Learning to write
My wife purchased a most wonderful present for me for our 15th wedding anniversary – a two year apprenticeship with the Christian Writers Guild. I am really looking forward to this.
It is basically a two year program that takes someone who is interested in writing (novels, non-fiction, poetry, articles, etc), pairs them up with a mentor, and teaches them how to write. Then there is another level – the journeyman course – that helps that person finetune their skills. The Journeyman level is a one year course.
I’ve been writing on and off for 20 years – dumping my personal thoughts to paper in various forms – poetry, journaling, essay’s, etc. I’m very excited about seeing this hobby of mine grow to a new level.
For right now, I’m mainly interested in helping my daughter, Maggie, write her book. We want to do it together. Should be a lot of fun.
She is busy with occupational therapy and speech therapy. It really does feel like we have entered a new phase.
