Two Months Into Grad School Update

Hello All,

Yes, it’s been a while.

I started grad school – so taking three classes plus teaching two sections of English 101. [Insert all the grad school/ teaching cliches here about work and balance and writing and ]

Publication Updates: I got another short story published. The research paper I helped write (and then ungraciously quit writing) in undergrad has also been published.

Both of these are projects I worked on and then forgot about a while ago, so it feels somewhat strange that they’re back and relevant in my life again.

This whole year has been weird. I don’t know if I’m any good at grad school, but I’m trying.

In the past few days, I was able to start a few new short stories, though nothing really catching traction yet. I’ll keep plugging away.

I’ve been incredibly depressed the last few weeks, but what else is new. Have a therapy session scheduled a few weeks from now.

One thing I’ve learned is that I love Henry James.

Scout is well.

It’s autumn here in Idaho and the Canada geese are honking their way south. It’s nice to be living in a place with seasons again.

I’ll be more informative and excited later. Or I won’t.

Much love,

LAF
