Entangled is Lurynne's book. It's a story that's been on the back burner for a while. I have several drafts of the book written out but have never been satisfied with what I wrote. Something has always been off. I'm not sure this draft--the one I'm trying to revise is going to work either. I may simply not be ready to write the book. It's not time for me to play with it. But the book--both of Lurynne's books--dominate my mind. They want to be told. Being in the MFA program may be exactly what I need to get the story down in a satisfactory way.
What do I need to send in for my first packet? The following:
- A 2-3 page cover letter discussing the enclosed material and asking questions about the material
- 35-34 pages of fiction--excerpts from two novels
- 2-3 short critical essays
- cumulative bibliography in standard MLA format
- cumulative list of titles of original creative work included in packets
The cover letter is mostly done. I need to finish working on Entangled, otherwise the fiction pages are done. I have one essay written. I'm reading the book now so I can start writing the second one. I still need to do the cumulative lists.But I think I have enough wiggle room to get everything done on time.
Thank you to everyone who's helped me by editing my pieces, sometimes multiple times. I'll be working on packet 2 soon, which will be even harder to put together than this first one I'm sure. Let me know if you're interested in reading new edits. For packet two I plan on them being part of a different section of both books. So you'll get a break in that area.
