer avoid it and it now needs to be actually properly researched which means that I need to acquire more knowledge on it. The thing in question is mythology.
I’ve outlined everything and have written around 5,000 words or so but I have hit a massive wall. And that is because I have spent no time reading and making notes and slotting all the elements that I need to in order to actually progress any further than the 5,000 words that are currently mocking me in the document.
I have several books on the topic which I will start with to try get a foundation for it all and then I will build it all up and move on from there. I have a feeling that when I finally get something along the lines of a foundation then I will get more of my creative juices flowing and be able to actually add more words to this thing because I really want to do something about the idea and make it real but I’ve hit a stumbling block with it. Once I’ve gone through the books that I already have then I will branch out and build on the knowledge and try to get as rich a picture of it as I can.
There is going to be a lot of notebooks and pens needed and to be honest I am looking forward to it.
Then on the other side, which doesn’t really classifying as learning as such I don’t think, but I am looking into Masters courses. I entertained the idea quite seriously during my year of unemployment just so that I would have the ability to say that I had something to do. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do it in though and so the whole search was a bit aimless.
But then I got a job and pushed it to the backburner, but recently I have been itching to do one again and I actually now know that it want it to be one of two things. Either Shakespeare or Creative Writing, and I am veering more towards the first one. So I am currently also just going through the potential options that there are available in London. It’s been exciting and also slightly horrifying.
That’s what I’m doing though. Starting to read up on mythology and Masters courses.
