Here we go again.

So with my school semester coming to an end and my impending three months of slightly less responsibility coming up in May, I'm hoping to pick up a new writing project. And, once again, it is going to be a fresh project. I have several big fears in my life but one that has always been in the top five is this: to never finish a (writing) project I've started. This summer, however, when I 'start' this project, it is technically one that I have started and 'ended' many times throughout my life. My idea is to write out my journals into my computer (something I have always wanted to do, and only this time am I starting to try and formulate a way to combine this task with my desired new writing project).

So my homework in order to facilitate this new writing project is as follows:

1. Check and see if there's a way to link Scrivener with Dropbox. If so, this will be beneficial when I do my next homework assignment.

2. Take photos of the pages of my journal with my iPhone 4. It takes decent photos, especially of up close things. But I'm worried that the pages might be a little too large to get the whole page in one photo and still be able to read it.

3. That brings my next homework assignment to my iPad. If the photo takes on the iPhone 4 but is still too small to read, I'm hoping it'll be legible on the bigger screen of my iPad. Then maybe I can use my iConnex bluetooth keyboard to write out the pages in My Writing Spot on my iPhone 4. (I don't mean to be name dropping, but I'm hoping these specific terms make this blog 'searchable' considering I hate writing for nobody but I'd rather be 'discovered' haha).

That's about it for now. The writing project will be something along the lines of a new 'My semester abroad' and 'My sophomore year of college'. So there will be a new 'My [time of my life]' for each journal. I might group some together depending on their lengths. I will also add in commentary as a 'looking back' or 'if I knew then what I know now' kind of thing.

So that's my summer writing project idea. We'll see what happens!!
