All I want....

... is this cinnamon chip muffin....

This is the worst kind of craving to have when you're trying to eat right. Still... me want!

Short Stories....

So, I'm about to start writing a new short story. I told so many people that once I finished my MFA it was highly unlikely that I would ever write a short story again. In the last five months I've made that prediction come true. However, a good MFA buddy and I have set up a short-story swap. One rough-draft of a story due every two months. I think this is a good thing because it will keep my literary-brain in practice. That's not to say that the novel I just finished isn't literary--well, it's not... yet--but I definitely write a little differently depending on audience. Maybe I shouldn't. Regardless, I'm scared and excited for this swap because he's an amazing writer who's gonna keep me on my toes. I hope to learn a few more things from him.

In other news... I still haven't found a job (meaning a "career"). I need to get my Maryland driver's license so I can maybe deliver some pizzas or something. 2011 is just beginning, but it better have some great things right around the corner.

New Year New Goals

Happy 2011 people!

Here's wishing everyone a great and prosperous New Year. I haven't made any resolutions yet and I'm not sure that I will (since I tend to drop the ball every year and then become very upset). Instead, I think I'll come up with several little goals. Two of which are to start a new writing project and begin editing the novel I just finished. Other goals I hope will come along nicely.

Happy New Year!
