So I’m thinking of applying to a writing workshop again, because
I like the fun of getting rejected I like to keep people on their toes. The problem is that I have no project. I don’t want to write a book (on what? being a mom? I think there are a hundred of those out there). I just want to write. By far one of the most fun experiences of my life was spending a week writing with the Uncle Louie people. So I want to do it again.
But I guess having a Project is advisable in the world of getting people to give you money to just go write for a week. The only academic interest I have du jour is ministry with/for families with young children, but since I only read about it and don’t actually do it, that would be a very short book report. What can I make up to be my project? Laundry? Snow boots?
Le sigh. I wish the world weren’t so goal-oriented. To do a DMin in preaching, you have to have a congregation. What if you just want to be a better preacher? To get into a writing thingy, you most likely need a project. What if you just want to write?
Perhaps I am aimless. Or maybe I just want a liberal arts approach to post-graduate life. I don’t know. But if you can think of something that I can call my project, I’d dig it.
