Thoughts on beginning a writing class

It’s called Writing II: Rhetorical Composing, this online course I’m taking.  And it’s day One.  I don’t know what could possibly come of a recipe that mixes anxiety  with curiosity and worry and adds in a significant dollop of vulnerability.  It looks like I’ll be writing a lot.  Some of that writing might migrate over here, but I’m guessing this will be a kind of meta- blog for a while – a place where I can write about the writing I’m doing, what it feels like, what it’s doing (or seems to be doing) to my work, my processes, my psyche.  Stay tuned.  Or tune out, if this kind of angsty wonderment isn’t your thing.

At the end of the day, if this whole thing causes my head to explode (or more likely implode), I can always blame my friend the Very Doctor J. R. Daniel Kirk who turned me on to this whole Coursera thing in the first place.  I’ll get him back one day… Maybe in that Kierkegaard class we’re considering in October…
