Where does the time go?

By Casey Tolfree

Hey bloggers!
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 I've written one young adult fiction novel (unpublished of course) and I'm working on a general fiction novel right now.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.



  1. Hi Casey, I picked up the books for 2/3 of my classes last week and I'm a little freaked about all of the reading too. And I haven't even picked up the books for class 3 yet! Welcome to the blog.

  2. Yay! Great to have you on the blog!

  3. Oh the MFA reading! Let's just say that's what weekends are for :)

  4. Awesome--glad you're here. I love short stories. Do you write short shorts?

  5. Short stories aren't really my forte but I can write them. I love novels and sometimes I just write until it ends and it usually ends up pretty long, novella-ish length.

    I'm excited to be a part of the blog. I've been looking for a community of writers for so long!

    Will post more soon but actually working on the novel now- yay!

  6. Nice to cyber-meet you, Casey!
