Did the big girl thing and called Vizio and the Sheraton people. Once again, the Vizio customer service representative told me a higher up from corporate will be contacting me within forty-eight hours. We'll see. I don't have much faith in the system at this point. Also I went back and looked so see exactly how long I've been having issues with my computer and the first email I officially sent them was on 10/11/13. Over a year ago is when I started having trouble. It's pretty sad that I bought this computer specifically to help me through my MFA and I've used it for that purpose about... hmm... three or four months out of a two year program. Shitty. Anyway, someday my computer will come. Or it won't. We'll see.
The call to the Sheraton people was much more successful. They got me put over to the Pine Manor College rate of $113 a night versus $199 a night. That will be split three ways between Hannah, Eileen, and myself so it will actually be quite reasonable. I'm excited for January and for Boston and for late nights in the dorms doing tarot readings and drinking. And I'm excited for graduation! But to get to that point I have to keep on trucking on the creative thesis.
I wrote five pages single spaced last night and I'm decently happy with them. More to come tonight and then I have to spend some time stitching it all together. I think my Mentor was right when she said that this is going to be a long ass book. My creative thesis isn't even going to tap into the real meat of the novel. This is all the lead up and I'm finding it to be incredibly illuminating and helpful. I'm getting to learn a great deal more about my secondary characters as well as creating a better rounded protagonist.
Tomorrow I have work but this weekend is going to be another binge writing session. I will get this damn book finished! And after I am done with my MFA I am going to piece it all together and create something I can be truly proud of. Or at least that is my hope.
