Sort Of Exciting

Just sort of bouncing around on the internet today, indulging in school fantasies (what would I do if I didn't have to be practical?), I found this: an MFA in Creative Writing and Book Art.

(sound of car screeching to a halt)

Really? Apparently this is the first program of its kind in the US. It's here in Oakland. It sounds pretty wonderful. My stomach flip-flopped when I read about it.

I've been thinking lately that I'd like to take a creative writing class, just something under-grad level, to see if I like it. I kind of like the idea of writing YA, and I've always like the idea of writing children's books.

It's probably very expensive.
But I can take it one class per semester.

It's kind of exciting to think about.

I might have to take that creative writing class sooner than later.

I have two words: DO IT.

A creative writing class is... amazing. I'm in one right now and I love it. Mine is an advanced seminar in poetry and if I can find a way to pay for it, I'm going to get an MFA.

If you get a good group of people, there's just nothing like that kind of support from creative folks.

Very cool. If you take a class you have to tell all about it!

I think it's too expensive for me... but I *am* seriously looking at a MA in Literature. Why the heck not, I mean really??
