I'm currently finalizing my first packet of work for my second VCFA semester. It's the first time my new advisor will see my work. Obviously, I have no idea exactly what she will be thinking as she receives the work. We talked at the residency, and I understand her expectations, but they are still different expectations than my last advisor. Those expectations are intimidating. Not a ton, but still, it's always hard to leave an area of comfort (an entire first semester with an advisor I worked well with) and move to something new.
During the residency, many people talked about our own individual writing voices. It seems to be a fairly universal view in both the VCFA and greater writing communities that staying true to our own voice is paramount. So, new expectations or not, I guess all I can do is write to the best of my ability and that has to be good enough.
