SFU Novel Course

I just finished a writing course at SFU, taught by writer Nancy Warren.  It was one of those overview courses, with a little information about a lot of topics; nothing indepth but quite useful, especially coming from a person who has actually sold a fair amount of commercial fiction. 

But perhaps the most profound thing about the whole event was my 'outing' myself as a writer.  This was it: the first time I showed up in public, proclaiming to be a writer, and had to present my work in front of others.  Unnerving but ultimately rewarding.  I was not laughed at.  So, it is time to move forward and get this book finished.  Hopefully the contacts I made will be useful as well.  Support from other aspiring writers is a necessary thing.
