The Adventure of Learning

“I am learning all the time. The tombstone will be my diploma.” ~Eartha Kitt

My first memories are of the joy of learning. My parents read to me every night, taking me on trips of the imagination. By age four I devoured books.  Kindergarten was okay, but come first grade, I found enlightenment.

I loved school, couldn't wait to go to class and generally was the person who sat in the front row [yeah, throw spit balls at me]. Every day presented an opportunity to learn something new and exciting.

That love of learning permeates my writing.  No matter how many books on writing I've read, workshops I've taken or books I write, I don't think I'll ever learn all that there is to know about writing.  That's why I'm excited this week to start a new online workshop with Laurie Schnebly Campbell: The Alpha Female.

As I work on my next Justice Hunter book about a woman on a journey to discover herself, I look forward on interweaving points of illumination from the class.
