MFA graduate

Yesterday on June 29th, 2013, I received my Masters in Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing for the Stage and Screen from Lesley University. After two years of work and obstacle and improvement and self-doubt and self-confidence and everything else, I convinced some pretty smart people that I kind of knew something about this whole writing thing.

I'm glad I did it. I think I learned a ton-- both about writing, and about dealing with difficulty and struggle, both personally and creatively. I think both will serve me well in my future. And I guess I kind of hope that having the piece of paper that says Masters on it will help me out in the real, non-artist world a little bit as well.

Before you ask, I'm not exactly sure what's next. I at least need to finish up the show I'm working so that my schedule is open enough to accommodate something new. I have to figure a number of things out. But I am sure as hell going to keep writing. I've had some small success even amid a ton of frustration, and it means enough to me that I'm going to keep working at it. I even have some ideas about where I'm going with that writing at least, if not necessary in the larger sense of my life yet. :-)

I am educated. Congratulate me!
