Today I would categorize as a lazy day….I slept waaay in, I guess I needed it. The rain and thunder helped lull me back to sleep and of course I have another lake in my front yard.
I did make it to my teacher’s yoga class and she went over the hour…I don’t know why I am surprised. I wasn’t sure how long it would take me to get downtown so I left before Savasana……I don’t recommend that.
I was nervous enough and there was no way I was adding showing up late on top of it.
My six week workshop is led by a college professor who looks so young…. I was worried that I was going to be the only old person and actually….I fall in the middle. My level of “some college” versus degree holders is a bit intimidating. Some of the books that were mentioned I have never heard of, but that’s okay that’s not why I am there. The critiquing part might be/will be tough and hopefully it will help. It is time to shit or get off the pot…..I need to start writing! I am a lot bit terrified but I need to do this….I have to know if I have the tiniest bit of talent.
I need to study up on short stories, when I try to think of stories that I have read I can only come up with Cat’s Eye and Nightshift by Stephen King…..who my professor/workshop leader has actually met. That’s pretty big in my eyes, I have always been a fan.
They moved the time up for future meetings so my yoga will no longer be in the equation, I will just have to try and make a different class with a new teacher earlier in the day.
We do have a little assignment and when I finish mine I will run it by you for some pre-constructive criticism……I hope I know what the heck I am doing……Zia
