I earned my stripes

Bootcamp is officially over. I’m exhausted and possibly dehydrated. I ate a lot of almonds and chocolate covered things. I mean, a lot. One guy said to me, “Every time I see you you’re eating.” Thanks!


But I also got a lot done. A draft of a new short essay, drafts of two stories I started earlier but couldn’t seem to finish until now, a draft of an article with advice for creative writers on the academic job market (spoiler alert: don’t drink a bunch or be annoying).

I know there are people out there writing a lot faster and producing a lot more, but all that in a week for me? Good Jesus.
