In Which 2014 Was Awesome And Is Almost Gone

I can't believe we're already into December, and that Christmas is only a few weeks away.

Where did 2014 go? Wasn't it just summer?


But 2014 was a killer year for me. I landed and agent. I got a book deal. I started my MFA (which, honestly, was one of the best decisions I've ever made)

I'm officially done with my second semester. My next residency is in January and that will launch my third semester, which is when I have to write my critical thesis, a 30 page paper examining an element of craft.

I'm both looking forward to it, and dreading it. Looking forward to it because I want to write about monstrous characters.

Dreading it because I'm not actually looking forward to writing the paper. Or presenting it in the summer.

But, once it's done, that means no more paper writing for me! So that's another bonus.

But, also, my MFA is going sooo fast. Too fast, actually. I feel like the end is in sight, and that makes me sad because I love it so much.

So, what's up with you? Are you ready for the holidays? Utterly shocked that there's only a few weeks left in 2014?

You had a great year, and well deserved too!

Ours was kind of rough. We always knew Tank was living on borrowed time but it never makes it any easier.

Give your babies a hug for me!

It really HAS gone crazy fast, though at the same time, has crept a bit. Not sure how that happens. You've had a GREAT year, so well done.

Holy jingle bells? 30 pages? Well, I have confidence if anyone can do it, you can! =) 2014 was a kickass year for you, but I have a feeling 2015 will be just as awesome.

I remember writing term papers of 20 plus pages for each semester. This is why I don't return to get my masters degree.

I do not envy your work ahead. I don't like those sciency papers (for obvious reasons). But this has been an amazing year. Not the year I expected, but good and moving in the right direction. And hey, your book will come out in next year. How awesome is that?
