Too late now - I've paid the money and they don't give refunds. Gulp!
Enrolled myself on a writing course that is.
I know, I know. You're thinking "But Expat, you're a published author, who could possibly teach you anything?" Why thank you, but I've noticed that since I've started blogging, my ability to produce a decent-length sentence has diminished and my grammar has all but vanished. Me with my English A level and my Law degree, used to pride myself on syntax and grammar. But now? See what I mean.
So on January 24th, I will start an 8 week course on Creative Writing Fundamentals. I was a bit limited in that they only offered two day time courses (I can't do nights because I never know what's going on and who's going to be in to watch the Little Guy) and a lot of the classes were on fiction, which I don't want to tackle just yet. However, I chatted to the nice lady and she said not only was the class almost full, but that there was a wide variety of students signed up.
Now I'm going to worry till I get there.
We have to read things out to each other see. Although I have a book still on the market, which anyone can read and critique, I'm still not comfortable with the idea of people picking through my work while I'm sitting there in front of them. Bit silly really since anyone can read this blog and I write all over the place for the world to pull to pieces, but I can stick my fingers in my ears and sing "La, la, la, la, laaa" too. Not sure that will go down too well in class!
I haven't really made any NY resolutions but I'm deifnitely shaking things up a bit!
