getting ready

The next two weeks should be wild: Christmas, New Years and a transatlantic flight. The bags are working their way toward being packed, and the first night's accommodations are set—a lovely hostel in Dublin before trekking on toward Galway, where i'll be spending the bulk of the next six months. For those who stumble across this page or come here via, i'm a second year master of fine arts candidate in fiction writing at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale. Along with three classmates, i'll be roaming about Europe for six months as part of an exchange program with the National University of Ireland-Galway. I'll use this site as a collection point for stories, observations and other miscellanea as I explore, write, and roam my way about.
