As it turns out, I passed my thesis defense. Four months of writing and stress and coffee, and the entire defense lasted roughly thirty-five minutes. Aside from a few issues in the wording of my abstract, there weren't many changes.
Almost immediately I started sending out perusal copies, hopefully someone will pick it up and want to play it. Meanwhile, I've taken it easy the past three weeks as I wrapped up the semester and, you know, graduated. I'm hoping to get back to writing in the next few weeks now that I have my summer schedule set. I think another piano piece is in the works. Or perhaps a string quartet. Suggestions? Send them my way.
