The MFA Life

It’s not official yet, but I did apply to an MFA program. And for the record, I can’t hear MFA without thinking Mafia Family Associates–so thanks NPR.

I’m excited about it. And I’m sure you’re wondering why I would want to go back to school after being in school for so long and I have to say I like what an MFA program has to offer. Plus, I like that having an MFA opens up my job opportunities to teach creative writing and not just composition. I didn’t like taking composition classes why would I want to teach them?

But more on the program, which connects you to published authors and publishing professionals. I still want to work in publishing and I still want to be a published author. So it’s a win win for me.

The added bonus of course is that my writing will improve even more. And hey-maybe I’ll stop posting blogs with typos. Ha, ha, ha yeah right.

Oh, so many things are happening for me right now, and I couldn’t be happier. Well, enough blogging for today (maybe), I have a book to finish.
