Life Changes

I have decided to go back to school to get a graduate certificate in ecological design and planning up in Seattle. My hope is that this will give me skills to be a part of my community in more practical and meaningful ways and at the same time it will give me skills to help me earn a living! I'm very excited about this. It's a nine month program which I may do in a year so that my winter writing retreat isn't shortened.

This shouldn't impact my writing negatively. In fact, it may reinvigorate my nonfiction writing career. We'll see what happens! I'll be commuting to Seattle once a month, so it will be interesting. I'm looking for places to stay and financing. They don't do a lot of scholarships for graduate programs. It's not very expensive, though, so hopefully we can swing it. I hope you wish me prosperity, good health, safety, and fun! I'll wish you the same, in any case. And I'll let you know how it all goes. It's all an adventure.

P.S. And since I'm not Facebooking, I plan on posting here regularly again.

Congrats! I'm beginning to research grad school possibilities too.

Win/Win! and a pinch to grow an inch.
Still think your jackpot is in your writing - Non-fiction.

Wherever ye are a star.
