My world seems to be in flux at the moment, and
I must admit that I am seeking regular employment that doesn't involve
working on this project. I have, however, made continuing with this
project my personal goal. I intend to see it finished and published,
because I believe no work of Creative Writing is ever truly completed
until it is published. That said, I feel that no matter what happens
to this project, I have learned enough about how to put together
a book to keep me writing for the rest of my life.
Working with my mentor has helped me to reach a height of quality
in my work that would not otherwise have been attained. I believe
my writing has improved with the additional education provided by
UCI, and the writing in this book has been further improved by the
careful editing and suggestions of my mentor.
