Why I Went M.I.A.+ MAJOR UPDATE!

Hello everybody! I know it’s been like a month and a half since I last posted. But I had a good reason why! Around the time of my last blog post, I found out I was a finalist for a writing fellowship. Paranoid, I shut my blog down because I feared the panel might see […]

My New Job + Agent Rejection

I’m back! I know it’s been a few days but I’ve been so tired adjusting to my work schedule. It’s a 10min walk to the train station, a 40min train ride, another 10 minute walk to work. In the blazing sun. I sweat a lot so I have to change into my work clothes when […]

I Got a Job (but I’m not happy)

Query Update + Depression

Since my last post, I received two rejections from agents I queried. I gotta be honest, they don’t sting at all when you’ve got 5 fulls and a partial out. I’ve also gotten a crap ton of rejections from jobs and agents this past year so I don’t really care anymore. As far as the […]
