I know it makes me a jerk but my first question is this: you have the ability to get two degrees…

Her undergraduate degree is in English and her MFA is in creative writing. Given the oversupply of these degrees, it’s not surprising that she’s been a freelance writer for seven years and doing the odd jobs for cash-in-hand.

In lean economic times, there’s just so much competition from people with business and technical degrees and backgrounds for people with English and creative writing degrees to get commercial jobs. Obviously it can be done, but it’s difficult.
