  • The MFA Residency

    The MFA Residency

    Blogging is actually kind of hard. I’m tempted to start over every few years. My interests change over time. So do my opinions. I’m not consistent. Sometimes I declare I’m going to do things one way, then I do them another way. Years ago, I wrote a blog post complaining about a boyfriend, or at […]

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

    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 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 […]

  • I Applied To Four MFA Programs

    I Applied To Four MFA Programs

    I applied to Four MFA programs. Just Four. I probably won’t get into any of them, because they’re MFA programs. But, it’s a lot like submitting to literary journals and lit mags; you just sort of apply anyway. I didn’t want to apply to all of the MFA programs in existence or anything – there […]

  • I’m A WGU Alumni Ambassador

    I’m A WGU Alumni Ambassador

    I received an email a few days ago. I’m now officially a Western Governors University Alumni Ambassador. That means I get to travel some and help with WGU events and also answer questions about college from prospective students. This is pretty exciting. I have wanted an education gig for a while now, and while it’s […]

  • I’m 1000% Terrified of the Dentist

    I’m 1000% Terrified of the Dentist

    First, I have a bit of good news. I’m finished with all of the work in the MBA program and am waiting for my degree to be conferred. That means “official”, or whatever. So, I’m hoping that any day now I will get an email with instructions on how to obtain my graduate degree diploma. […]
