Things continue to progress on a number of fronts. I find myself more interested in undertaking business projects and nonfiction ones. I enjoy fiction very much, but as it’s said, one cannot live by bread alone. I think having a variety of material and styles help keep one flexible and more in tune with the world in general. There’s a joy in discovering a fact that supports your argument, or fine-tuning a paragraph or particularly pithy line.
Since leaving my MFA program, I’ve wanted to get away from the ivory tower and back into the world a bit more. There’s so much out there, and it’s nice to know that many people will read your words, not only a few in a particularly niche discipline.
So….I’m going to embrace the changes, and see if the world around me doesn’t change a bit more for the better in response!
