Ripening Thoughts of Creative Writing

“There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt.” ~ Andre Lord

Today, I am thinking about growth as a writer. I am betwixt and between about whether or not to sign up for a creative writing course. One minute I am resolute in my decision; the next  I am waivering.

“What’s the hesitation?” you might ask. It’s scary. What if my left brain attributes override my creative side?  Except for a lot of independent publishing education, I haven’t stepped into a classroom for many years. But, then I think of all the benefits that a creative writing course could bring me. Perhaps I’d find ways of putting together  new bouquets of words that have meaning, and I’d grow as a writer.

For now I will let thoughts of  signing-up deepen on the vine.  Just like after a long cold winter, the warmth of sunshine on my skin brings fufilling and enriched feelings. If I decide to harvest the idea of becoming a more creative writer and jump into action, I will commit and register.

I don’t know what to do. I am thinking.  “Do I really have time to fit it into my already busy schedule?”  You are thinking ” She’s procrastinating and not making a decision.”

It is the reason for this blog posting. It has been said that if you write down your intentions, thoughts are more likely to become a reality. Now that my blog readers know of my dilemma, I feel the pressure. Why, oh, why did I ever mention it?

In a few days, I will let you know what I’ve decided, in the meantime, perhaps a book on creative writing might
motivate me. Lets see what’s on the list.Creative Writing Books.
