At the North Carolina Writers' Network Conference...

I'm so inspired! I'm feeling affirmed as a writer, and believe that applying to MFA programs for next year is the way to go. I have SO MUCH to learn -- and I say that in a totally non-self deprecating way. Plus, two very critical ideas came to me while I was participating in the classes: a way to correctly structure a story I've been suffering overAND the opening to my MFA application letter (the answer to "why I want an MFA" and "why I want one from you -- rather, the U).

The pieces in my life are coming together. I have structure, I have joy, calling, purpose...I'm more than "not depressed." More often than not, I'm feeling good. Still working out some kinks, but "more often than not" is still miraculous.
