Write the Story @ Ferguson Library: Pre-Class Post #5

This is the last post before our class begins on Tuesday, September 13. I'll continue posting optional exercises and readings on Fridays.

As we approach the first meeting, I want to share a quote that has been on my mind this week:

“What I try to do is write. I may write for two weeks ‘the cat sat on the mat, that is that, not a rat.’ And it might be just the most boring and awful stuff. But I try. When I’m writing, I write. And then it’s as if the muse is convinced that I’m serious and says, ‘Okay. Okay. I’ll come.’” — Maya Angelou

In the next few days, try to visit the page every day. Don't worry about whether what comes out is “boring and awful.” Also don't worry about whether you have enough time. (You never will.) Just promise yourself to show up, and see what happens.

I look forward to meeting you all!
