Online Classes

I'm thinking about taking an online fiction writing class in January. I've been wanting to try my hand at writing a novel for a while, but so far haven't found the motivation to start. I used to write all the time when I was younger, but somewhere along the way I just stopped. I write plenty for school, but nothing for myself.

I saw the movie Twilight yesterday, which I know is based on a book written a few years ago (I'm planning to read it soon; I'm interested to see whether I'll loathe or love it, since there don't seem to be too many opinions falling in between. I like strong female protagonists. I've heard Bella is not one. So you can guess which side I'm leaning towards already). The author said the idea came to her "in a dream." I don't doubt that; I have so many dreams where, upon waking, I lie there thinking to myself "this would make a great story." I've never written any of those dreams down, but I want to start!

But, the class is $89. Is an online class worth that? I guess if it gets the creative juices flowing... then yes? I'm sure I can come up with the money somehow.

I'm a true believer that money spent on educating oneself is never a waste. As Suze Orman says, if you have money in the bank to pay for it, I say go for it! Nothing is more expensive in life than regret. You've got my approval.

I'm actually really looking forward to the class! :) And who knows... maybe one day this could be a second career? Or at least a relaxing pastime.

I think it's totally worth it taking a class for $89. I love taking classes just for fun. Who knows? You could find a great job.
