What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”

 

While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

MFA vs. NYC: The Two Cultures of American Fiction

MFA vs. NYC: The Two Cultures of American Fiction - Chad Harbach I was curious about how getting a job as a writer works, or at least how writers get trained. In the end, it's a debate about whether or not grad school is necessary. It seems like being a writer of fiction might be the last profession where it's not strictly necessary, at least according to a few of these essays. The debate is interesting, even if it isn't totally settled in this collection of essays for and against.

An intriguing read, even if it didn't totally apply to me.
