Exciting Writing News!

Well, I have finally decided to take the plunge and change my life! My writing life, that is. I have enrolled in Holly Lisle's "How To Think Sideways Career Survival School", and I got in just under the gun. You see, she won't be letting anyone else sign up to be in this course until next year because she wants to be able to " have the time to get involved in discussions" and "to brainstorm with students". She also wants "to play an active role in each class that comes through" and "to be relaxed and present on the boards". I think that is a reasonable request as well as an added benefit for anyone taking the course and I can't wait to dive right it.

I started exploring everything just yesterday, including downloading all the materials she has for us and I don't mind telling you how excited I am. I started reading the first lesson and I had to go get my husband and read it to him! I don't remember ever being so motivated about my writing before and it's as if my mind has become a sponge. Holly Lisle is a great teacher and she seems to know where to help you tap in to your subconscious mind—your Muse—to get it to come alive. Imagine: me, actually having a Muse of my very own!

Thanks, Angie!

Sorry I've been away so long. My husband hurt his back at work again--really bad this time, and he's been out of work for at about three weeks now. It's so hard for me to see him like he is--he can't even stand up straight. Please pray for him!

Yes, that course is AWESOME! I can't say enough good things about it. And I really think that it's going to help me with my problem of actually finishing a novel. I have a bunch of them started, worked out and I even know what the endings will be, but I have a problem getting them done. What's up with that? She said she'll be able to help me--and I definitely trust her!

I'll talk to you soon,
