A Tremendous Load Off My Mind

I guess Joyce Carol Oates was trying to tell the graduates at Mount Holyoke who didn't win any awards that all was not lost.

'"Very few writers of distinction in fact were outstanding as undergraduates," she said, noting William Faulkner received a D in freshman English; Cormac McCarthy was asked to leave the University of Tennessee because of his poor grades;'

I wish she'd been the speaker at my college graduation. Oh, wait. I didn't go to my college graduation.

By the way, Joyce Carol Oates has written children's books so I'm not just filling space here.

Well, yes, I am.

Thanks to Blog of a Bookslut for the link.
