Insecure Writer's Support Group

Today's the first Insecure Writer's Support Group of 2014! Woo!




Tomorrow is my very first day of my MFA in writing for children's and young adults. It starts off with a 10 day residency (11 if it's your first semester) which includes readings and lectures and workshops and other awesome stuff I'm excited about.

I'm actually not really nervous at all. Anything I am nervous about is just logistics stuff, like lunches and dinners and whether I'll have time to work out in the morning before I go. But I know all of that will be resolved probably after the first day. 

Mostly I'm just excited to get going and meet a whole bunch of new, awesome writers.

I also have a friend from one of my classes last year who was also accepted to the MFA program, so it will be nice to know someone who'll be going through the same program as me. At the very least it means I'll already have one friend.

I dunno. I guess this isn't a very good insecure writer post, because I'm feeling pretty secure. I think. Of course maybe tomorrow morning I'll suddenly be nervous or scared or something. I guess we'll see.

But, because the residency is pretty much all day for 10 days, I won't be blogging at all until it's done. So I'll be on hiatus for the rest of this week, all of next week, and at least part of the week after.

Wish me luck!

Hey, if we were insecure all the time, we'd be a mess! Hope tomorrow is awesome.

I hope you have a great time with it. I'm sure the logistics will work fine and you'll be in a routine before you know it.

Oh, you'll have a blast, and it makes it more fun to know someone right from the start. I look forward to hearing about your experiences there.

Oh, congrats--I know you'll do great. Always nice to have a friend with you, too.

Yes it's me, not being too lazy to sign in and comment on the blogs I read. Just don't get too excited, you'll still see me on FB waaay more. (I know that excites you immensely. ;p )
