 I went to the Albertus Magnus open house on March 1st with my mother. Finding a parking space and where the open house was taking place was a challenge but we got there in time. The MFA person who came to meet us with nice and answered all of our questions. Though some of the staff might be unfamiliar with genre work, they were open to it and they clarified some of the admission policies rules that were important. For example, one thing to do was to write about my “Writer’s Journey.” There’s a book with that title but they actually meant what are the influences that formed my writing style. That should be easier than rushing through a long book and giving my reaction to it. My influences are mostly those from different story mediums, so that’s going to be interesting.

Judging from the meeting with the MFA director, they are okay with that kind of thing. I had a talk with her this Wednesday and she was pretty friendly, explaining the program and working toward a completed novel manuscript by the time I graduate. She indicated my genre preferences wouldn’t be that odd among those in the program. My writing’s pretty solid from her perspective even with the occasional grammar mistakes and that wouldn’t be a deal breaker when I submit my application to them (Though I’ll still have that looked over). At the beginning of April, I’ll have to cut back on some of my writing time in order to tackle the essay about my writing journey and influences. I’m aiming to submit everything by May and the word count is between 750 and 1000 words, around three to four double-spaced pages, so it wouldn’t take too long. However, I want to get started early so I wouldn’t be scrambling at the last minute. I’ll get a quick response, so one way or another I’ll know if I’m going to graduate school this fall.

Fic talk, and spoilers for Kong Skull Island and Digimon Universe Appli Monster )

That’s all I can think of for now. In the meantime, see you!
