What was I thinking?

>> Monday, February 05, 2007

I just realized that I've signed up for three online classes this month. I did that frequently last year, but promised myself I wouldn't do that again.


How did this happen?

Poor planning, as usual, I suppose.

I've got:

Practical Chemistry: Poison, Procedure and Worst-case Scenarios via KOD's Murder One.
I was thinking this would come in handy in revisions to Tangled Webs which has a villain with Munchausen by Proxy.

When Everyone Stares: Presenting with Pizzazz via KOD's Killer Instincts.
I was looking ahead for this one, anticipating the promotional arena I may (will) find myself in one day. And it could never hurt to have more confidence speaking to groups, right?

Sex Between the Pages: Understanding and Writing Sexual Tension via Carolina Romance Writers.
IMO, sexual tension is right up there with conflict -- can never have too much. But keeping it up (pun intended) isn't my specialty, so I'm ready for some advice. And I've taken a class with Mary Buckham before -- great teacher.

I may bring you a tidbit of wisdom or two from these classes this month, so stay tuned.

And wish me luck.

What are you doing this month to advance your writing?

Just reading and writing. There's a great workshop I want to take next month, though!

Have fun with those; I'm jealous!

Oopsy, I just remembered! I'm taking Feng Shui for Writers this month. Gosh. I need a brain pill. :-)

Oooo, Feng Shui for writers. I'd love to hear about that. Make sure to let me know what you think!

Now I feel like a slug. There was one class I wanted to take (can't remember which one), but I decided against it. I plan to finish my wip in March, and don't want anything to slow me down.

I know I could archive the lessons, but I'd probably end up participating.

LOL, Edie, I usually start by participating and then wane because I'm too busy. :-(

But the wip is important...when you're on a roll, you're on a roll. Get it done while you can! :-)
