Residency – Day 8

The Residency is winding down and the pace has slowed a bit. What’s great about the last few days here is that you get to attend presentations and readings given by the graduating students. The talent in this MFA program is impressive and I find myself trying to make mental notes of the names of those students that I suspect will be getting published soon.

Personally I am eager to finish up and get home. Have completed all the reviews and paperwork so I’ll be leaving campus with no assignments hanging over my head. These ten days are stimulating (maybe too much so) and it’s a great atmosphere but nothing can beat your own bed, your family, etc. etc. I’m also eager to get cracking on my essay so I can refocus on writing short stories. Already have a few ideas bubbling in my skull…

Final craft talks in the morning then the graduation ceremony tomorrow night, with a dinner and party to follow, one last night in this tiny dorm room, then back to the Puget Sound on what promises to be a warm Sunday afternoon. Looking forward to wrestling with my Leo again!
