Keep the momentum going!

I got my grades for the fall semester and I'm a 4.0 in undergraduate and a 3.74 in my graduate studies.

I hope to finish my thesis this semester but I'm having an occupational crisis. The store manager at my part-time job wants to groom me for management. If I follow this track, in a year or two I'll be making forty to eighty grand.

On the other hand, my passion is writing and my desire is to go to get my doctorate. Doctorate programs are very competitive, but I've no doubt I can do the work. Following this track, however, means another four to six years of school, a whole lot of work, and a good chance at being unemployed for a time and if employed, making less than I would if I pursued management. In addition to this possibility is the stress of deciding between pursuing a literary or a creative writing program. I can do either.

On the other hand (this makes for three hands if you're counting), my professors really think I've got writing talent and a strong, unique voice. Their desire is to see me work towards publication. As you might imagine, it is no small matter getting a text ready to submit to a publisher.

I've got five roads before me and I can follow any path. I've got pressure from management and from professors and from the parental units. I really have no idea what to do, and it's too late in the game to be wrong. I have to make the right choice, but what is right?

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. CS Lewis.
