I just submitted my first big assignment for VCFA. All in all, about 50 pages worth of stuff: a letter, an autobiography, an annotated bibliography of all the books I've read, two essays, a picture book draft, and an excerpt from a middle grade novel. Wow, it doesn't look like much when it's written in one sentence like that, but I've really been busting my butt.
Off to do more reading. The next packet is less than a month away!
