(Full disclosure – photo has NOTHING to do with this blog post. I just loved finding this birdhouse.)
Yesterday I sent off my final assignment for my Fiction class and the day before, one for Creative Non-fiction.
I am heading into the final stretch of my certificate in Creative Writing. One more course then the Final Project. A little 20000 – 25000 word project. No biggie.
I’m loving this opportunity to write all the time. It’s a dream.
And I’ve learned so much. My classmates are kind and generous with their feedback; my instructors are supportive and clear in expectations; and, my writing is definitely improving from all this love and attention.
I could do courses indefinitely- and I will because this is a big field to learn about. But for now, I’m feeling capable. Capable of writing good stories, essays with meaning, and revising them without feeling that I’m in over my head.
So as we enter the last month of my year long blogging challenge to write weekly, thanks to everyone who has followed along. I’m glad you’re on the writing journey with me.
