I haven't accomplished much in the past two days. I got a bit distracted online while checking out the goals for the other participants. I didn't get very far because you never quite know when you check out someone's blog where it is going to take you. As I came to the end of my studies for my Bachelor degree earlier in the year, thoughts of going on for my Master's degree rolled through my brain. Did I want to go on to get a Master's in Liberal Arts, Literature or perhaps creative writing. Which lead to researching MFA's and discovering there are a lot of folks who have strong feelings about them - pro and con. Just today I came across an excellent post by Eric Wyatt - To MFA or not and asks the question: “What do you want to do with the degree?". Contemplating the answer.
Which lead to thinking about perhaps just dipping my toes in the water and taking some online creative writing courses before committing to a Master's program. Plus why couldn't I just come up with my own private creative writing program like an MFA without the major expense. But where would I begin? So, a couple days back with the start of Round 4 of Row80, I dropped in on Gabi who has decided to join in the fun. Synchronicity. She just started DYI MFA - Do it yourself Degree in Creative Writing. *sigh* The first two steps take stock of where you are starting from and put together your reading list.That I can do. I love the blogosphere!
Round 4 is off to a rockin start - check out the party here.
