I made it

I'm worn out and gritty-eyed, but happy. The workshop that I ran over the last two days (and was rather apprehensive about) turned out to be extremely rewarding. There were fewer people than there should have been, which actually made it a managable group size, and they were all prepared to interact and get stuck in. As a result, I think they all got a lot out of it. It was a real pleasure to run it with them.

So what was I so worried about? I wish I could avoid getting stressed about these things.

Now I can turn my attention to the Creative Writing course. My tutor group is open, and I've popped in to say hello. I've still not posted on the main course site, as I'm afraid of spending any spare hours I've got trying to keep up with it instead of doing some writing. Which, incidentally, ground to a halt during the last week. No writing has been done apart from emails to careers queries.

We've just been to Banbury today and I've bought my favourite type of sketchbook (Daler Rowney A4 spiral bound hardback) so I can do some illustrated journalling. The good thing about having worked all last week is I've got next week off work as time-in-lieu. So I'm going to catch up with all my creative activities. Can't wait.
