I'm taking a writing course for the first time in my life. I took one before, a "writing seminar," but that was only in name - we read literature and wrote papers on it like any other lit course. Now I am taking a creative writing course on fiction, and it is more fun that I could have imagined. I always dismissed fiction as something I could not do, but I think that perhaps I only need training. I've learned the elements of a story - a character with a strong desire towards something and an obstacle that stands in the way - and I am now working on a lesson on character development.
I may have my own biweekly or weekly column on an up-and-coming website. I should know for sure after this weekend. Crossing my fingers! :)
