I have spent the last week in Maryland. Doing top secret government type work, and if I told you what it was I would have to kill you. Just kidding I did have to go there for a training class regarding the safety of the city of Chicago. It was fun, well as fun as it can be to prepare for national emergencies. Fear not fair city I learned that we are far better prepared than most places. So that made me happy and the class was interesting.
But while I was there enjoying overly salted cafeteria food and the peace and quiet of not having small children and pets around, did I do anything even remotely interesting. Absolutely not. I only knit about 5 rounds on my sock, I wrote maybe one more chapter of my novel and I slept. I did although I am embarrassed to admit it sing karaoke, and I was not even remotely close to drunk. I would not admit it to the world like this but I fear there maybe pictures floating around. Before everyone jumps to conclusions that I have thrown off my cautious and introverted ways, let me explain. There was a large group of us there from the windy city and all of us that were there that night got up and sang Sweet Home Chicago. I will admit it was fun. My boss however was conspicuously absent. After that I went back to my dorm room and slept.
So now I am back home and I am debating taking an online writing course or just trying to muster through it on my own. I figure some professional help might be good, but limited funds and time are definitely constraints. So if anyone knows of one let me know. I have been looking into Gotham Writers Worshops, Writers Digests Online Workshops, and there is a continuing education program thru University of Chicago, but you have to actually go to the classes for that one. If anyone has any input let me know.
Until I make any decisions I will be trudging along with my current work in progress. Also I am determined to finish these socks and keep working on my other works in progress knitting wise.
My next post will hopefully take place soon and I will remember to bring my camera out of hibernation.
Thanks for listening
