Found out that one of the MA programs I'd planned on applying to as a back-up plan is actually only a PhD program. Don't want to do a whole PhD yet. Blah. That leaves three. Plus I'll probably apply to the PhD one, anyway, since I do already have the materials. But on the other hand, it costs $75 to apply. Double blah.
Current resolve is to write for at least half an hour every day. More if possible. So far have managed, though it's not enough--have only gotten four pages done in the last three days. Will try to up it to an hour as the schedule allows.
