The Next Step

Unhappiness with Travel Writing teacher aside, the break was a good time for me to reflect and write. I wrote a lot about possible travel writing paper ideas, and I came up with some good travel episodes to meditate on and see what good can come of them. I don’t think anything will as long as I have to “model” other authors, but I remain optimistic.

In other news, I am having a difficult time deciding what I am going to do next with my life. I know I want to go to the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, but I need to be realistic as well. I haven’t been writing a lot of good pieces lately. What will I put in my portfolio? Is the writer’s workshop the best creative writing program for me? What will I need to do to get into an MFA program? How will I pay for it? I haven’t really allowed myself to think past this semester or this year or this undergraduate work. I don’t have a clue what’s next for me.

I do know that I am feeling Colorblind and my other novel in progress, though.

Gotta go to class.

Once was blind,
Erica
