"In dreams begin responsibilities."
- My father quoting
Delmore Schwartz

Next Tuesday is the start of Masha Hamilton's 10-week beginning novel writing online class. It's been a good 15 years since I took a writing workshop that lasted longer than a weekend and I'm both excited and terrified about it. Part of my terror is imagining how I'll keep up with the assignments in the face of my job, freelance magazine writing assignments, mothering, daughtering, spousing, and dog caretaking duties.

Something needs to give and it'll probably be housekeeping and this blog. I still plan to post regularly, but I'll do so as a treat after I've finished my homework.

Great illustration! Good luck! (And I hope you won't be chopping firewood, too.)

Good luck with all that! I'm sure it will all inform and contribute to your writing. I dream of taking a class with Masha someday...

Yay! I'm very excited for you.
