A year ago, Freshman Me started this blog about writing things. And more recently, I got my article, The Undergrad Novelist: 4 Tips For Writing in College, re-released under Stepping Stones Magazine after being approached by its publisher. I was understandably excited about my first officially published work (!), but came back to the article with new, suddenly somewhat disenchanted eyes. The advice I had given as a Freshman was no longer big news to Sophomore Me. As of this past year, I would say I have learned more about myself and my writing than I did during those two drafts I am now currently editing.
Quick summary on that: I am a dual-enrolled college student, honor society member, and a History major as of two years. I am also the mother of two and a half novels in the Faire Curiosities trilogy, which is making its share of waves around the interwebs. I have been writing in college since I started school in 2014, and continuing chronicling these adventures as I get better at this balancing act I have chosen to preform.
So, in yearly fashion, I bring you the sister sequel to my popular article, and four more ways to make writing in college a little easier.
