I left my writing job and entered the Master of Fine Arts Program at the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts, Whidbey Writers Workshop in January 2009 to learn how to write fiction. I wanted to write a novel. My program required me to write a “publishable book-length manuscript” in order to graduate. This week, I received word from both my adviser and second reader that my novel–two years in the making, really, a lifetime in the making–is publishable. The working title is The Road to Indigo.
Also, this week, my writer friend, Claire Gebben, “tagged” me to participate in The Next Big Thing, in which I’ll tell you more about The Road to Indigo.
Thanks for reading my first blog post.
Oh, yeah, and my name is Sandra Sarr
