  • 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 […]

    My Writing This Week – Incorporating Writing Back Into My Daily Life

    Holly crap, you guys! I have been busy and I haven’t posted any blog posts this week. I’ve actually been working on a few “more useful” blog posts, but I didn’t get them finished this week. I’ve also been using my time to write more throughout the week, because I know when I start the […]

    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 […]

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 […]

    Application Fees – A New Episode of My Podcast – Equipment Test!

    I still don’t really have a good reason why, but I’m still making my podcast every weekend. It’s called Equipment Test! and it’s just me reading my short stories and talking about my blog. I figure I’ll just recored an awful episode every weekend while I’m alive and maybe in like 10 years it’ll be […]
