Hey there. So, I am considering whether I should be writing more. I have been teaching this year, and that has been going fine, but I’m not sure if I want to find a way to pursue writing, too. I really enjoyed the process of writing Someotherville, and I think that I might want to go into an MFA program for writing. This is questionable, though, because it’s a big risk. I don’t know if I would get in, I don’t know how it would go. Do I have another novel in me? I think I do, but I don’t know what it is yet, so I’m not sure whether it’s the right thing to do. The first one isn’t even published – yet.
Do I have the kind of dedication that it would take to commit my life to writing? I think that I do. If I set things up right, if I was in a position to have time to write, I would certainly write. I had planned to write this summer, but the summer was too sad. Waiting and hoping for Jay’s dad to get well, and the fact that he didn’t, well, that kept me from writing and from finishing my M.Ed. I plan to finish my M.Ed. in the next two months, and then after that??? Who knows – keep teaching high school? Or turn my life upside down in a mad attempt to be a writer. I know which one sounds more appealing… a little adventure, a little risk. I can go back to teaching if I need to – and don’t get me wrong, I love teaching, but I love writing, too. Guess I have some thinking to do.
