I’m Going Back to College

I’m going back to college. I signed up for a creative writing class called “Blueprinting Your Novel”. Of course, I have read a pile of books about writing. I’ve read and studied so many I think I could teach a class on how to write a book, or better, how to tell a story.
Why am I doing this? I’m looking forward to a time of learning and exchanging ideas with people like me. We are so rare; people actually writing books and not just talking or wishing. Also, and I know this may sound silly to a lot of people, I’m looking to gain some credentials, something to add to my resume and not just, “I’ve blogged a lot,” or “I wrote a short story for a college class once,” or “I’ve written about 2 million words and backspaced a million times,” or “I’ve read Larry Brooks’ book Story Engineering.”
It is my hope to get several of these under my belt. I hope, at some point, to be able to take one of David Farland‘s courses. I just missed one here locally. And, I’m a reader of his Daily Kick in the Pants, something I recommend for all writers.
EDIT: The class was canceled. Now I have no class.

  1. Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d
    like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
