  • I Got Accepted Into An MFA Program for Creative Writing

    I Got Accepted Into An MFA Program for Creative Writing

    Today’s post is super late! That’s because I’ve been having discussions with myself, friends, and directors of MFA programs. I got accepted into an MFA program and I’m still figuring out the details, but I’m excited. It’s Lindenwood University’s MFA program in Writing. I’ve been talking to program directors for a couple of days, thinking […]

  • 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. 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 Don’t Think My Patreon Was Working

    I Don’t Think My Patreon Was Working

    A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was trying to utilize Patreon by showing early drafts and stuff. Well, it wasn’t really working the best and it was also making it super hard for me to keep enough stuff for myself to work on. For those reasons, I’ve basically axed the idea. I think […]

    Knees – Short Story

    Here is this week’s short story, “Knees”. If you like my fiction, please buy a copy of my fiction collection, Crushes, available on Amazon in Print and on Amazon Kindle. Knees Mark drove as straight as he could after Betty pulled over when she screamed at the deer in front of us. We all laughed. Mark […]
