About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Butler Manuscripts!

It’s not very often that I get to crawl out of the dark forsaken cave that is pharmacy school and find a creative outlet. I’ve wanted to submit a piece to Manuscripts, our undergraduate literary magazine, since I was a freshman!

This year, I finally got around to writing something that wasn’t Star Wars fanfiction (I was hoping to find more hilarious thing in my cleverly-worded Google image search, but alas). I went with a topic that I know very little about but enjoy reading: war stories. I think it’s safe to call it historical fiction now? But anyway, I wrote the journal entries of a Vietnam soldier. I had the piece workshopped by Calliope Creative Writing Club, and I GUESS they liked it… :) So I submitted it to Manuscripts!

And I’m getting published! HOORAY!! I’m so excited! I’ve been stalking their Facebook page waiting for when they have updates about the release date. Then I’m going to hoard all the copies I can get. And snarl.

Yet ANOTHER fun thing to get excited about that isn’t my lab final tomorrow or finals next week. pleaseisitsummeryet.

The main character's name is Bruce. COINCIDENCE?
