Writing Class

I just registered for a Creative Writing class. It's my first one, and I'm excited, and a little nervous. It will meet each Saturday for 2 hours, and last 6 weeks. The best part is it is taught by an author I've met, and I really like her books: Annette Lyon.

The class is about an hour drive from where I live (maybe a little more), so I would not have signed up was it not for the teacher. I know she will have a lot to teach me, and I look forward to the personal growth and development in my writing.

I also had my first chapter-meeting tonight, as an official member of the League of Utah Writers. I visited for a couple months, but tonight I was there as an actual member. I'm going to the Sandy chapter named Wordcraft.

Next month is their annual writing contest. It has to be short, only about two minutes, so everyone will have time to read their entry out loud. The topic is "Beginnings", so I'm going to have to get started on my brainstorming, and come up with a great beginning.

As for my WIP, I'm getting closer. I have about 2-1/2 chapters left. Am I crazy for hoping to finish up on Saturday? Wish me luck.

I suddenly have stage fright . . .

I'll do my best to make the drive worth your time! I'm excited you've signed up! This will be fun.
