Monday Off and Running

This is the beginning of a very busy week, but so fun. My tire has been losing air steadily. It's a slow leak, but a constant one. The tire is new - purchased slightly over a year ago - so I'll have to phone the company and see what they can do about it. I have a road trip on Thursday and I need this handled.

After my horrific fall last week, I saw my Chiropractor on Monday. Because he knows I have osteoporosis and I'm not a spring chicken any more, he scheduled to see me again today, just a week between the appointments instead of my usual two weeks. My lower back was really bothering me at the memorial service and open house, so I'll be happy to get another adjustment. My body will be happy, happy.

This pic is the new library built by Century College last year. I won't be taking classes
on campus, but it's a nice looking building.

And in my continuing quest to improve my writing skills I signed up for an on-line class on "Advanced Fiction Writing" that begins in mid-May, continuing through mid-July. I get two lessons a week and the class syllabus covered many items that I really want to work on - Point of View, tenses, character development, plot vs story, etc. I'm looking forward to it. Guess I'm involved in writing still - I would have never guessed this when I was younger. I wrote a lot, but never had aspirations to be a fiction writer. It's all good :-)

I'm really looking forward to it. I need some outside help - help that is not tied into my fanfic friends base. I think having an outside perspective will be helpful for my own original fiction goals.

I hope you have a great week, and a good chiropractor visit. And tires you can trust!

Maybe your body is not a "spring chicken any more", but you are surely one young girl! ;)
I'll have plenty of time to rest when I get older and less spry. So I try to maximize my efforts right now because I can. I fear I'll always be an old hippie, and hippies never die, we just compost away :-)

Sounds like busy times ahead! That course sounds like a lot of fun - and I hope your back improves.
I am really looking forward to the course. At the very least it will help me to further refine some trouble points that I have, at the most it will help me with some of the more difficult narrative structures that exist in good fiction. Either way it will be a lot of fun.
