Hey all, I'm new here at the Writing Forums. I'm a CW major at University of Wisconsin, and I'm having some issues balancing my other schoolwork with my writing. I'd love to go to grad school after I graduate (Fall '14), but I'm finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on my other classes while giving my creative writing class the effort it deserves. For example, yesterday I planned to devote the entire day to a project I'm working on in my Romantic Autobiographies class, and of course, as soon as I sat down I felt wildly inspired to write this story I've been putting a lot of thought into recently, and ended up spending the next eight or so hours focusing on that. It's so hard to find a happy medium. Do any other CW majors have any tips for me? I would certainly appreciate it.
