To MFA or Not to MFA? That is the Question

I purchased The Creative Writing MFA Handbook: A Guide for Prospective Graduate Students by Tom Kealey today. Had to buy it online because I can't find it at any of the bookstores in my area so I'll be waiting a little while before I can actually page through it.

I don't know what this means for my future. I don't know if this means that I'm preparing to apply again (it probably does) or if I get accepted somewhere I will actually go.

But I bought the book. So that's the first step I guess.

The thing with postgraduate qualifications (and I say this as someone whose PhD has given me no end of trouble) is to be really sure about what you're getting out of them and why you're doing them. If you can work out the benefits as concrete things, there's that much more motivation. Good luck with it.

If you need an answer, I'll help you find one. Sat night? Sunday night? Eric's out of town. We can get loopy!

Every journey begins with a single step. I think yours will go just fine.

I hear ASU has a pretty good Creative Writing program.
Ah, God, my tongue is stuck in my cheek.
