If you haven't seen my last essay in the Chronicle, you'll know something of my relationship with the SO. I guess I should work at it more. I've been hard to live with lately.
I'm also working on an assignment for home decor magazine and will hopefully come up with a story about lowbrow art. But that's after I apply to grad school for my MFA! I've decided I really want one!
Anyway, I wish you all the best in the coming year! Keep writing!
