Oh, ye of little faith, take it easy. It's not the whole stash I'm giving away, just a few nice bits of it.
It's not an "I'm a loser" give-away going on here; it's a celebratory one.
I finished my draft. That's right. I finished one entire, complete draft of my dissertation. That's a novella and three short stories. And I'm finished. Woo-effing-hoo! I may graduate from this program before I turn 40 after all!
Since I'm so freaking happy about this, I'm going stash diving later today, and I'll find three fantastic skeins to share with my lovely, encouraging readers. How to choose, how to choose?
Here's how. Tell me what your dream is. The one you could see yourself achieving, but just haven't been able to start. Believe me, I know about not being able to start on dreams; it took me about ten years to get up the courage to apply to MFA programs, and I'm so grateful I got the nudge I needed to do so. Here's another option. Did you get a nudge that worked? Are you heading confidently towards your dream? Tell me about that.
I'll select three stories and award them with skeins of yarn from my stash. It won't be the cashmere from Rome, but I promise it will be good.
