Answering the Call
Oh, my stars and whiskers! Today, I was asked to take on something I've been putting off for a long time. I've considered it in a couple different career paths--both theatre and writing, but I never really wanted to do it. But I'm now jumping in with both feet...
Starting in August, I will be teaching a weekly hour-long course on writing a novel.
So...what are you thinking, you ask. Yes, I am asking that myself.
Someone from my place of work approached me and asked if I would be interested in teaching this class to staff members from various departments. I am honored and humbled to even be asked! And of course, the opportunity to pass on what I've learned...I am overjoyed!
But wow, what a responsibility.
I am thankful to have a wealth of resources. I know many writers here in town who can contribute, and I also have my fabulous folks at Pikes Peak Writers who offer such great support. I know I won't be doing this alone.
Since last May, I've been feeling a call toward teaching. I tend to butt heads with self-doubt. I feel like this is a good way to launch into it. See how I like it. See if I can do it! My dad was a high school and college level math professor, so teaching is in my blood somewhere. I'll just have to pinpoint that and go for it.
In other news, the physical copy of my latest release (Poison) just arrived. And I've accepted the position of Pitch Coordinator for the 2015 Pikes Peak Writers Conference. I'm super excited about working with all the fabulous PPW/C people again!
Ah, the writing life! Wouldn't trade it for the world!
