On the other hand, I really enjoyed myself. Believe it or not, this is the first classroom writing instruction I've had since basic English in high school: I've taken three other writing classes, but they were all correspondence courses. (Pre-internet!) I've met good people and had fun, and it's put a little fire back into my writer's furnace, to to speak. I even got a fairly decent short story out of it.
Now I need to spend more time on my writing, and less time ... well, less time surfing the internet! If I want to get published, I need to make some serious lifestyle changes. A wannabe writer talks about writing; a writer writes.
