This small town were I live (population about 20,500 according to the 2000 census I'm sure it's a bit more now) has, among other things, a fine small private university.
Today I registered to audit a creative writing class. I've wanted to take this particular class, taught by this particular professor, for a long time.
I have to give credit to my husband who happened to pick up a local entertainment magazine and read that the class was open for auditing. He suggested I look into it, in fact he encouraged it. I'm so happy he did!
I squeaked in under the wire, considering applying for admission was already "closed." But I was accepted and today I got to register.
After getting my schedule of one class, I went to the campus book store to see what books are going to be required. I was surprised to find there is just one, which I promptly bought. Then like a kid I had to get a university emblazoned spiral notebook!
Upon reading the preface and first chapter of the book I know it's right up my alley because it's about connecting to one's writing creativity through a very Zen approach.
As time allows and permits I hope to be able to share what I learn.
The book is called Wabi Sabi for Writers by Richard R. Powell.
