I can’t remember the last time I took a risk. I mean I haven’t pushed my boundaries socially or professionally in such a time to merit mention.
But I suppose the New Writing 201 course that I have registered for is a start. This four week course starting in December, will challenge me as a blogger and teach me to organise my thoughts in long-form writing. I will have to focus on four different kind of pieces of writing: interview, instructional, opinion and personal essay. The aim is to publish these pieces in whatever form is suitable. Throughout the process there is workshopping, including sharing excerpts and asking for critiques from other bloggers.
Yes I am nervous, but this is a challenge, right? I guess it’s time for me to be that envelope pusher.
Ps. Blogging 101 course posts a similar challenge: to learn to blog and develop my existing blog.
