PhD Exam No. 1: DONE!

Wow, that was quite a weekend. Four essays on the novel written, revised, and compiled in Word. Just before the noon deadline today, I sent them over.

My desk and the floor around it are piled high with books. 

Thank you to everyone who sent well wishings! It was very appreciated.

Soon, I have to do exam number two, also one weekend long, on contemporary literature (fiction, plays, poems). I’ve got quite a bit to read. But having done one exam, I’m feeling pretty good. 

Best wishes for all your creative projects,

      • That’s the way it is here in the us. You will be introduced as doctor at parties. We will be delighted to meet you and receive free medical care as we describe our symptoms, show you our rash, etc., will be perplexed when you tell us you can’t diagnose or prescribe. Peregrine. See if you can find blank prescription pads on google or use your printer to make some. Get some mileage out of being a doctor.

  1. Hey everyone, thank you for commenting and wishing me well. On Friday, I discovered that I had passed the exam with a distinction. Hooray! It feels like a great end to a lot of summer reading. Now, this Friday, I start the next one: on post-WW2 novels, plays, and poems.
