But I know now I won't get my Master's degree.
My life is on a different path than it was then. I know what I'm doing and where I'm headed, and I don't need a Master's degree to get there. I have the career I want. I don't need further education to get or keep it.
I am living my happily ever after.
Since that's the case, a Master's degree would be a very expensive piece of paper that would hang in my office. Nothing more.
For what I want to do, I could get the same (if not more) from going to a local writer's conference or joining a writer's group or interviewing published authors.
So instead I'll just keep reading and learning on my own, and that will be good enough for me.
