Today I begin something very scary.
Something that seems to divide people squarely into two camps.
I’ve started an online writing course.
A paid-for online writing course.
This is not like the SkillShare courses I’ve taken, which for the summer I paid a whole dollar to take. But, rather, I’ve paid a bunch of money to take this course. Which, is really scary to me. I’ve paid a bunch of money to say:
Yes, I am serious about this writing thing. I’ve decided that I’m going to put my money and my time where my mouth is.
But, in the back of my mind I’m worried. What if I’m not actually serious? What if I can’t actually do it? What if I am an actual imposter – not just in my head?
I’ve never taken a creative writing class in my life. I love writing, but there was nothing I hated more in school than analyzing writing – meanings, themes, symbolism, etc. I stayed far away from English in college focusing on History, which was writing, but writing with research attached.
I used to love creative writing. Life has gotten in the way. I’ve said in the past that I’m writing my way back to myself.
I’ll check in again about this class in five weeks – the midpoint to give my thoughts – and then I’ll check in again at the end in mid November.
