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:

All my best,
