  • Knowledge Gaps

    Knowledge Gaps

    Knowledge gaps are inevitable at some point, no matter what degree you get or how much experience you have, I suppose. I finished my MBA in January of 2022. Aside from leadership theory and management courses, there were some practical skills that were thrown in as well. I had to do some data analytics work […]

  • My Thoughts On Twitter

    My Thoughts On Twitter

    These Are My Thoughts On Twitter For a few weeks, I’ve been sitting in the back row, watching my Twitter timeline and the blogs that blog about it. I don’t want to say anything about it. Businesses change hands all the time. Usually, it happens behind closed doors, or as less of a spectacle anyway. […]

    My Fall 2022 Semester, and Reasons Why I’ve Been Too Busy To Blog For A Few Months

    Wow, it’s been a whole semester. Well, give or take a few weeks. Sorry about that. The Fall semester in the MFA program started out kind of steady but then it got really intense this last month.

    I’m Reading Everywhere You Don’t Belong by Gabriel Bump

    This week, I used an Audible credit and got the audiobook of Everywhere You Don’t Belong by Gabriel Bump. So, once again, I’m being read to this week as I go throughout my day. I’m almost half finished with it. This might be one that I also buy the print copy of, because there are […]

    I Got Accepted Into the Bluegrass Writers Studio MFA Program at EKU

    I made a decision this week. I mentioned recently that I applied to some MFA programs for creative writing. I got accepted into one of those MFA in Writing programs a few weeks ago, and it was a pretty good option. However, I got another acceptance last week – the Eastern Kentucky University Bluegrass Writers […]

  • Books That Helped Me With My Writing

    Books That Helped Me With My Writing

    Last week, I applied to several low-residency MFA programs. While I’d LOVE to get accepted into one of those programs, I’m trying to remember that there are other ways to learn about writing literary fiction, too. The chances of getting accepted into an MFA program seem like they’re getting lower and lower these days, even […]
