welcome to the working week
After thought, I doubt I'll apply for the Stegner or Madison fellowships either. Too much, too much. After a certain point one's aesthetic becomes clear enough that the workshop environment is no longer helpful. I think I would come to resent people telling me what to do with my art, just because they're affiliated with a university that happens to be paying me survival money. This isn't to say Iowa hasn't been good to meI have learned much, much. But enough already. In sufficient concentration any food becomes poison.
