I wanted to give you a quick introduction before I start posting on the blog. I'll get to more in depth stuff later but I've been at work since 5:15 a.m. (I'm a Starbucks barista) and I really just feel like showering and maybe trying to get some writing in before I go back to work.
I'm starting the MFA program at Adelphi University in Garden City in two weeks. I'll be studying fiction though I'm taking a playwriting workshop this fall which should prove interesting.
I studied journalism as an undergrad and am currently a sports reporter at a local paper. I thought that journalism would provide a more stable workforce but if you check out my blog (justsurvivingmfa.blogspot) you'll see I was very wrong.
I'm a novelist. I've written one young adult fiction novel (unpublished of course) and I'm working on a general fiction novel right now. I've also written a novella and numerous short stories.
I'm really excited to start my program though after getting my books ordered, I am definitely a little concerned about the amount of reading and writing I'll have to do and work two jobs but I guess I'll figure it out.
Anyway, I'll be back later at some point to post something a little more interesting but in the mean time check out my blog: Just Surviving.
