I don't recall if I mentioned it or not, but in my ongoing quest to improve my writing skills I enrolled for a course in Advanced Fiction Writing techniques. My first class was yesterday and I think I'm really going to be enjoying this. It's an on-line course, so I won't have serious problems when I attend my annual conference in just a couple of weeks, but the topics cover those things that I find myself wrestling with, and the other students seem to be a good mix. We'll see, but so far so good.
I didn't get time to beta my friend's latest chapter, I'll do that tonight instead, but at least I did get some work completed on my day off as well as a lovely phone conversation with Aearwen. It's always so fantastic to get a chance to speak with her. We have so many things in common and the time just flies. I've never been much for phone calls, but somehow without any effort we talk for one hour or more. It strikes me that there are so many people I consider friends and acquaintances that I never knew a few years ago. Count me as VERY happy to share my life with both my physical and my on-line friends.
