To throw a monkey wrench into the whole thing, I've decided to take a writing course. Today I finished the first lesson in Sarah Selecky's Story is a State of Mind program. I enjoyed it. It was all about freewriting. I've mentioned the writer's group I go to, which is a freeflow group. So it was nice to start with something I'm familiar with. I found the practices and the assignment very interesting. I also like that the course encourages (requires) you to write away from your computer, in a notebook. I liked the readings too. They were both sad, but had a freeflow kind of feeling to them. I'm looking forward to more lessons and readings. Of course, I'm interested in the writing that will come out of this.
