[ tell me a story ]

SO I'M going to let you in on a little secret...



I'm taking a creative writing course. Yup. That's why it may seem as though I've been a bit of a bad blog friend lately and I've been neglecting all of you ~ I'm deep into developing my characters and outlining my plot. 

I know what you're thinking ~ What? So, she thinks she's a writer now? Well, not exactly. But what better way to while away Dubai's sizzling summer than to pretend I'm in another world? And heck, who knows ~ maybe along the way I'll unleash my inner J.K. Rowling! 

Anyway, just thought I'd let you know what I've been up to and hopefully you'll understand if I'm a little distracted. I'm off to submit my character sketch...

That's so cool! I took a creative writing class as an elective in college and it ended up being one of my favorites. (Except for the time the professor told me the short story I sweated over was rather trite!)

Cool! That sounds like fun - sometimes we need to do something a little different or out of the ordinary. I think it develops character! ;-)

Oh Lisa I think it's fantastic that you are taking a creative writing course. I took CW in university - just for fun - funny, my BF did too and she is a writer now! Me? NOT so much. HA! Good luck, keep us updated on your progress through the course. PS - Muskoka misses you!
