Daisy, first semester, non-fiction.
Big siblings are the best. Even when they break a foot, they still look out for you.
You have to get up pretty early in the morning to get a hot shower in before breakfast.
Do NOT go near the sea wall.
Chuck Johnson is not who you think he is.
If you have a question, best to ask Mother Hastings.
You can get up at 10:00am to jump in the water on New Year's Day, or you can get up at 10:30am and run down to the water in time to watch your classmates do it.
It is possible to get a nap in somewhere between meals, seminars, workshops and readings.

Writing is a solitary act, but being in an MFA program is not. There is always someone to talk with, confide in, ask questions of and receive answers from, beginning at breakfast and lasting well into the evening social time. When the residency is over and everyone has gone home, we're still encouraging each other.
I'm a writer.
