Some important changes have occurred in my life. In 2017, I graduated from Lesley University with a B. A. in Liberal Arts and a concentration in English. This experienced did not change me per se, but it woke me up to myself. I remembered who I am as an individual apart from all of the roles I fill. I began to use my gifts, recall my worth and abilities, feel the slow burn inside me which I then stoked and nourished back to a steady full burn.
I applied to an MFA in Creative Writing and was not accepted. So, I have decided to spend the next year taking opportunities to meet people and make connections and create opportunities for myself. To improve my writing, I am continuing to read and write, submitting my writing to a variety of publications for their consideration, and looking for writing classes and communities to sign up for and join. I will reapply the MFA Program in the spring.
It is my intention to share writing and my journey to the MFA Program in this space.
On a personal note, my children are now 7 and 4 1/2 and the joy of my life. Pierce (9 year old terrier mix), Lucy (8 month old domestic medium hair kitten) and Maggie (Lucy's mom) are in the mix, too.
