Sorry about the inactivity, I'm a very busy M'efer. I'm now working part time, and focusing majority of my time on grad school applications. It's a ton of work.
These Grad school writing prompts are pretty interesting. The one I'm working on now is:
Two very different people get stuck on an elevator on New Year's Eve (3-5 pgs)
It's pretty interesting because you can do so much with it. At the same time, it has some easy traps. Right away I'm eliminating the falling in love scenario, the drunk girl hook up, the 'are we going to die?' thing, etc. And at the same time you don't want your writing to sound like a bad joke. A priest and a prostitute walk into an elevator! LoLz to follow!
Anyways, that's my life right now. Thinking about stuff like that. Fun, but a lot to think about because this is the stuff these schools will use to determine if I'm in or not.
By the way, a few schools want me to send in different creative samples. I'm going to use some blog material (along with other projects from advertising, school, etc). Is there anything that you, some long-time readers, would suggest I include? I've pulled a few that I enjoy myself, but I'm interested to see if anyone else has any suggestions.
