I've been quiet here for almost two months now, but those two months have been packed with change and new beginnings. I've wanted to post here, but part of me kept holding back. I think I needed to withdraw in order to take some time to figure out my new routine, my new goals, my new life, and how it all fits together, but from here on out, I hope to make weekly posts here again. After all, I don't want to lose sight of my writing goals.
My biggest announcement is that in August, I found out I'd been accepted into a graduate program at the University of Chicago. I am so incredibly excited about this. It is a really unique program that prepares its students for teaching in urban environments like Chicago. The program is two years long and at the end of it, I will have a Masters in the Art of Teaching and be certified to teach K-9. I started the program in September and it is just as wonderful and amazing as I had hoped. I plan to write much more about this later, but for now, know that this is what has been keeping me too busy for words.
During my hiatus from blogging, I also had two new stories published. You can find my story Thin White Line in Issue #2 of Adanna. And my shortest publication to date appeared in a recent issue of Safety Pin Review. Happy Reading!
Now I am off to do some homework, but I'll be back soon!
