One Thing I’m Looking Forward To…

My first residency in the Seton Hill MFA program is next month, and one of the things I’m looking forward to (besides the fact that it’s a week of focused writing immersion), is the featured speaker for the residency.

Donald Maass.

I’m excited, not from a fanboy position, but just from an industry angle. I’ve seen his books around for a couple of years, but used this as an excuse to finally break down and buy most of them… if nothing else, there’s a “How-To” reading component for the “Term Writing” plans that we’ll have to prep, so now I’ll have some new books to read (instead of pulling an old one from the shelf for a reread).

The first books arrived yesterday, and the rest are due at the house today… things look interesting, so far.
