And then one day, I got in

I’d heard about Clarion, about the boot camp for writers that takes place each Summer in San Diego.

I’d read about some of my favourite authors like Neil Gaiman and John Scalzi teaching there.

I had literally dreamed about getting in. (That particular dream was a gruelling interview, followed by Wipeout assault course which  I totally killed by the way.) For a few moments after I woke up I believed I had been accepted. I was crushed when I came to.

It seemed… unobtainable… other.

In a pipe dream moment, I applied.

And then one day, I got in.

 

Roll on June 24th.
