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 […]

Life Update: Career Change

I’m back! I tried to write a few posts in the time I was gone but I was afraid they were a little pessismistic. I spent a week at my sister’s helping with her new baby and it was a great experience. While I was there, I came across an article about a mother of […]

Two Kind Writing Rejections?

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 […]
