Never Fading Wood

Why did I choose this name for my blog? Because it is one of the many titles for Our Blessed Mother. It is also somewhat poetic and I am deciding whether or not to pursue an MFA in writing. For this same reason I post under the name Lily. Another title for the Blessed Mother is Lily Among Thorns. It is in honor of her that I choose the name Lily to sign as my own on the internet.

I'm somewhat surprised that I've decided to join the bloggers in cyberspace, as if I didn't have enough to do already! But, I feel that writers should practice their craft and I need to see if anything I write is portfolio worthy. In order to apply for acceptance into an MFA program for writing, you must submit a portfolio. All I've written in the past is lost for various reasons. This is an experiment of sorts, to see what I can generate, and how easily the words come through my brain and down to the keyboard.

Please comment. Whether you like what I wrote or not, tell me why! Be specific, the only rule is to be courteous. I'm looking for honest critiques and would love to hear your thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by and please return often to see what is going on in the Never Fading Wood!

I almost pursued an MFA in writing! What a delightful possibility that a mother of many children would still be able to return to school for her MFA! You seriously inspire me!

Thanks, Katherine! I have no idea if it will come to pass or not, but I thought I needed to try. That is why I'm trying the blog, so thank you for the encouragement. It has been so long since I've had any feed back or even tried to write anything that I am enjoying the process again!
