It’s January 1st (Happy Birthday to me!), and my goal to become a better writer in 2012 is certainly off to an auspicious start. When I opened my birthday gift from my parents this morning, I was delighted to receive two 24-lecture courses from The Great Courses:
- Building Great Sentences: Exploring the Writer’s Craft
- Analysis and Critique: How to Engage and Write about Anything
This thrills my soul in so many ways – first off, having parents who are so supportive and encouraging of my interest in writing… secondly, I love continuing education!… and, not least of all, the serendipity of resolving to become a better writer and almost immediately being presented with positive reinforcement is just too wonderful.
Watch out, world!
