Even though it’s just in Penn State’s literary magazine, I’m bragging. :] I just love seeing my name in print. Kalliope‘s release party was on Wednesday, complete with open mic and free copies of the magazine. I now have multiple copies of the book in my room to show everyone in my family! I’m really proud of this story; I wrote it last fall for my intro creative writing class, and it’s one of the few pieces I can look back on and not hate, as self-critical as that sounds.
But what can I say? I’m a writer. And writer=perfectionist.
Our speaker at the release party was a PSU grad who’s in a creative writing program at another university now. He read two short stories, and of course I have a compulsive urge to start new projects now. Things have been crazy with school lately, and the inspiration is sporadic at best. Hopefully this summer I’ll have some new stuff to post here.
Thanks for reading!
