My previous writing class ended last week and it was straight into the second level this week. And I have to say, I’m excited about it. There’s a new teacher, a few new faces — many of my classmates carried on — and a more focused agenda.
Which, of course, it would be, given that it’s the next class.
I’m still not exactly sure what I’m going to do with the information from these classes. Mostly they are filled with people who ultimately want to perform, and I don’t know that that’s me. Nearly all of my fellow students have taken improv classes and/or acting classes.
I’ll learn more of the mechanics of comedy, and there’s no waste in that, even if my writing continues to be in novel form. But I admit there’s something irresistible about putting words in someone’s mouth.
Maybe I should consider speech writing. If that’s not comedy, I’m not sure what is.
So off I go for another round. Will there be a third? I have no idea, it’s much too early to tell. But so far, 2 has had a good start, and hopefully it will only get better.
Check out my full-length novels, Her Cousin Much Removed, The Great Paradox and the Innies and Outies of Time Management and Aunty Ida’s Full-Service Mental Institution (by Invitation Only), and the sequel, Aunty Ida’s Holey Amazing Sleeping Preparation (Not Doctor Recommended) which is now available!
