Updates, setbacks, and hope for whatever awaits
I'm so sorry your dream program was cut! And I totally get the writerly struggle you described so well. If you ever want some in-real-life company, we should get together....I'm in San Diego too :)
Sarah, I encourage you to continue pursuing what your heart is telling you. You are already an amazing writer and whether or not grad school is for you, I’m sure doors will continue to open to your beautiful life-giving words.
