My name offers two potential jokes to friends and family.
1. Nik (and because I'm bearded and inept) as in Dr Nick from the Simpsons.
2. Jones (and because I really, really want a fedora hat) as in Dr Indy Jones - Yes I know, his real name's Henry, but still.
Now for these jokes to be truly successful I need a better Prefix. Mr is OK. It's fine, really. No offense to all those Misters out there. But I want something more. Because, for these jokes to be really, truly successful. For me to really get the most of my name, what i really need. Is A Doctorate.
Oh yes. Dr Jones.
Of course, I could just buy one. I realize that. And it's not as if I'd ever really use it, so it's an option.
But if a joke is worth doing, it's worth working hard for.
So that's what I'm doing.
I'm doing my MA.
Then I'm going for a PhD.
Then I'm buying a cape.
And a Fedora. Obviously.
Jokes aside though this can only be a good thing. It's a Creative Writing MA. It is impetus to write. It is pressure to write.
It is an excuse to write.
I. Need. This.
Already I've got my first mini asignment done. Comes in at a nice, neat 500 ish words. In script form. It's a description.
I'm trying new things.
Thought so. It's proper mint, how.
Sooooooo. This means new work of Disco Kettle - I've descaled him. This means a new role for my Magic Writing Dressing Gown - I've washed it.
This means new and exciting ways to avoid marking - so i've left it all at home.
S'gonna be fun, like.
