Tonight is dinner, packing. Tomorrow an early shuttle to the airport and all day flight.
Then, I begin work on an Integrative Essay of 8-10 pages explaining how this first residency contributed to my writing goals.
We've selected four books that I will use to improve my writing during the next semester. I'll begin work on the essays related to these books.
We've scheduled dates on which I will deliver 10-20 manuscript pages. I hope to write the first draft of the novel during my first year with Carlow University and use the second novel to polish and refine it.
In the next few days, I'll write more about my reading, writing, and exploration experience here in Dublin. Yes, it was work, work, work with little play, but also a mind-filling, challenging experience. Do I want more? Sure, will accept everything must come in steps.
