One step closer

I started an online writing course tonight. Not very strenuous but it is a step in the write ( hee hee hee, I am so funny!) direction. I need to find time to write. I mean seriously write. People always say, "If you have time to be on the computer or watching TV, you have time to write!" But that isn't necessarily true.

On the computer or watching TV, I can immediately attend to the needs of my children, such as reading off a 1st grade spelling list or helping with 2nd grade math. I can't do that in the midst of writing an intense, or even not-so-intense, scene.

So maybe this class will force me to make an appointment with my muse, so to speak .
