I just wanted to share that I got accepted into medical school! :banana: (Mods please delete if this is not cool)

I've been working my butt off for years for this and it's finally happening. I was rejected for two years in a row before being accepted to my in-state school this year. Words can't express how great this feels.

How it relates to writing...I feel like if I could climb this hurdle, I can do anything. I've shown myself that I can persevere even in the face of overwhelming self-doubt, frustration and exhaustion. I can finish my novel. I also have a fire lit under my butt now, because school starts in August and I won't have much time to write then. It's crunch time, baby.

Congratulations!!

That is one heck of an accomplishment. The thought of med school (or medicine, or surgery in general) scares the bajeezus out of me, but somebody has to do it :)

Good job persisting through those rejections -- I don't know if I would've had the heart to. And good luck with your time crunch in finishing your novel!

Write on!

Congratulations, Stephanie!

I guess that means no writing for a while, though. :(

Thanks everyone!


Congratulations, Stephanie!

Quite the contrary, that means it's crunch time! School doesn't start til next fall, so I have just under nine months to finish this thing I've been pussy-footing around with for years. Don't think you can be rid of me just yet! :D

No, no, no - first, you need at least $1000 worth of tests. Then you refer to a specialist. Then, and only then, the Tylenol.

Excellent! There is a fine tradition of physician writers, including Chekhov, William Carlos Williams and Khaled Hosseini. May you continue it one day.
