What is the date you began writing this piece of fiction and the date when you completely finished the piece of fiction? Well, I started the first story in the book in the fall of 1996. I would say that I finished the book in August 2017, when I did last minute edits and sent to my editor. I spent 6.5 years in an MFA program and a PhD program, so I was definitely working on the stories then, and throughout this 21-year span, but, clearly there was a lot of time spent not writing. So, I don’t want to scare anyone with this number of years.
