My thesis has been submitted! I have a good solid start on my short story collection of intertwined stories. Here's what my professor had to say about my work:
Hi Amelia, thanks for your hard work this term. I'm really impressed with the way this is coming together. You've really built a world here--and as unf amiliar as it is, it comes alive to me. I'm so impressed with the way you're able to create life out of the long-gone past, people who seem modern and real even if their moment was decades ago. I feel that you've really imagined your way into the characters' lives in these stories, and your imagination and largeness of heart come through.I'm thrilled! He's also given me some great advice for editing once I finish the first draft of the collection!
