First semester is done

I survived my first semester as a Vermont College MFA student with my sanity intact. I wrote about 100 pages of my YA mystery. I learned more about narrative arcs, omniscient point of view, and effective openings to name just a few of the topics I investigated in essays. I also read 100 books for kids.

The one book I had the strongest emotional reaction to (other than the few books I thought were pointless and stupid) was also the saddest, Deborah Wiles's Each Little Bird That Sings. Deb is joining the VC faculty so I hope I get a chance to ask her how she could do that to the dog.
