Good Night, Blog.

Well, I’ve finally decided to put this blog to rest–I will no longer be making posts here or keeping the links current, etc. My MFA program is everything I imagined it would be (and more), and I’m devoting all my spare time to writing, reading, and growing in all manner of ways. This means that I do not currently have the time to give this blog the attention it needs, and I’m also ready to fully shed my psychologist skin and embrace my new identity as a career writer.  I feel so blessed to be a part of the special community of children’s writers at VCFA and am looking forward to another year and a half of packets, residencies, and blossoming friendships. When my MFA journey nears completion, I will be sure to revive my online presence–with a fresh, exciting platform to reflect the “new me.” 🙂

Thank you to everyone who has read my posts over the past few years–I hope you’ve learned a few things along the way, whether about psychology, creativity, or yourself. Keep reading, writing, creating, learning, seeking, growing, hoping, dreaming, and loving.

I’ll leave you with this:
