But really, I have an obsession with online learning. Ever since I joined the RWA last year, I've had access to dozens of classes on writing, research, marketing, and self-publishing (not to mention the RWA convention which was craft classes 8-5 every day). I've simply glutted myself, attending three or more a month for the last twelve months.
And what did I learn from all of these classes you ask?
- If you take too many classes you don't have time to actually write. :P
- You are not expected to participate in these classes but you get so much more out of them when you do.
- My writing is not as bad as I feared it was.
- My writing has lots of room to improve--and it will every time I write something new.
So this year, less classes, more meditation, more writing! I published one story in 2012 and two in 2013. I want to see if I can make 3 or more for 2014. Wish me luck!
