Abstract:My career at the University of Hawaii has consisted mainly of reading 16th-18th century British Literature and writing critical essays. After five years of this kind of work, I couldn't conceive of doing another longer one, so more than a year ago now, I chose to do a creative writing project for my senior honors thesis. I wanted to learn something new-to challenge myself. I did just that. I had no idea how difficult this project would be. Working closely with my advisor, I learned more about creative writing than I ever wanted to know. I mistakenly thought I would just be recording my thoughts. No way. I recorded my thoughts, and then worked up a draft, and then began a long and drawn out revision process. I started with about 150 pages and then got down to about 40 and then got back up to 80. I have been re-writing and re-writing this draft for months now, and while it is finished, it probably will never really be finished.
