It's been a while since I've posted anything about my writing life. So let's go! I recently submitted my second packet work to my mentor. It's my final semester and I'm writing my thesis now. It's a lot to think about, and the added pressure that this project is going to define me as I … Continue reading Writing Update
Residency Log: Day Seven
I sort of missed yesterday's log. We spent most of the day after workshop in the library doing some work. I plotted out the new parts of my thesis and I have a lot of things to do, but I have a new motivation for this story now. I got some great news this morning … Continue reading Residency Log: Day Seven
Residency Log: Day Four
We've mostly had the day to ourselves today. There was the option to go on the Tahoe Excursion to go into the city and do some ice skating and such.

Goodbye Julie. We're going to miss you. You'll always have a home with our tribe. You can come back to us when you're ready. We love you.

Right around the start of October, I went into a deep, downward spiral and my depression just wouldn't let up. It was … Continue reading Winter Break
We’re Almost There!
The semester is coming to a close a little too quickly for my liking; I've got less than two weeks to go before I'm done with my first year at SNC! It's a little strange to think about how I'm halfway through my MFA program when initially I hadn't even planned to attend one at … Continue reading We’re Almost There!
Reading & Writing & Surviving
It's October! I keep promising to keep up with this blog more, but I always end up crushed under a pile of other responsibilities that this ends up being the first casualty. So. I'm back! Maybe! So I was recently accepted in Sierra Nevada College's Master of Fine Arts in Writing for Children & Young … Continue reading Reading & Writing & Surviving
