Accomplished in fiction: Having tromped around the 1905 World Expo in Portland, Oregon (words written over the weekend) and met characters both savory and otherwise, we’ve now come to see where Jefferson works: the Portland Hotel.
Accomplished in life: Did a little yard work, some emails, some reading.
Other: What we have here is a blog about (for now) the writing of my thesis novel. I’ll graduate this fall from Portland State with an MFA in Fiction writing, and then, well, who knows? First things first: let’s get this novel written.
