Clarion is killing my writing career

I'm kidding. Kidding! Love me, Clarion!

It's just that i haven't really written a word since i got accepted into Clarion. I've lost my ability to rewrite or even mail out stories. Sheesh!

Part of it is this sort of false expectation (i'm putting on myself) that now i have to “step up to the plate” and “produce quality.”

I have images of Kelly Link (who is, by the way, my favorite author ever, seriously, ever) reading one of my stories and being like, “how did this guy get in here?”

Then everyone will pat me on the head and say, “that's ok, you always have your music… oh, that's right, we've heard that too… awkward.”

Ok, it's not as bad as all that. I'm just trying to take every opportunity to obsess, so i can get my full value from the program.

Maybe i should just go back to stressing about how i'm going to pay for this thing.
