Almost two years!

Ok.. So it's been almost two years since I last posted! Yikes.

You might wonder what I've been up to. Well, lots of writing, but not fiction! I started a doctoral program in Fall 2016, so all my words to go my faculty.

There are a few things that have been interesting about this whole experience (aside from never watching TV or reading fiction, and the sharp decline in my social life). For one, I'm much less daunted by the prospect of a dissertation than many of my classmates seem to be. A dissertation is generally 100-150 pages, which just doesn't actually sound like that much to me. I'm sure it is, in practice, but I don't panic about it the way my classmates seem to.

The other is that because I write SO much for school, whenever we have a break I find myself with the writing itch - BAD. I've built the habit, which is awesome. So I'm kind-of hoping that with this next break I might channel that itch into actually writing some fiction. It will be interesting to see if I can do prose'y writing anymore, or how much practice it will take to get back into it.

I'll let y'all know! ..or maybe I won't post again until I get my degree. We'll see :)
