So, now that the thesis is somewhere off in the void, the next project is to complete the "process paper." This is a 10- to 20-page essay about my journey, influences and development as a writer both during and previous to my MFA experience.
I've been stuck so far. For one thing, it feels too much like filling out a self-evaluation form. For another, how can my influences be quantified? Everything has been an influence.
Maybe I should just work my way backward and stop when I hit 20 pages.
