Okay, been receiving lots of email asking for clarification. What do I mean I will “miss” Michigan? Am I leaving? Yes, I sure is. I’ve completed the MFA program and a year of full-load teaching. I am heading back to Austin, the only place on this planet where I truly feel at home. This won’t happen until late July or early August. I am not going there for any practical reason, I only want to take a year off from working and teaching to concentrate on the new novel (which is going well) and on revising my short story collection. These are my goals. I will possibly end up spending the year revising several hundred bottles of Lone Star and seeing bands and swimming at Barton Springs. But a little fun never heard nobody’s creativity.
