Yep. I am unofficially starting my MFA. I still have to go through orientation when I arrive, but even being at the airport is a great first step.
Also, sorry for being absent, but getting myself ready to go has been quite the ordeal! I’ll do an update when I get back to Seattle next week!
Last weekend was a stressful one at that, and I was happy to get back to the normal routine for my writing. I have been writing at least 10 pages of new content a day. It’s not as much as I’m expecting to write once my program starts in just a few weeks, but I can safely say that am enjoying writing more now than I have before.
Before I was something I did because I loved it, but it always had to take a slight back seat when school and life got in the way. I spent a lot of my weekends just writing because I had the time. Now that I am going to school for writing I am much more driven to not only create a fair amount of work, but also try and create work that is of good quality.
I have a long way to go before I will think any of my work really outstanding, but I know already that this program will help me shape my writing into something that I know I will be proud to attach my name to.
I’m only writing about four hours a day now, and when I’m done I’m pretty exhausted, but I like knowing that even my the end of my first semester I will be able to so much more.
Anyhow, if you’re reading this, thank you.
I know I may not have really stimulating stuff on this blog, but having it as a place for me to share my revelations about writing is very helpful in the whole process.
