Hello, Internet! I'm gonna go ahead and call this past week an "almost" week. That's how it feels, for most of my goals set in my last post. That's not particularly disappointing for me. A new class started this week for my MFA, and I'm adjusting to the change in workload. My last class, a seminar … Continue reading Weekly Update – 2/7/18

Weekly Update – 1/10/18

Hello Internet! New year, same me. I've given it a whole 30 seconds of thought (lavish, eh?) and decided that YES I do still enjoy doing these posts this way, so welcome to another year of me blathering words onto a screen and then screaming them out into the Void. As usual, I'll be blabbering … Continue reading Weekly Update – 1/10/18
