Back to School

Have you heard?  Several weeks ago following a rush of blood to the head I signed up to a course to improve my fiction (and any other) writing skills. And then I convinced Chris in Kitchener Ontario to join and she in turn convinced Donna, who seems to live sometimes in Mexico and sometimes in Canada. Well it seemed like a great idea at the time.

But now the countdown is on the course begins on Monday and it’s so long since I studied anything seriously.  So things could get a little hairy over the next few weeks. I don’t quite know what to expect but it will no doubt be a great learning experience.

Meantime, I am still swanning around on my extended holiday in Tauranga where the lovely weather continues and I am thankful that I live in this bountiful land.  We are far from the strife raging around the world but I hope we are not lulling ourselves into a false sense of security.  Terror and terrorists can strike at any time as we read and hear in the media. We must be vigilant even in our little corner of the world.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”  Benjamin Franklin

  1. Best of luck with the course. I think its an exciting thing to be doing. I’ve recently joined a couple of writing groups and I feel the same kind of trepidation. As to the violence in the world, we do seem to be drifting back into some kind of “dark ages” so any day of sunshine and beauty we enjoy should be treasured I agree

  2. Good luck, enjoy learning 🙂

  3. Oh, good for you! I bet you’ll really enjoy the class.

  4. Enjoy the class, I know you will. Exercise for the mind is always good.

  5. And then Chris mentioned the course and I went to see and registered! We will all sink or swim together!

  6. Enjoy your writing course! I hope you learn exactly what you need to know. 🙂
