This time next week (the 17th), I will have—hopefully—handed in my End of Module Assessment and as such have finished my Openings course with the Open University. If not, it will mean I’m sat at the keyboard, brimming with worry, as I try to get those last few words to fit properly on my assignment so that I can submit it.
Hopefully it won’t come down to the wire, I’d really like not to be trying to force the words to flow at the last minute, but only time will tell.
You might wonder why I’m not working on it right now, and writing this blog post instead. Well, truth be known, I struggle to work on the same thing for more than an hour—ninety minutes tops—before my brain fizzles and nothing of use comes out. So to avoid mental shut-down, I’m having forty-five minutes to just chill, and thought I’d share these times of impending worry with you.
I’ll be glad when the course is over, though. I’ve enjoyed it mostly, though some parts were really not to my liking. December seems so far away, knowing that I’ll have to wait until then to find out if I passed or not, and if I can register on the next course. I hope I do, and I can; starting work on BA in February certainly sounds like a very positive beginning to the year, while leaving me December and January to recover from NaNoWriMo and further polish my book.
Well, time to get back to work. Good luck to everyone who’s doing their EMA’s.
