What have you been getting up to lately?

I are a UL

A few weeks ago, the good folks at the Georgian Court University asked if I would like to teach their creative writing course this semester. I've taught a couple of weekend summer writing workshops there, so I had a good foundation to get me started on the 28 lessons plans I needed to come up with.

I like teaching. It's fun to help other folks learn new skills, and there's nothing like trying to explain the how and why of things to focus your own understanding of a subject. During extra research, I always pick up useful tips and different approaches which I wouldn't otherwise get.

The additional work involved means I won't have so much time for library talks etc., at least not for the first part of the year, but once I have a better idea of just how much outside of class work is involved, I plan to hit the road with my new library/college talk, The Power of Popular Fiction.

All in all, I'm having an excellent start to the year.

How about you?
