Into the Fire
Tomorrow, I embark on a journey I never thought possible. I will be teaching a writing class! I'm very excited about it, but I'm also a little nervous. I've never considered myself a teacher. I've taught children's Sunday school and church, not adults, though. It's a new world for me!
My students will be people I work with. Perhaps not directly, but we all support the mission of the incredible ministry we work for. I've had nine sign up, which is nine more than I thought I'd have. I'm really blessed to have this supportive atmosphere for my first teaching experience.
I'm kicking off the class with the philosophy of writing. We'll discuss why we write and some other general thoughts about the craft. I'll share this concept in blog form in an upcoming post.
And while I know I'm not off to fight in the French Revolution, the gentlemen in the cast of the Broadway version of The Scarlet Pimpernel seem to know a bit of what I'm feeling. Trepidation eased by the confidence of the call. Courage through something bigger than me. (Plus, it's a great song!)
