Recently in the Life of Jen Chandler

-Creative Writing class threw four (FOUR!!!) poem forms at her and demanded that she recreate each form before Sunday

-Said poem forms are being a pain in the butt

-Creative Writing class also demanding ONE short story, ONE collection of stream of consciousness writings, and ONE completed portfolio by next Friday

-Said class also demanding a 10 page term paper on E.A. next Friday

-Christmas is looming and Jen braved traffic, crowds and staying up far too late to write poems and stories to purchase Christmas gifts

-Jen returned home unscathed

-Jen is now working on installing antivirus software, sipping Earl Grey tea with Irish cream creamer and trying to ignore the fact she has three more poems to write by Sunday

So. What have you guys been up to?


  1. I love stopping by your blog. You are truly awesome and inspiring and funny and you have a big 'ol crazy cat so you must be pretty freaking fabulous. Your post made me laugh and it was a laugh I needed.

    Thank you!

  2. P.S. I LOVE the pics you have at the top of your blog!

  3. That is a lot of writing due in the next week!

  4. Well, you're not bored! Maybe you could write a poem about braving the crowds and traffic and wrapping gifts in the wee hours of the morning? Was it fun writing about Poe?

  5. Sitting on the couch...glad that I don't have to write poetry. :)

  6. Nothing near as exciting as you. Sick kids here so not much else gets done. Hope you survive. :)


Well, hello! I'm so glad you made it. Come inside and sit by the hearth. I'll take your coat and hat. The kettle is singing and there's cake and candles and good conversation. Settle in and make yourself at home. Don't mind the wolfhounds; they're friendly if you give them a bit of lemon curd.
