It was kind of appropriate that I was studying this course, and I can now call it a casualty. The Paradoxes of War course held at Coursera and created by Princeton University proved to be too much. I was already 4 weeks behind because of other courses, and it turned out many of the videos were so long, I’d have to spend an incredible amount of time watching them. So, I’ve stopped that course.
I am, however, working on the Richard III course, which is quite interesting. I’m also starting the French Revolution course this week, so I’m doing very specific aspects of both British and French history, both of them involving major wars (the War of the Roses and the French Revolution). These are the only two courses I’ll be doing through the summer, and no new courses until September. This is a good thing. It’ll give me a lot more time to concentrate on my writing.
One more thing that may be a casualty this month is What Will You Write? No submissions so far, and it’s been nearly a week. Camp NaNoWriMo has people quite busy these days, including me. I’m thinking of postponing the current round until August, so it won’t take anyone away from the camp. And once the new month starts, it should be much fresher for everyone. Any thoughts?
