Last week I did a Time Management Tuesday post on using time during dry spells when you're not making sales. One of the things I suggested doing was studying, including the possibility of working on a MFA. I wanted to include a link to Karin Gillespie's New York Times' essay, A Master's in Chick Lit, but I'm embarrassed to say I couldn't remember Karin's name, so couldn't find the essay.
Seriously, I should be embarrassed not to have remembered her name, because we were both members of an on-line writers' community years ago. Karin had a blog at that time, which was what got me interested in starting Original Content.
Check out her experience with an MFA program in creative writing.
