I vow that I will no longer worry/obsess/daydream/e-stalk plans for after the MFA until after I have completed the 1st year of my MFA program. For this entire 1st year, I will focus on my writing. I already know what I'm doing after the 1st year...a 2nd year, so now is the perfect time not to worry.
I truly believe in Order. I believe this Order dictates that if I focus on my writing as a craft, if I work hard, I will be in the perfect position for whatever my next step will be. I will know the next step when I see it.
So I'm done planning my life 2-3 years in advance, at least for one year. This is the gift that an MFA program has given me and I will take it.
