Oh I'm totally not sane, don't worry. My partner has to keep dragging me away from this and the MFA blog. I just had one busy day where my other life took over.
Yeah that's the problem with applying ... you always know what you should have done after the fact. I wish I could change my writing sample in soo many ways, but it's too late at this point. Oh well. They'll get the point, and if they like it, they like it. If they don't, they don't.
I wish I could've gotten in together to apply to warren wilson, but a critical writing sample? I don't know how to write that -- I haven't taken that kind of class since I was in college in 2000. That's one of the reasons why I'm going to school. Creative writing sample I understand, but critical? I was also warmed that they're "more mainstream," whatever that means, but I think it means they're not big fans of experimental stuff. But I dunno.
Funny, too. I was born in Denver and lived there through high school -- in Park Hill and Englewood. It's so beautiful there. I miss it -- except for the dryness. I didn't like that.
