Blogging used to be a habit, something I did.
Needless to say, I am out of the habit.
Lately I have been writing but not blogging. I signed up for a wonderful course, a do-it-yourself MFA. Oh sure, a lot of it could be learned by reading the book of the same title. But paying for the course gives me
- motivation to get my money’s worth out of it
- writing peers
- an interactive experience
I find this relaxing (I have a day job, so no financial pressure to get that draft done), and the process has taught me a lot. No one will give me a bad grade for not keeping up with the class, either.
As I write, I realize that this site will change. What has been primarily a source of information about kidneys with a pediatric focus will now include other stuff. I may start pitching that children’s book about my cat with kidney disease again. I may post bits and pieces of other works here.
I hope you go along with me for the ride. It should be fun. And I hope I get around to putting a few more words on the internet!
