Hello all! If you remember, earlier in the application season, I asked you all what you were doing to cope with the stress of applying and MFA Blog obsession--and how you'd stay fulfilled as writers throughout the process. How is it coming in the heat of deadline season?
Last time I posted, kaybay embraced the all-consuming drama of the season (Good for kaybay!) but suggested sending work out to journals as much as possible, and Bryan agreed. Katie Oh set out to explore her college town while she still could. Jaime's hitting the gym, and new poster E.T. is expanding stories from the all-important writing sample into a larger collection.
Perhaps most ambitiously, Blob declared a self-imposed NaNoWriMo when response season kicks off in February. Will anyone join Blob? I think it's a great idea, and--since I'm in a fiction workshop this spring (with phillywriter, woot!)--I just might join up, too!
Give us an update, or add your two cents! How's it coming, gang?
