Thanks to Kristin who thought up this awesome blogfest, I get to write a letter to my future self!
Remember all those bleary-eyed nights reading novels and writing papers and discussions for your classes? Well it was all worth it! You got into grad school! You're probably back in Utah, interning for a publishing house as an editor and living your dream while getting your MFA. I can only hope that our friends and family believe that we're serious about this whole writing thing by now. Your husband should still be an awesome guy, no matter what profession he's chosen to pursue for who knows how many times. He's stood by your side through every hard decision you had to make. You might still be working on getting published, but you've stuck through the ups and downs. Congratulate yourself. You're moving on with your life and pursuing a career you enjoy.
Love, 2011 Natascha who is still suffering through those bleary-eyed nights reading for class.
