UP!–for You or Someone You Know–COLLEGE APPLICATIONS made EASIER!

GradCap-writersideupOK, so “College Applications” is not exactly a “writerly” subject unless, of course, you’re going to major in Journalism or English Literature 😉

As you may recall, my Writer Side UP! blog has a “sister.” I still have a lot of set-up to do on both blogs and am far from posting in any systematic fashion, that is, IF I am ever truly systematic about it. That work is going to take some time, BUT meanwhile—there are subjects that are coming up and things I want to offer that are somewhat timely, so I’m putting up actual posts before my pages are filled in!

It will be a very rare occurrence when I will “double blog” the same information. That will only happen if the subject matter truly belongs on both: here for lit-related and there for creativity-related. At Creativity Cookbook, I’ve set up a “HANDY MISC.” page for just that—the handy miscellany.

Creativity Cookbook-Avatar-300dpiFor anyone who is applying for college or knows anyone who intends to apply for college, I have put up some very useful charts that may help with the process. They helped us, having originally been created when my son was at that stage of his life. Now that I have blogs, I have an outlet on which to share valuable information and I feel it would be truly remiss of me not to share these. So, please, if you’re not already following Creativity Cookbook, head over there to check out my post on “COLLEGE APPLICATIONS made EASIER! Tools for you…

    • Thanks, Paul 🙂 It’s the charts that, to me, make the process easier. I do hope these find their hands into young college applicants. I never went to college so it was a new experience when it was my son’s turn!

  1. I checked this out and will be passing along the information to my daughter, a hopeful English major. Whether or not she uses it … she is being very stubborn about this whole process. Grrr. Seventeen year olds know best, don’t they?

    • Dianne, I sincerely hope the charts help her feel less overwhelmed because there’s no getting around it–it’s an overwhelming, stressful, tedious project that carries a lot of weight. And, of course, she probably wants to spend time enjoying her last year of high school with friends. All of it’s understandable–still, it’s unavoidable, no matter how much she wants to avoid it! To me, things like charts and lists enable focus and control. Plus ANYthing that saves time and makes a task easier is a good thing 🙂


  2. Good idea, getting good information out there…alas I know nobody off to college or university but if I come across anybody or just overhear someone talking I will give them your site address because that won’t seem weird to them at all! I like to be memorable though.

    • Ste J, you make me laugh 😀 You may hear of someone who can use these charts and will be glad you can offer help, wise guy 😉

      See, the way I’ve always looked at it is, if something can be made easier for someone and I (we) have a way to help that happen, if I’m able, I’ll do it. I can’t tell you how many charts I’ve made, whether for myself or for organizational purposes for big events, and over the couple of years these blogs have been slowly forming, I’ve figured out the ones that can be “put out there” for others to utilize 🙂 I just hope, at some point, they’ll actually reach the right people! lol
