My wonderful best friend, Melissa, enrolled me into a class at Forsyth Tech. I've been saying for years that I want to better my writing skills and I'd love to actually do something with my writing (be published in a magazine or write a book or just have a blog with 50 million followers). But, I'm a procrastinator... and that whole self-doubt thing kept getting in the way too. Yeah, ok, it was mainly the procrastinating thing.
Well, Melissa decided to take matters into her own hands. She found a writing class that actually started today. The course also repeats at the end of March and Melissa gave me the choice of starting today or waiting for the next round. I figured since this first session started today (on my birthday - as in I'm a year older... which should mean I'm also another year wiser), I'd take that as a sign that I should be in this class NOW. Soooo, I just finished reading over the class notes and the instructions surrounding the first assignment. I'm so excited about this.
To Melissa - how in the heck can I thank you for this awesome present??? You are truly a blessing to have in my life. I am honored to call you my friend!
