Another one?! 15 February 2019

Why do you need a second master’s degree? This is a question I’ve been asked more than once. Why am I taking on student loan debt at this point in my life?

My last ten-week capstone course is in week six right now. I’m piecing together all of the learning over the last two and half years as I’ve slowly pursued this degree in Professional Creative Writing. Before I began at DU, all I knew was that I wanted to learn more about being a writer in some kind of writing program. I applied, sent in my writing samples, and was accepted. And so, it began and has been incredible.

Why? Because if I hadn’t, I’d be longing to still. Because I needed to study, learn, write, and belong to a committed community of writers. Because my sister told me that our mom would have encouraged me to go for it. Because from day one of class one, I’ve been hooked, enthralled, energized, challenged, and completely at home with where I started and where I am now. More to come…graduation in June.

  1. That is so cool! I am also in the middle of an on-line class through a virtual Abbey in Ireland. And we will be finishing our Certificate in Spiritual Formation with the retreat we are leading next weekend for our church leaders.

    Exactly! I love to learn and, with roughly three weeks left, I’m already feeling like “Okay, what is next on my list?”
