Well, it turns out I didn’t get into the Southern MFA program after all. I knew they focused on literary rather than genre but from how the head of the program talked when I met him, they seemed flexible and I wanted to be honest about who I was and what subject matter I tackled. It turned out that I was apparently too genre to fit in the program. They said if I could switch my focus to literary, I could try again in another semester, but I’m not sure. Most of my ideas fit into genre, so I don’t know if the right decision is to grit my teeth and have to right in a literary style for a few years in order to get by in the world or be true to myself and go elsewhere. If I decide to not have another go at the Southern MFA program, that leaves limited options if I want to continue living at home. There is an online class that my Quinnipiac adviser suggested which I might look into. I never did online classes before, so I don’t know what they would entail. I would be strange to do things without being in the physical presence of an instructor. Still, first time for everything. Something to consider when the fall semester comes around.( Cut for fic babble and maybe some spoilers for Digimon Universe Appli Monster )
That is all for now. Less than two weeks after coming into office and our latest president has already shown he would be monstrous against all those who have been screwed over by the government and the rich. There’s going to be a lot of protesting in these four years, which would hopefully last beyond his administration, if there will be another administration. A lot of implicit evils that laid the groundwork for him were done in previous, more “respectable” administrations and would continue if another “respectable” administration comes to power. Hopefully, as a disabled working class person, I’ll survive these four years. In the meantime, I’ll continue to write and plan stories. Until next time, see you!
