Moving Forward

Since I don't have a lot of time for writing, I decided to focus on just one thing -- the writing class. It's going well, I'm up to lesson five and I'm tweaking concepts I knew and used, but it's nice to see how far it can go without taking the next ten years to figure it all out myself. The biggest thing I'm learning is how not to kill myself before it matters. I'm leary to discuss actual class details, as Ms. Lisle has worked hard on this course, but suffice to say I'm learning some self control, which may go a long way toward using my writing time more effeciently.

So far I've gotten three really cool novel ideas straight from the assignments and can't wait till the writing can begin. :)

So I signed up for Holly Lisle's How To Think Sideways writing course, and dropped it when time constraints became too much. I've picked it up again, and have been working on the course material. I'm working through lessons three and four simultaneously (they work well that way, at least in my head they do), and I've got two solid thriller ideas. (Although I can't decide if thriller or suspence is the right word, I'll work that out later).

It looks like my brain was ready to start this up again. I just hope I can hold onto it this time!
