As an MFA student, I spend a lot of time writing, even when I’m not in actual writing classes. Even though most people don’t realize it, we write every day, whether it is an e-mail to coworkers, a blog post, a list, or a letter. Here I hope to have a collection of posts about writing: pieces that inspire me, samples of my own work, and even some of the trials and tribulations of writing.
