365 days of being a writer: day 189

After the buzz-worthy last few days, I have to admit that I was a little bummed that no one called me today to offer me a spot in their program. But I'm sure that greedy attitude was because of the fever and stomach cramps.

Wait, let me explain. (No, there is too much, let me sum up.) Food poisoning. Bedridden. Trying to write. All day.

Why this sudden run of sickness? Ha ha, pardon the pun. Ah god, I'm achy.

I spent most of my glorious paid President's Day off--how's that for being a lucky bastard?--curled up in a fetal position. I think it was an errant carne asada burrito from an otherwise respectable restaurant in the neighborhood. When I could sit up, I worked on my lit crit piece and hung out with the other MFA hopefuls in a private group that's been set up on a popular social networking site.

I had hoped to have a rough draft done by COB, but that is not to be. Instead, I managed to finish a draft of the intro and first section, blurbs on the second two sections, and nothing on the conclusion. I have notes, quotes, and works have been cited. Can I say I am over a third done? I hope so. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to curl back up.

Hello! I followed your link from the MFA Draft thread. I love the idea of the 365 days of being a writer project! If I don't end up in a program this time around (again...) then I might just start up a 365 project of my own. Thanks for the inspiration and congratulations on all your good news so far this application season!
