Yay! I found out today I got into a course I applied to. I know, I must be insane doing this on top of yoga school, but this class is (hopefully) only lecture and it's on Wednesday nights, which doesn't clash with anything. Plus it's really near my house. It lasts 8 weeks, excluding Thanksgiving.

It's called "Chick Lit: How to Write It, How to Get Published" and it's taught by an author, Stephanie Lehmann, who is also a literary agent! I read her latest book and liked it. The application involved a letter of interest and a writing sample, so I sent the first 1,750 words of my novel. The sample happened to end on a cliffhanger, always a good thing, I figured.

So...yay!

Hooray! That sounds fun! Hopefully it will be the laid-back, fun learning experience that will balance out the tough yoga lessons. :)

Wait, what? Your novel? So, it's not published yet, which is why you're taking the course? :) Let us know when it's published so we can buy it!!
