Yep, despite popular demand, my pops won't be at QN.
I have been thinking about this and perhaps it is a good thing not to get in. As my mother declared the first time I was accepted "Your head will be so BIG!!!!" And so I probably would have been all puffed up and thinking myself an "Art Goddess!"
I have calmed myself into thinking "I'm pretty damn good, but I can make better art." And so I will!
