One week from today I will be leaving for my last residency at Pacific University. Barring any unforeseen meltdowns, I will have my thesis review, deliver my critical introduction and graduate with my Masters in Fine Arts. I can't believe two years have already come and gone. But in that time I've learned more than I thought possible and made some of the best friends, colleagues, and connections I could have hoped for. The first ten chapters of my novel are truly something for me to be proud of. I worked my ass off to get them into shape.

It's been an absolute blessing to be a part if this program and to feel a part of this community. And honestly, I don't think I'm ready for it to be over.

And here are a few links to my other outlets (shameless self promotion to cultivate my ecosystem):
twitter: @drewattana
instagram: drewromance

Please follow me if you are on any of these, and maybe you'll get a laugh or two from my daily ridiculousness.


While this blog will still be tracking the progress of my novel, I will also be posting about my interests, my future endeavors and general "best-of" lists. Basically, I need an outlet and this will be it. I hope you enjoy. Looking forward to this new year. #OwnIt
