Most exciting thoughts and a little bit of blood

Rachel and I will now be using this blog as a venue for our most exciting thoughts about literature. Yes, we do have exciting thoughts about that mighty and nebulous aether of literature. Why? Because Rachel is a new MFA student and I am a new MA student.
M.A. Me and M.F.A. Rachel

We're about to lead glorious lives filled with leaves, spines, drafts, hand cramps, and (last but not least) paper cuts (hence the blood in the title of this blog post). To relieve the immense pressure of this glory, we are going to discuss our favorite things on this blog: children's and young adult books.

This coming summer, our focus will be Victorian and turn-of-the-century children's books, as part of our preparation for a class on the Victorian era. We are looking forward to writing book reviews, reader reactions, interviews with the dead, and other fun things! What "other fun things" would you, gentle readers, like to see on this blog?

  1. I would say fewer hand cramps. Serves me right for being a writer AND a knitter.
